Quite a few anglers are Out & About on Lene and some lovely brown and rainbow trout are feeding hard on the surface. It’s strange but we don’t really see May Fly on Lane till late June, but at the moment there are good hatches of Buzzers and Olives keeping the trout surface feeding. I met Andy Young and Eugene Fagan of Dublin on Lene last weekend and they were having a great day out, catching many fish on dry fly. Eugene is originally from the Multyfarnham area so many readers know him quite well. The ponytail taxi driver with a Jumper full of Flies, great character.
