Ulster River Championships 2024

The Ulster River Championships was held on Sunday 21st April 2024, and were hosted by Camowen Community Anglers Association, on the Tonegan River. The day was tough going, starting with a frost, then clear sunny skies and very little cloud cover, and the temperature rising to 16 degrees, with thirteen anglers from Ulster taking part. A size limit was set at 20cm and a total of 38 fish were measured on the day. The most fish caught was  by Andrew Sloan, and the longest fish measured was 27.4cm, and was caught by Paul Douglas from the Black Pennells.
Results are as follows:
1st Andrew Sloan, with 4 placings. DADAC
2nd Philip Poots, with 10 placings. DADAC
3rd Mark Sloan, with 11 placings. DADAC
4th Brian Russell, with 12 placings. DADAC
5th Paul Douglas, with 13 placings. Black Pennells
6th Stuart McMurran, also with 13 placings. DADAC. Reserve
We would like to thank the Camowen Community Anglers Association for hosting this event, especially Elwin Jones and Joseph Owens and others from the club. To all the controllers who helped on the day, without them these competitions would be very different indeed. The day finished with Hotdogs, Sticky Buns and drinks. We wish our competitors tight lines when they compete at the National Rivers, Mallow on Saturday 1st June on the River Blackwater.
Note: DADAC = Dromore and District Angling Club
