Emy and District Anglers in Co Monaghan have stocked Emy Lough last week with over 2000 (2lb plus) brown trout. Prior to the stocking, since March a number of good trout have been netted, the largest which weighed in at 4lb. In addition to this a number at 2-3 lb have also been landed. On separate evenings last week, Emy club PRO Enda Fields took two brownies to 2lb. Both were taken on the Duck Fly.
