    Default Lough Sheelin

    Hi folks.

    Any reports from Lough Sheelin. No mayfly as of Monday I believe but should be any day now..

    Going up next week so hopefully that will be good timing.

    IFI had a report up that the going is slow, but what is being caught is a very large average size. That was last week though!

    I was on there at the weekend, a good few olives about but the trout were locked on to the mountains of buzzer.
    I've never seen balling buzzer as big, they were 3 inches in diameter which is kind of hard to imitate and the fish didn't really want anything else.
    I got one fish around 6lbs and a couple of smaller ones.

    Was sure I'd have reports of mayfly on Sheelin by now. Guess things are a little late with the cold weather through April. But any day now they'll appear I'm sure.. Going up Tuesday / Wednesday. First day out this year, can't wait!

    Make sure you have your permit as bailiffs were on the case last weekend.

    It doesn't usually come up on Sheelin until around the 18th/20th.

    Was on Sheelin yesterday, patchy Mayfly hatches, (probably as much sedge and olives hatching) fishing was patchy too. Some even saw no fish for the day others I spoke to happened on great spots of fishing in short bursts. I was lucky to land a nice 3lb fish on a wet mayfly pattern. Would say that the hatch never really took off in earnest! Its all ahead of us... Any day now :-) Going next week again.

    Heading out at the weekend myself, whereabouts did you come across the fish?

    The hatch should be starting in earnest now alright, hawthorn flower is in full bloom.
