Donal Connolly and his wife Connie are enthusiastic anglers with extensive knowledge of Lough Corrib’s vast waters.  They tell us that some good fishing was had over the weekend, with Liam O’Connor, Dublin catching a total of 6 trout and one grilse.  The best trout was 2.25 lb and the grilse was 3 lb, all caught on wetfly, nice 2 fishing!
Liam O’Connor’s fishing partner Will had one trout for 1.25lb on fly while Rob Eyers, Galway had 2 trout on fly, for 4.5 lb (2.5 lb and 2 lb).
Donal himself had 5 trout best was 3 lbs on wet fly.  Gerry and Shane Joyce had 3 grilse for about 13 lb., 12 year old Shane had an epic struggle with a hard fighting fish before he expertly landed him – Donal said he was lucky enough to be fishing close by at the time and very much enjoyed witnessing the battle.
