“We had a great seven days in Ireland at Lough Muckno,” Simon explained. “Fantastic fishing and organisation, with parking behind every peg a bonus! Myself and Steve Harwood had a great trip, winning the two-day Muckno Pairs and following up with 1st and 2nd in the five-day Autumn Festival.

“The fishing was pole/short line in the main, but also two days on the feeder for myself on Black and White Island for some skimmers, bream and hybrids. The last day, Friday, was a roach race. I had 315 fish at 10m for 14.7kg to win the match and the festival by just 900g ahead of Steve. 

“Also a big well done to our house mates Lee Klimczuk and Mark Pollard for coming 3rd and 4th respectively.”
