Well done Danny...3rd in the Masters!

Well done to clubman Danny Kane, who came 3rd in the National Boat Angling Masters!!! Danny and Sandra O' Shea were representing Cobh SAC at this years masters held two weeks ago in Killybegs. The fishing was very competitive with the best of the country's anglers slogging it out against each other over two days.

Danny did exceptionally well to finish in third spot. Its Danny's first time fishing the masters and, apparently, this is the highest finish by a first time competitor. Sandra did well aswell, finishing in 42nd spot out of 60 anglers, and the best anglers in the country at that. Myles Howell of Bray finished in first spot and Stven O' Neill of Guileen (who is a regular entrant in our light line competitions) finished in 2nd.

Danny now progresses onto the National Fish Offs on the October weekend where he competes in a two day competition to determine the Irish Boat team for South Africa in 2012. Danny couldn't have a better chance of making the national team as Cobh SAC is hosting this event and it is once more fished in Cork Harbour. Danny's experience of fishing the light line competitions over the last three seasons should stand to him as the fishing for the National fish offs is very similar. Go on Danny, you can do it!!!
