I had a great start to the 2015 Waterways Ireland Classic week by winning the Bobby Smithers Memorial Open. With 210 anglers competing it was a big event.

I drew peg 1 on the Portora section. It was perfect for pole fishing, I caught just over 100 roach on the pole at 12 mts for 14,450 kg, cupping in at the start with Van Den Eynde Secret, and then loose feeding maggots and casters over the top. I caught really well for 2 hours and then struggled for the last 3 but still managed to win.

 

2nd on the day was England International Sean Ashby with 13,200 kg.
