Cashel Trout Fishery

With unsettled weather at times anglers are put to the test in deciding which fly and when.  Maghera’s Bernard Mellon released nineteen trout which took all sorts of buzzers and some dries.  Dungiven’s Mark Boyce had a similar experience banking sixteen trout in total over two short days.  Paul Rathfield (Limavady) was delighted when he hooked and released four nice trout which took a small yellow lure and small dries.  Derry’s Billy Hazlett had an interesting day rising at least a dozen trout but only one for home which weighed 3lb.  Sean Mc Williams (Feeny) released three trout which took a suspender buzzer while Derry’s Paul Ford used lures to bank his four great trout.  John Hasson (Dungiven) had a challenging time banking four trout which took the wee f-fly and a cat’s whisker.  Martin Mellon (Portglenone) released a dozen great trout which fell to assorted dries and buzzers.  Larne’s Hugh and Gerald Steele had a challenging day also trying out new things and they are quite new to the sport of fly fishing.  They raised a few trout but unfortunately missed a lot too.  Keep trying and you will succeed!
