Few groups of anglers about and happy with their catches at Culliagh, Correen and the Brosna at Shannonharbour. A trio on a cruiser last evening were telling us that one of them hooked a pike about two pounds weight and as he reeled it in a pike of about 14 lbs grabbed hold and refused to let go .Finally he landed both and returned them to the Shannon.
Pays to look for a bargain. A regular English fisherman arrived yesterday and travelled with his car on the ferry. Cost £396 sterling less £66 worth of Shell petrol vouchers. He had bought the ticket well in advance and had also used some saving coupons collected when buying petrol. He was a bit sick when some days before he came he got a mobile phone text type message from the Senna Line ferry inviting him and his friends or family to visit Ireland.The cost Under £20 sterling each covering their car and passengers. Based on a five day return. Book by 5th May.
