Angling Guide Michael Flanagan reports from the Royal Canal:
The Royal Canal is in great shape and quite a number of fish are moving through the system. Now that the water temperature has dropped the shoal fish are moving into deep stretches of the Royal Canal, and naturally the predator fish are tailing behind the food chain. Last Sunday our lakes were a no go area with high winds, and anglers took shelter on the Royal Canal.Wicklow Vet Jim Walsh dropped down to Mullingar with Harm Jan Kreun of Utrecht in Holland, and they had a few lively hours fishing the Royal Canal. It was Harms first time to fish in Ireland, and we had hoped to hit Ree, but the Gale force winds knock this plan on the head. Harm who is a computer software expert will be back in Ireland in 2016,and plans are in place for a trip on our bigger Lakes.
