20th - 28th July
With the weather still a major concern as to where to fish, plenty of heavy showers.
Thunder and high Winds every other day led to Peter Fishing in his old haunts such as Clondragh, Turnmonbarry (in the harbour) And his newly found spot nearer to home. Some fine bags of fish from each of these venues mostly of Roach and Hybrids.
Chris had his best catch of his life at Ballymahon Church when he captured a Wife!! (No weight known) all went very well; even I got netted in to give the Bride away.
Down at Doonis the moths are going mad, with Swallowtail and Brimstone moths turning up in large numbers, even an unidentified large brown moth.
13th - 19th July
Due to the state of the rivers, Peter and Chris have been forced to fish Still water venues as which has been the case for weeks now. Peter has tried most of the Canal by now, but found that the Longford Branch Canal proved to contain some really good Roach as well as small Bream.
Further travelling he found a perfect location not far from the Canal where he has produced plenty of prime Roach and Hybrids. Having to do a lot of preparation before hand he started to catch fish, getting good results, he continued fishing this venue for a further 3 days resulting in quality Roach and Hybrids falling to a mixture of baits (Corn, Maggots and Worm)
Peter was met by anglers that have been at the Harbour at Clondra only to report that it was a waste of time, to which the answer came that they must be doing something wrong!
Chris has been very busy over the last week (Born to Fish, Forced to Work.) so I will wait to catch up with him for any news.
1st - 3rd July
Weather is muggy and wet with very little wind. All the rivers have burst their banks with the Suck and Shannon almost unfishable. The Inny is running high and flowing very hard.
Peter has been busy down on the River Camlin at Clondragh Harbour catching large Bream and Roach. He took Chris for a trip down there and they managed a Tench and a large Hybrid in a few hours of fishing.
Down in Doonis Bog there was some excitement when a Pine Marten popped out for a photo opportunity before climbing to the top of a tree and settling down and going to sleep.
