Perseverance pays off in heatwave conditions on Mask

June 13th, 2018 | by

Ronan Cusack reports that angling on Mask has been quiet over the past couple of weeks due to the dry warm weather conditions we have been experiencing. Reports have been difficult to obtain, but the few anglers that are out have reported some success.

An Garda Sìochána Angling Club competed for the O’Connor Prendergast Cup on Mask last Thursday which was supported by 30 members. Unfortunately conditions on the day were difficult with light winds and blue skies which made for a tight contest. A total of six fish were weighed in with first prize going to Damien Barron from Co Offaly with 1 fish for 1.15lbs. In second position was Joe O’Connor, originally from Ballintubber in Co Mayo with a fish of 1.06lbs and in third place was Galway man Bob Bradley with a fish of 1.02lbs.

Local angler Kevin Sheridan fished with Martin Agnew from the midlands on Monday and they had 3 trout on dries (best fish 1.5lbs, all released). Kevin also had a fish of 3.5lbs over the weekend which was also released. Gerry O’Brien and his son Damien had 4 fish on dry Mays over the weekend along the northern end of Mask.

Mick Dunne and Martin McGowan had a bag of 14 pulling wets on Sunday (best fish 3.5lbs, all released bar 5).

Reports of good early morning Caenis and dry Sedge fishing during the duller days have also been reported this week.
