    Hi Bogwoppit, caught him at the back of Church Island and just continued the drift to the shore from there. My mate lost a great fish at the end of that drift. He showed his tail twice shame we didn't get to see him in the bottom of the boat. Today is a kinder day and weather supposed to get milder and warmer so will be good at the weekend I reckon

    I use the balling buzzer. Not being smart, Google it, it's fairly simple.

    I didn't stay to fish the buzzer, all the locals were heading out at 830 at night to fish them. Supposed to be getting good fish on them at the moment.

    As bogwoppit says the balling buzzer is pretty simple fly!

    Use a Cluster - page 102 of June addition of Trout & Salmon.
    When all else fails , a running kick in the b0ll0x will often work wonders !!!

    Up to now mayfly fishing has been poor, been on the lough several times and best trout on mayfly dries about 4lb, very poor mayfly hatches so far and no gnat.
    decent hatches of buzzer late though.

    Its very simple really.
    This is what i use.

    size 10 or 12 hook, B170.
    Thread olive.
    Rib: clear mono 3lb or so, something fairly fine.
    Body: natural grey seals fur, other colours like olive can be used.
    Full palmered body hackle is silver badger or olive grizzle can be used.
    Leave small spaces between the wraps of the palmered hackle.
    I dont use a shoulder hackle.

    a small balling pattern, size 12, works good for single skating buzzers in the evening time.

    Anyone else been on Sheelin this week, can't make it this week but will go next. Hopefully the gnat will be fishing well then!

    Hi gentleman, anybody been out on Sheelin on the last few days? My mate had a 4lb fish Saturday, saw a lot of action on the surface. Yesterday was pretty wild I'd imagine. I'm going up Wednesday evening and Thursday so I'll report back then.
