Lough Sheelin (Loch Síodh Linn meaning “lake of the fairy pool”)
There is certainly something in angling that tends to produce a serenity of the mind. ~Washington Irving
Brian McAvinney caught a cracking 6.5lb trout from Lough Sheelin last week. Brian’s fish was caught on a minkie.

It won’t work if you aren’t wearing it…
Water rarely gives second chances and a life jacket is just that – it saves your life, so we would implore anglers and all other users for their own safety as well as it being the law under
SI No 921 of 2005 – Pleasure Craft (Personal Flotation Devices and Operation) (Safety) Regulations 2005
