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 stock of quality trout, rising freely all around us Unfortunately, I could not rise 1 single trout, emptied my duckfly flybox. CDC Emergers, bobs bits, grey duster, epoxy buzzers etc.. So I wonder have any of the members here any pattern of dry flies for the adult duckfly that have a proven track record they would be prepared to share. Thanks in advance.
A good friend of mine had a brilliant weekend just gone on buzzer and pheasant tails. I think it was 10 fish to 5lb all returned, smallest around 2lb. Saw some photos, absolutely splendid trout.
Do you have to fish dry, the fish will be munching like mad under the surface.
