Match day 7 NIFSA league sponsored by DAIWA

Match day 7 NIFSA league sponsored by DAIWA.

We had 58 anglers due to fish this match of which 55 turned up, which is one of the biggest fields shore match angling has seen in Northern Ireland in a while.

The venue was sunny Benone where a straight southerly breeze meant the wind was on our backs and kept the temperature very mild for November.

We fished two hours to top of tide and three down, though the tide didn't move an awful lot.

Species caught were flats, turbot, bass and coalfish.
