Catch report by Marlene Mc Laughlin

Although the weather has not been the least bit encouraging anglers still tried their best to make a few catches.  Feeny’s Brian Mc Ginnis released two trout which took an olive cat’s whisker.  Young Daniel Reilly (Maghera) had a great time catching a real clinker weighing 3lb 4ozs and then went on to bank six more which fell to bloodworms and buzzers. 

Vincent Doherty and Christopher McKinley (Donegal) banked twenty between them with Vincent taking one home which weighed 2lb 9ozs.  These trout fell to bibios and daddies.  Dungiven’s John Hasson released fourteen trout over two short days using dries and the f-fly.  Jay Higgins released three which took the green nymph and a mallard. 

Trout FishingJim Russell (Monkstown) and his daughter Louise Dougan (Glengormley) had an enjoyable day using the Kate McLaren.  Accompanied by their friend, Danny Walker (Monkstown) they bagged two trout each and released seven others which all weighed an average of 2.25lb.  Dungiven young anglers Shea Irwin and Shane Irwin released three trout each which took the wee Montana and a few lures. 

Young eleven year old Cathair Mc Gilligan and his fourteen year old brother, Fiontan (Dungiven) did very well bagging a trout each for home which weighed a total of 5lb.  Not bad for beginners eh! 

Pat McGettigan (Drumsurn) bagged five trout weighing 14lb 3ozs and released an excellent fourteen which fell mainly to the yellow dancer.  Martin Bradley used suspender buzzers to trick his eight beauties. 

Well done to all!
