Game Angling Season Closes With Record-Breaking Action

#Angling - The Irish Times' Derek Evans rounds up the hive of activity on Ireland's inland waterways as the game angling season drew to a close for 2013.

Records were broken in Cavan and Kerry, the latter's premier trout fishery of Lough Currane producing a near 15-pounder hen sea trout caught and released by Corkman Paul Lawton, while the former's section of Lough Sheelin saw the heaviest fish of the season, a 12lb "beauty", landed by Galway's Toby Bradshaw.
