The Mayfly has finally begun to make an appearance on Lough Arrow, with ever increasing numbers sported over recent days. It is hoped this trend will continue and anglers can look forward to some exciting dry fly fishing in coming weeks. Among those to report catches in recent days was John Twomey, who had three trout ranging from 1.25lbs to 2lbs. Visiting French angler to the area Cedric Ducouret, landed one of 1.25lbs, taken on the dap while Yvonne Frazer also had one on the dap, weighing 1.5lbs. Finally Simon Steele reported one of 2lbs taken on a Gray Wulff.
