39th Lough Melvin Open Trout Angling Championships

Chairman's Welcome

Dear Competitors and Friends,

The committee and I would like to welcome you all back to Garrison for this, our 39th Melvin Open. This could not be staged without your continued support.
We look forward to seeing old friends and making new friends at this annual event.

Please note that entry numbers will be restricted on a first come, first served basis. In the interest of conservation there will be in force a 6 fish bag limit per rod with a maximum of 12 fish per boat.

On behalf of the Committee and myself, I would sincerely like to thank all our sponsors, as without their continued support this competition would not be as successful.

As Chairman I would like to personally thank the Committee for all their hard work and dedication throughout the year and especially in organising this event.

Wishing you all a very successful and enjoyable weekend!

Tight Lines,
Sean Rasdale
