Lough na Leibe
Lough na Leibe is continuing to fish very well with good catches reported by anglers. Most of the fishing on the Lough was done on Friday the 9th and Saturday the 10th March. On Friday, Bernard McDermott caught 6 trout including a well conditioned over wintered brown trout. Saturday saw the bulk of the action with many club members taking to the water. There were 25 reported fish, landed by 3 club anglers with additional catches also witnessed. Francis Brady banked 10 trout including one over wintered rainbow of approximately 3 lbs, Colm Walsh also had 10 trout including two good rainbows while Anthony Walsh caught 5 trout. Other anglers to catch on the day were Eddie Harte, Peter Walsh, Gerard McNelis and Darren McNelis. All of the reported fish were caught on the fly. The action on Saturday was attributed to a reasonable hatch of small duck fly. If you have a catch to report please e-mail it to the Club address, email@example.com. Successful fly patterns included small midge & nymph patterns and buzzers.
