El Paraiso May Fishing Competition

El Paraiso May Fishing Competition

The May fishing competition was held on Wednesday 6th with 10 anglers taking part, reduced numbers due to holidays and hospital appointments. We only allow 12 anglers which we consider just right for the size of the lake, at present we have about 20 anglers who enter as and when they can but we still managed only the 10.

The June competition is fully booked, there will be a few disappointed regulars who have missed out but the list for names has been available for the past 6 weeks. The July sheet will be available from next week so if you dont want to miss out go to the bar and pay your 10 €. The competition is always the 2nd Wednesday of the month.

There was quite of few of the heavier carp caught around the 10-12 lb and only 2 dry nets.
