    Default Lough Conn

    Has anyone been out on Conn recently? Any reports? Also..there have been one or two references in reports to "Pratts Bay"..which bay is that?? Ive fished the upper part of the lough for 30 yrs and Ive only heard Pratts bay mentioned this past three years.

    No trips on Conn this year yet unfortunately. Hope to get a trip out with then next 2 weeks. That's a new one to me as well and also Flannerys bay that is mentioned. Not on any maps of the lake I have.
    An email to the fisheries office and Declan who puts up the report might have some information on that bay.

    I know Flannerys well. That's the bay on the inside of Errew peninsula. It runs from Errew bay up to the islands and the other side of the islands is Neds bay

    The Errew shore itself is a lovely drift there are usually fish to be seen moving along here.
    Good place for a brew stop too. Will be there in a couple of weeks, I hope the fishing has improved.

    If I'm not mistaken that refers to the upper part of Bog Bay, look at the western shore on the inside of Castle Island. Some good fishing all around, just find the fly.

    Yes I had it confirmed that it was Bog bay....Funny how names can change like that.....Mind you I have felt like a prat many times in that bay lol having missed or lost quite a few fish there. Im heading down next weekend for the week so lets hope we get a bit of cloud......I seem to bring the good weather most years so lets hope this year is different

    Will be on there for the last three days of the same week. We can compare notes, I will be able to tell you exactly where the fish weren't.
