Name: Tommy McGrath
Compeition Secretary's report for The Moyola Charity Competition.
1st place went to tommy McGrath with a fine bag of trout on the fly.  
In 2nd place was Stanley Aspinall with the heaviest trout so far this season of 1lb 4 oz and in 3rd place was Seamus Donnelly with a trout of 1lb 1oz.  
The best junior was Jason Bateson.  There were 30 seniors and 4 juniors out today.  Conditions were fine but the water levels were very low.  
The fish were rising very well today but hard to get.  
A total of £600 was lifted for Cancer Research and Down Syndrome.  donations and prizes were given by Newbridge Stores, Huestons Tackle Shop Castledawson, Stanley Aspinall, Crawdfords Tackle Shop Maghera, Philip Maguire Lough Beg Joinery, Meryvn Findlay and Willie Darragh.  
A big thank you to all those sponsors and to all the fishermen on the day. Some came from as far away as Millisle in county Down. A big thanks also goes to Philip Maguire for cooking the BBQ once again.  
The league table has Tommy McGrath on 90 points, Philip Maguire on 80 points,Joey O'Neill on 79 points, Stanley Aspinall on 74 points, Patsy Harkin on 64 points and Brian Bigmore on 56 points.

Robert Paul showed us all a thing or to about still water fishing while lifting first place for the heaviest bag over the weekend and all were returned.  Willie Darragh the big fish specialist did it again with a fine fish of 3lb 1 oz to take the spectrum cup.  Having the same gillie as last year always improved Willie's chances.  Speedy and Tom with a total of 192 years experience between then but not in launching boats managed to launch the boat with no one in it and sink the trailer but Speedy managed to get the soft seat in the front once again.  Mervyn managed to land a couple of fish this time, Speedy was his gillie.  Running out of yellow cards for Joey, he tried to way in foreign objects and half a bag of water along with his fish.  Patsy Harkin brought the waders with the holes in them, so he tried to dry them out on the towbar of his car but forgot to lift them when he got home so if anyone finds a black and white and a brown sock around Fermangh then their Patsy's.  A big thanks to Joey, Stanley, Patsy and guests Tom and Aidan for providing the music but wee Tom stole the show.  Brian managed to stay out of the water this time.  Well done to juniors Jason and John who did very well over the weekend.  John McCombs is still learning the words to 'old dogs and children and watermelon win' .....maybe next year!!!Finally a big thanks to Bernie and Philip for all their help and cooking over the weekend.  

Chrissy Gilmore and Big Jack Chapman also need a mention, mainly for their inability to land a trout.."I'll never be back" exclaimed the big man at the wiegh in on Sunday evening.
As always our competition secretary fails to be mentioned in the fermanagh reporter. So if anyone has any dirt on Mr Mc Grath please let us know via the website.

Just a quick thanks to all for the great weekend in Fermanagh, Philip and Bernie for the use of their camper van facilities, Willie for the use of his barbeque, Seamus for organising the food, Joey and Stanley for the musical entertainment, to all those who participated and not least Tommy for all the organisation.

A little light entertainment was provided by one respected angler who showed all present  how not to launch a boat. He quickly followed this up with  a bonus demonstration  why auto- inflating life jackets should not be  thrown into the bottom of a waterlogged boat.
