2015 Drennan Tackle Distribution in Ireland

drennan ireland

The trout and salmon season is just com­men­cing again in the Republic of Ireland!

All Eire tackle shops with proper retail premises are now able to order dir­ectly with Drennan in Oxford, not only ensuring access to the full product range but also providing a much faster, more effi­cient courier delivery ser­vice.  This replaces the pre­vious whole­sale arrange­ment, which has oper­ated for some years, fol­lowing feed­back from anglers and shops.

If you’re an angler living in Ireland, please men­tion this to your local shop and make sure they con­tact us ASAP to organise their orders direct for the forth­coming season!

Lessons Learned From The PF Pairs

Alan Scotthorne reflects on the inaug­ural Preston Pole Fishing Silverfish Pairs com­pet­i­tion, which reached an exciting climax last weekend:



Alan Scotthorne in action.

What a fant­astic com­pet­i­tion this has been through the winter months! Hats off to Tom Scholey and Matt Godfrey of Pole Fishing magazine. Staging this four-match series across the country over four very dif­ferent com­mer­cial fish­eries with no proper carp counting was pure genius. I am sure this well-attended 50 pairs com­pet­i­tion will open the flood gates for more of this type of event. It exploits the untapped sil­ver­fish that are clearly in abund­ance in many carp lakes.

I fished this league with my son Oliver and knew from the onset that it would be a tall order to make the top five pairs with our lim­ited exper­i­ence of com­mer­cial sil­vers and the venues these matches were held on. It was a good learning curve for us both and here are just a few of the things that we picked up on the way that will hope­fully expand our know­ledge for next year.
