The Buddy Martin Cup Pike Competition 2015

11/04/2015 10:19

The very first Memorial Buddy Martin Cup was held recently by the Ardee Pike Anglers on 2 of the clubs waters including Ballyhoe 1 & 2 and the stretch of river connecting , which was only recently cleared of overhanging and submerged trees by the commitee , a good turn out considering the weather which was a mixture of wintry showers on a very strong bitter wind  which saw a few anglers running for cover at times 

39 anglers took part and the cup was hotly contested from start to finish with over 150 pike being landed  , the heaviest of which was 12lb 12oz , the first winner of the cup is the well deserving Brendan o reilly with a bag of over 35lb (the newgrangepiker) 

Meathhill Angling Club would like to extent its good wishes to all those that took part , the winners and Ardee Pike Anglers on their first running of this cup ,  i,m told "Buddy" a true gentleman would have been proud ... WELL DONE LADS !
