David Tantrum of Waterford City and County Trout Angling Association tells us that if you are feeling house bound with the stormy weather, you should think of heading to Knockaderry next weekend to shake off the cobwebs.  He informs us that  they still have room for more competitors in the Knockaderry Cup this holiday weekend.    The gales made the fishing difficult last weekend but Ray Brett caught this good-looking Rainbow on a damsel nymph and he also released a brown of around 5 lbs.  David says the fish had a better smile than Ray.  But Hazel the dog shows the way and Ray gets the hang of it !  good man Ray, great smile and great fish !!

Fish smiles…


Dog smiles…

Carrigavantry – This 30 acre reservoir is hidden in the hills behind Tramore. The lake can be fished from the dam and road and the rest of the lake shore needs waders. The deepest part is the island at 10 feet.Prolific hatches of lake olives and damsels occur. Stocking is with both browns and rainbows. You could loose your catch here to a 20lb Pike!

Knockaderry – The deepest part of the lake is 24 feet at the dam tower, the average depth is 6ft and this results in good weed growth. Trout fatten fast in this fertile water on caddis, snails and stickle backs, while lake olives,buzzers sedges and damsels bring on prolific rises. This 80 acre reservoir is a traditional top of the water drift fishery.

New members are welcome and an active programme of fly tuition is pursued to encourage beginners and get our youth out into the countryside.
