Angling guide and journalist Mick Flanagan reports on Trout fishing in the midlands area:
Lough Owel is drawing anglers from near and far as we drift into Mid September. I believe the Meath Topic has our Angling Focus featured, is drifting around the canteen at Intel in Leixlip.Last weekend Matthias Maas was over from Germany doing some work at Intel, and decided to check out he angling in Westmeath. On the day Matthias caught a few lovely trout on Owel fly-fishing, and done a few hours trolling, which produced huge perch.
Quite a few local anglers were also out over the weekend, and had cracking sport on the fly. This coming Saturday Lough Owel a National qualifier, and many anglers will be Out & About on Owel this week practicing. Last week we covered the Clonhugh Cup but had no room for some of the presentation photographs. All going well a few will appear this week.
Also on Owel were Henk Heiligers and son Stefan are staying with Kevin Lyons of Melview Lodge Longford. The lads are from Hellevoetsluis in the Netherlands, and were on Owel last week. We did some long drifts out from Portloman and managed a few nice trout on wet fly
