Johnny Hagley from Carrigallen had a lovely 35lb bag of bream from from Arva/Carrigallen/Killeshandra area a couple of weeks ago. So he went back a few days later and had 18lb including 2 bream of 4lb give or take a couple of ounce. The 35lb net was made up of 14 fish between 2-3lb.

He tells us “Whilst other anglers seem  to be struggling a bit locally I can assure everyone these fish and more are there and this looks like being a great season”
