Junior prizes were won by Ted Roche, Gavin Mitchell, Holy and Jack Rogan all of whom caught fish. Many were the tales of lost fish, break offs and broken rods. These stories were confirmed by the fact that the largest Rainbow measured 55cms. Carrigavantry is full of quality fish and when the wind blows there are some heart stopping rises to the hapless terrestrials that are trapped in the waves.

FLY FISHING ON KNOCKADERRY CARRIGAVANTRY BALLYSCANLON

Carrigavantry – This 30 acre reservoir is hidden in the hills behind Tramore.  The lake can be fished from the dam and road and the rest of the lake shore needs waders. The deepest part is the island at 10 feet.Prolific hatches of lake olives and damsels occur. Stocking is with both browns and rainbows. You could loose your catch here to a 20lb Pike!

Knockaderry – The deepest part of the lake is 24 feet at the dam tower, the average depth is 6ft and this results in good weed growth. Trout fatten fast in this fertile water on caddis, snails and stickle backs, while lake olives,buzzers sedges and damsels bring on prolific rises. This 80 acre reservoir is a traditional top of the water drift fishery.

New members are welcome and an active programme of fly tuition is pursued to encourage beginners and get our youth out into the countryside.
