For Olives try Kenny's Bay south from Greenfields which can be good or north to Ballynalty Bay.I am heading over saturday - I will be fishing out of Greenfields - any recomemndations ??
PM me your phone number and if I am ever heading up on my own I will give you a buzzHello all,
Sorry to lob this post into this thread but I didn't know where else to post it!
I'm from Mayo, live in the Galway area and am interested in fishing Corrib but sadly I have nobody to fish it with! No boat doesn't help but I'm working on that. Most of my mates are either tied down with kids or too hung over on a saturday/sunday morning to be any good for fishing!
I've fished it in the past using a guide, but being from Mayo most of my salmon/trout fishing has been on Lough Conn and the Moy and some smaller lakes around Westport like Bilberry.
If there's anybody who heads out on Corrib and Mask who wouldn't mind a bit of extra company, I'd be very grateful to join... and happy to chip in for fuel or any other costs. Or if there's anybody who doesn't have a boat but rents one occasionally and wants to share the cost of renting a boat and engine from time to time that would also be great. Just send me an IM and we can work something out.
Thanks for reading
In the evening female buzzers returning to the water ? but you should have been able to see them, could you see anything on the water ? What were the rise forms like ?Saturday was to bright and still, I took 1 fish top of Balynalty on dry olive in the afternoon, from 6 onward there was plenty of fish moving. I emptied the fly box but was at a loss to what they were taking !!!! Anyone any ideas ??
Have done so JJ. Thanks very much.Same here, send me your number in a PM.
WulffAll I could see was a very small black fly, I tried a size 16 black gnat !!
trout were rising consistantly - smallish rise, just breaking the surface would they be taking something just under the surface ?
I'm going to give it another lash on Sunday - conditions will be more favourable for Olives
Well over 400 and counting.Some form of Chrimonid, I think we have over 300 species in Ireland. 3 dries close together (some people favor spreading them out) well ahead of the trout and leave them there. Its easy to start thrashing the water with casts chasing rises but you will only put the fish down, stealth and patience is a must.
