Mick Flanagan has all the news from Lough Lene…
The Lene trout are really surface feeding, and some cracking brown and rainbow trout are being caught. Pat Brown from Delvin who is Lene Competition captain had some super rainbows, on dry fly, as did our old pal Owen McEnteggart.
Owen ties his own flies, and had a few emergers working well, that caught lovely brown trout best weighing 2lbs 9oz. Val Wynn his angling pal boated a rainbow stuffed with small green snails, no bigger than the head of a match. This time of year these small snails are just below the water surface, and the trout really feed on the snails.
