Evening fishing on the River Liffey around Clane area is somewhat slow at  present as the hatches of sedges are sparse.

There is a reasonable hatch of Blue Winged Olives and a fall of Sherry Spinners in the late evening but it is localised.

The recent rainfall will put a small but much needed rise and a slight colour in the water which should improve day time as well as the evening fishing.

The New Zealand style will probably  work best in the afternoon with the dry fly being the best method for late evening.
