First competition of the new NIFSA league got underway

21 January, 2019 0 comments Leave a comment

The first competition of the new NIFSA league got underway on Portrush’s East Strand beach last night. 28 Anglers fish in quite calm condition, up and over high tide and mainly in darkness. The full moon had quite an impact with very little fish in some pegs. Zone A winner was Harry Mckee Jnr with 27 fish mainly small coalies. Zone A runner up was Gareth Bell with 22 fish. Zone B winner was Harry Mckee Snr with 11 fish mainly small coalies and turbot to 26cm. Zone B runner up was Karl McCullough with 7 fish. Longest flat went to Gareth Bell with a flounder of 33cm. And of course the longest round went to Jānis Liseckis for a bass of 36cm. Great craic with a good mixture of competition and social interaction. Well done all.

Great to see a big turn out for the Ross Jord Trout Fishery Memorial match at Conlig. The nominated charity was RNLI and some members of NIFSA turned up to support the cause and lend moral support. Pictured is Fishery owner Kevin Magill with NIFSA members Harry Mckee David Hilditch and Harry Mckee Snr. Well done Kevin on a neat and tidy well run fishery.


Enjoyable evening in Cushendun

The gathering of NIFSA anglers proved very fruitful but not very productive in fish terms at Cushendun tonight. 25 Anglers turned up for this fun event with a slight edge of competition to it as it was being fished for longest flat and round fish.
A lovely mild calm day with very little fish about allowed anglers to walk the beach and have a yarn with one another and get to know the new anglers that have just joined the Federation.
Eventually there were a few fish caught and winner of the biggest flatfish with a plaice at 35cm was Nicholas McNeill. Winner of the biggest round fish was Stephen Hodge with a coalfish of 29cm. 
A very enjoyable evening indeed.

Giving a little back

Northern Ireland Federation of Sea Anglers shore committee member Gareth Bell presents a cheque for £100.00 to Bangor RNLI staff Brian Lawther. This was achieved by keeping a percentage of our clothing sales towards a fighting fund for our saviours at sea. Without our coastguards watching over anglers, a lot of our members would have found ourselves in precarious situations in the past and we are forever grateful. Thank you from NIFSA.

Without sponsors, operating and running a Federation becomes a good bit harder. We would like to thank the 2019 sponsors for all help received and going forward in partnership with our Federation.
