Numerous hits and follows so a very busy day indeed. Most fish take on Savagear Linetru trout and Spro 6in. BBZ. – TJ’s Angling Centre
Pierre Monjarret and his clients have also been having some great fishing in the last couple of days, including some realy awsome pike to well over 1m.

20 May: What a difference a day makes on Derg. Winds and rain made fishing difficult for Charles and dad Philip on their last day with us. We still managed to get 4 fish for a total of 20 fish over 2 days. Bon voyage guys and we look forward to seeing you again soon. – TJ’sAngling Centre
