Joe Fitzharris reports on some excellent fishing on Lake O’Flynn. The club recently hosted the Annual Donnellan Cup on Sunday 7th of June. Fishing was excellent for this event and as the weather warms the prospects for trout fishing on this water are good. Conditions were average on the day but anglers reported rising good numbers of fish. The trout were caught on a variety of patterns which included Dabblers, Muddlers, Sedges and Humungus flies.
