The hot water stretch at Lanesborough is producing some nice fishing at the moment. Conor King Lowry was in touch to say that there are some lovely hybrids in the stretch at the minute, along with the very odd small bream. Some beautiful Rudd have also been showing up, while the stretch has plenty of pike with three 20s landed in the past week, with the biggest being a 24+. There have been 5 or 6 tench landed so far so things are slowly picking up, with the best of the fishing still to come.

Conor sent on a photo of a fine roach he caught trotting a stick float with two red maggots, part of a lovely bag of quality Roach he had. The fish weighed 2lbs 2oz – a cracking roach indeed!
