    Lough Carra

    Finally some success.. A perfect evening on Carra last Saturday, started at 3pm and finished at 6:30pm, the weather was warm, with a light SSW wind / ripple, sunny with some cloud cover. A quick drift past cow island, no joy, then pushed the boat forward to the twins, where I missed a couple of...

    Lough Carra

    Was out on Carra July 5th for the last 2 hours of light, no joy. Fished down the south of the lake, out from Brownstown and turn left headed for Ballinrobe i guess, little or no fly, seen a couple of fish rise once.. Disappointing to say the least. Anyone else out?

    Lough Carra

    Folks, Last week, I left a boat on Carra, I now live close by, so while I wait for a berth in Cushlough on Mask, I may as well try Carra. I fished Carra a few times, but that was a more than a decade ago now, the main change I noted when I was out last week for the evening is that the Mayfly...

    Lough Corrib

    Fished Corrib Saturday evening the 19/04 and as one of the lads noted above got the head burnt off me all evening and when it got to the serious stuff the trout were feeding reasonably well but going like race horses which was difficult to keep with as it was just me and the dog! Resulting was 1...

    Lough Corrib

    Hi folks, my first ever comment on this forum. Here goes: Fished Corrib / Greenfields on Saturday from lunch time to dark. Plenty of duckfly hatching throughout the session, little or no activity from feeding trout on the surface until in or around 19:30. Then the lake displayed its massive...
