Dermot Broughan reports that weather conditions have once again been poor for the time of year. However with the temperatures improving slowly we have seen the start of the May Fly hatch…
Over the week we have seen localised hatches of May fly along the Ash Itch and back up to the big pump house.
Andy Boyle and his pal Paddy Isdell were back on the lake during the week. Andy had 4 fish to 2lbs and Paddy boated one of 1½ lbs. John McIntyre, Northern Ireland had 5 fish the best to 3lbs.
The ITFA Leinster Youths was fished on Owel on Saturday. 11 anglers landed 7 fish in difficult conditions.
