Photo: Cathy got the best fish of the two days estimated at around 15lbs

Brian Coughlan and wife Cathy were out fishing on Lough Derg last week. We rented a Boat from Fisherman’s Paradise and had Richard Mc Dermot as a guide for one of the two days we fished.

Cathy got the best fish of the two days estimated at around 15lbs, this is her first pike. She caught it on a cast 30g Abu Toby. It put up a great fight and as you can see she was delighted.

Overall, For the two days we managed 14 fish, 8 to cast spinners and 6 to the fly rod. The best fish to the fly rod was just less than 8lbs. The killer fly’s were EP fibre white and green deceivers tied on size 4 Ad Swier hooks.

Some much larger Pike were moved, hooked and lost on the fly rod around Lushag Rocks. Two of the White Tailed Sea Eagles were also seen on the second morning.
