He is far from a solitary 2LB fish though. Locals who fish it a lot say there are certainly more of him up there. Hanging about under trees, they are usually fairly experienced fish though so a real challenge. Tight lines indeed (must try the Boyne and the Kings river at some point)That’s a cracking fish for above the lakes, never mind above lexlip
It’s not an area I’ve fished much, I usually fish the Liffey around Clane and Straffan. Nothing more than 2lb from the Liffey this year, I stalked one around 5lb for 2 hrs one night this summer. He was taking spinners but only about 1 in 10 that passed him. The closest I got was when he nudged two of my offerings, but with no intention of taking.
The Boyne is somewhere else that fishes well to streamers, potential for a monster.
4 more more weeks for a biggie, tight lines!
