Guide Michael Flanagan reports from the Midlands:
Lough Lene Anglers hosted the Larry Mulligan Cup last Friday night and there was huge turn out of fifty eight anglers lashing flies out across Lene. On the night Aidan Heffernan had a cracking trout of 2.36kg, 2nd place went two Noel Shield with another fine fish of 2.00kg and 3rd was Darren Whitehead with 1.98kg.
The top junior angler was Macauley Fox with a lovely trout of 1.34kg. Presentation took place at Fagan’s Point and Barry Mulligan son of the late Larry presented Aidan with the Larry Mulligan Cup. The next trout competition on Lene is the Mick Healy Cup, and this evening competition will be fished on August 5th. More on this in the coming weeks.
Pleasure anglers are also enjoying good fishing on Lene and recently Stan Ryan and pal Justin Gordon rattled the nets with super rainbow trout on the troll. Stan had a very unusual looking lure, and the Lene trout certainly took a shine to it. There is also a few nice pike being caught on Lene and Mark Grace was in the thick of the action with Barry Gordon.
