Lough Corrib

Duckfly hatches are going well on Corrib at the moment, and most anglers are reporting trout every day they are out. Frank Reilly reports good hatches in the Greenfields area, with some early olives and even some premature mayfly fluttering about too. 14 anglers reported 20 trout for low fishing effort, with retired fisheries inspector Pat Day landing 3 trout in one evening on fly. Sean Dixon took 2 fish on a Sooty Olive, while Pappy Cotter and a friend landed 6 trout for a day on wetfly patterns. Frank himself was out for 3 short sessions over the week and landed 7 trout on wetfly.
