Lough na Leibe is continuing to fish very well with good catches reported by anglers, with a total of 52 trout reported by six anglers for the week.  Bernard McDermott caught 6 trout on Thursday 15th and 11 trout on Friday the 16th all on secret flies which can’t be revealed this close to a competition ha-ha- ha. Dave Cadman and a friend also caught 8 trout between them on Friday. Francis Brady fishing with his nephew Oisin Fished the Lough on Sunday the 18th and was rewarded with a stunning total of 22 trout, in less than 3 hrs of fishing and Oisin caught one trout whilst spinning. Francis reported there was a large number of fish feeding steadily for a prolonged time in the surface layer of the water.  The action on Sunday was attributed to a substantial hatch of duckfly at the northern end of the lake.  As always if you have a catch to report please e-mail it to the Club email address available on the Club website. Successful fly patterns included the small midge patterns, small nymph patterns, buzzer patterns and emerging duckfly patterns, retrieved using a very slow figure of eight or fished static.
