July 16th, 2012 | by Nancy Hearne
Sam Andrews, Shanes Castle Demesne, sends us this photo of a specimen 18 lb. Dolloghan Trout from Lough Neagh, he caught on salmon shrimp fly on River Maine at Shanes Castle. Sam tells us that he quickly measured the fish on the handle of his landing net at 33 inches and that the fish was a rare strain of “Bodagh Dollaghan” which run the river from Lough Neagh and he quickly returned this magnificent fish of a lifetime after a very dogged fight to the net. This fish is our Catch of the Week
