Hi All
Draw for the NIFSA open will take place in the Bridge Inn (McCauleys) in Carnlough village. Time of draw will be from 12.30pm-2.00pm. YOU MUST BE THERE BY THAT TIME OR YOU WILL MISS THE ENTRY AND BE UNABLE TO FISH.
Refresher courses for beginners and anglers new to the sport will be on Carnlough beach from 12.30-1.00pm inclusive and holding these sessions will be Jonathan Gilbert and Jonathan Kitson. A bowl of stew will be available f.o.c. for all returning anglers afterwards. If you don't come back and claim your winnings the prize will automatically go to the next angler. We have a massive prize table for winners, lucky pegs and raffles so make sure you come back to the Bridge afterwards.
