#Angling - Nigel Greene was the big winner at the World Cup Trout Fly Angling Championships on Lough Mask over the August Bank Holiday, as Derek Evans writes for The Irish Times.

The Fermanagh fly fisherman bested a field of more than 450 anglers at the 62nd hosting of the event, considered “the ultimate prize in trout angling”.

Greene’s final count total of seven fish with a weight of 9.772lb put him almost half a pound over his closest rival – despite Kanturk’s Michael Twohig catching one more fish.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
