Fished corrib on Thursday last. We started off with dries. Fishing around bog bay / porticarron area. The wind picked up in the afternoon so we switched to wets. We moved 25+ fish, mostly to the wets, and incredibly landed zero! We rose about 7 to the dries. I moved about 12 fish on wet mayfly and 3 on dries and didn't even bend the rod in one of them. Bizarre. I'd say 75% of what we rose were small fish but we did move a few decent lumps but could we hell get them to stick. We retired to the high stool at 6.30pm dejected. One of them days.. actually conditions were OK for most of the day. Thought I'd post an update.

Cheers.
JJ

On salthouse yesterday...sunny calm conditions, had to resort to buzzer fishing...one nice fish and several hooked and lost...sadly the water quality on the corrib is deteriorating thanks in no small measure to the removal of agricultural quotas, it is now a free for all and the environment is suffering as a result...

Cheers Brian, interesting to know the buzzers work this time of the year..
I fished yesterday (Sunday), between Greenfields / Carramore shore / west side of rabbit island.. We fished dries for the day. It was pretty slow. We moved some fish, probably mostly smaller fish, I landed one near 1 3/4lbs and my partner broke in a big fish. Tough going, conditions were ok early on but got calm and then sunny towards the end of the day.

Cheers,
JJ

Few fish seem to be getting caught, reports saying they are daphnia feeders. Do ye guys go beyond an intermediate for them ?

Stylie I use an intermediate for most of my wet fly fishing, on the odd occasion i will use a slow sinker early in the season.... for buzzer i use a floating line...

I am much the same, just wondering is anyone going deeper or is there a need for it. Or is 'daphia' feeder a bit of a loose term used for any trout caught over deep water.
