The Inny boys strike again with bank to bank fish!
May 25th, 2012 | by Nancy Hearne
23/05/12: A report has come from the Tiverton Boys with a few Pictures of their recent angling holiday. The Boys found it difficult to locate fish on a lot of venues around Leitrim and North Longford mostly as a result of the weather, but finally they did make up for all the miles they did. With good catches of Bream from Lough Allen part of a 60lbs Bag, a picture of a good brace of Inny Roach from Chris one of 1lb 14ozs and one of 1lb 12ozs and a shot of Rob with some more good Roach. The fishing was far from being as good as previous trips but they were quite happy with their stay.
24/05/12: Now that the weather has turned for the good, with temperatures in the 20′s Chris and I drove across White Bridge today and stopped to look if there’s any Life in the river. It was full from bank to bank with Fish and as far up and down the river as one could see.
Chris and Peter have enjoyed some great catches on the Canal and Coreen Forde over the last week.
The two boyos are happy with their catch !
Peter this lunchtime, was back from fishing a backwater on the Shannon, very excited about his catch and to top up his ground bait and a bite to eat himself then to return to this swim in record time. We will await the results with baited breath.
Down at Doonis Bog the wildlife has exploded into life with Water Scorpions breeding, Green Hairstreaks, Dragonflies emerging with 4 Spot chasers and Hairy Hawkers. The Grasshopper Warbler was reeling down in Seery’s land and this years frogs are starting to appear. Even the local Peregrine has had at least two chicks.
