A great hatch of mayfly at the Lough Fern Classic

May 27th, 2015 | by

The Milford & District Fly Angling Club held the annual Lough Fern Classic Catch & Release competion last Saturday and Sunday. Competing anglers were met with near perfect conditions and a great hatch of mayfly!

The competition was fished on a catch & release basis with only brown trout of 28 cms or over counting for points. Each Trout of 28 cms scored 100 points and every centimetre over 28 scored and extra 20 points.

Local angler, David Roulstons’ score of 760 pts with 5 trout on Saturday was enough to take the top prize over both days.
