Luke O’Connell reports
Things started to taper off somewhat at Ballisodare, with plenty of fish still about but proving hard to catch. However, a total of 116 fish were caught over the past two weeks with 46 of these released.
The most productive method was the worm taking some sixty fish, fifty fish were caught on the fly (most released) and only 6 were landed on the prawn.
Visiting Angler, Neville Aston, had a fine 11 lbs. fish on the worm at the Falls on Tuesday July 19th. On the same day, visiting French angler, Willie Marti, caught two nice fish of 7 lbs. and 5 lbs. on the prawn. On Monday 25th July, JJ Sullivan had a 6 lbs. fish on the fly at the Falls plus several more takes and hook ups. Albert Berry caught a brace of fish around the 5 lbs. mark also.
Most of the fish are averaging between 4 lbs. and 5 lbs. and the worm offers the best chance of catching at Ballisodare at the moment.
