Sweethope Fishery Report 25th May 2015

The fishery has been very busy over the week leading up to the bank holiday and even in windy conditions we have had some great days. On Friday 18 rods caught 92 fish and on Saturday in less windy but sunny conditions 34 rods caught 101 fish.

By Sunday windy and colder conditions had put the fish down in the water but John Williams managed to bring 16 rainbows and 1 blue trout to the net using an intermediate line and a damsel nymph in the Great Lough.

The introduction of boats to the Little Lough has proved successful and all those who have taken advantage of this facility have caught fish I will be placing another buouy in a fourth location this week.
