The Bann at Lenaderg and above Banbridge is yielding good quantities off wild trout and some fine fish have been reported, not least Jason Russell’s 15 inch beauty taken while Czech nymphing.  Increasing hatches of large dark olives are occurring from early morning and fishing last weekend is reported as excellent and forecasts are it will continue as long as the temperatures hold.  Local guide Brian Russell fished the river for a few hours mid day Tuesday and returned over 40 trout to 37cm, most falling to olive dry and nymph patterns.
