The Bingara Anglers Club picked up their boat for their Easter raffle last week, in order to start selling tickets early. This has enabled them to purchase a bigger motor for the boat, 15hp, and also a fishing kayak as the second prize.
The boat is a 3.45m Horizon which is about 12 feet long in the old scale. The motor is a 15hp Mercury. It is mounted on a registered trailer. Look out for tickets which should hit the streets "real soon".
Stuart Lanagan reports that although the fish have been a bit quiet of late Blue McManus landed an 18 pounder recently, caught on a chicken chipee.
The spot where it was caught is a closely guarded secret but apparently when it was gutted it contained 30 golf balls and a half putter!
