Vincent O’Rourke reports:
Summer eased into Autumn and suddenly the weather improved to ideal angling conditions on Sheelin last week. The sedge fishing is still good but seems to be easing back a little. Niall Carpenter from Balbriggan had the best fish of the week just over 4 ½ pounds which he caught on Friday evening just off Wilson’s Point fishing a wet daddy. Niall had three other fish for the week all in the 1.5lbs area.

Peter Boyle from Monaghan had three nice fish up to lunch time on Saturday, the best of which was a 3 lb well coloured fish. The fish were caught on a Muddler fishing off Lynch’s Point.
Two young local lads Conor Harten and Jimmy McEnroe had a nice day trolling on Saturday. They caught lots of good perch and a beautiful Sheelin Brownie of 3 ½ pounds – all of the fish were returned.
