Some great late evening fishing on Lough Arrow
July 25th, 2012 | by Bryan Ward
Late evening and night fishing has been fruitful for many anglers on Arrow of late, with some good trout surfacing for the Murrough and Peter hatches and some still being taken on mayflies. Terry Wilson boated three, up to 2.5lbs, with Philip Murray and Gerry Martin accounting for two during a session. Those to meet fish with the mayfly included John Stone, with three up to 2lbs, and Kenneth Murray, who had two of 3.5lbs and 4lbs.
Maurice Whiteman had a total of 12 trout over five nights, ranging from 2lbs to 5lbs, while Martin McDaid, Co.Tyrone, had four up to 1.5lbs (all fish returned). Paul McMenamin, Co. Derry, had two of 2lbs and 3lbs for a nights effort, with John Hargadon and Patrick Villa both capturing fish of 4lbs and Paul Mc Fadden landing one of 3lbs. Peter Dunn enjoyed good sport, boating eight trout over four nights, ranging from 3lbs to 5.5lbs. All of these were taken on the Green Peter.
