Practice Makes Perfect

Well done to DTAA member Eoin Dunne who came sixth place in the National Final  on Lough Mask this weekend . Eoin spent three days on the lake with his friend James Doyle prior to the competition and his practice paid off as he caught Six trout measuring over the legal limit to secure him a place on the Irish team for 2017, Eoin will fish for Ireland in the UK sometime next year and we wish him the best of luck . Also well done to Gerry Heaslip , Cathal Mc donnell, and James Doyle who all managed to catch trout in the competition but unfortunately not lucky enough to end up in the top ten.
