Greg Latour of Tir na Spideog reports on the pike fishing at Lough Allua…
01 October: The final Macroom Pike Anglers Club competition of the year was fished yesterday on Lough Allua. There were 20 anglers fishing from 7 boats and the longest pike caught measured 93 cm. I caught the 2nd biggest pike measuring 92 cm and it was worth a bottle of Whiskey.
In the previous Macroom Pike Anglers competition, fished on 24 September, the longest fish measured 102cm. The 2nd longest was caught by my boat mate Brian Granville who caught his 93 cm pike on a mackerel.

Tir na Spideoga Fishing Lodge is situated on the shores of Lough Allua, about 5km from Inchigeelagh Village, overlooking a narrow but long water system, also called the ‘ Inchigeelagh lakes’. Lough Allua ranks amongst the top pike fishing waters of Ireland, regularly producing pike of 20 and 30 lbs. and still it is one of the least known pike venues on the island .
A guided day on the lake for 2 anglers costs as little as €80 – plus €40 for the boat hire. No permit is required
