Michael Flanagan was on Ennell where the trout were taking flies well last week

Earlier in the week before the Hot spell returned some nice trout came off Ennell on the fly. Johnny O’Malley had a super few days and produced 3 Ennell crackers for 12lbs in weight. I also met Paddy Whitelaw as he came off Ennell, and he also boated a fine fish of 3lbs. Its not easy going on Ennell, and Paddy has put a lot of fishing hours into Ennell, to catch a few fish.

Paddy Whitelaw still reeling then in on Ennell.
