A blistering hot day on Tuesday 18th August did not thankfully deter all species of fish from feeding on Lough Ramor in Co Cavan but only the tough guys were out in the midday sun. Water was very clear and temperatures hit the low 20’s. Despite efforts to attract hybrids and roach it was mainly perch that made up the catch at the Coronagh wood stretch. When landing one of the larger fish I was surprised to see a cloud of dozens of white maggots appear from his mouth as he neared the net. This was because I had  not fed white maggot and obviously this fish had been availing of some other anglers hospitality. As the light faded it was expected that the more shy fish would appear but unfortunately, not on this occasion. That being said the perch provided an interesting session on this great water. Feeder tactics with light feeding and red and white maggot worked well.
