Pauric McGeraty reports that the action is non-stop in Cavan with some great catches for anglers staying at Carafin Lodge. Garett and Cecil both broke their personal best on Friday 3rd May at Carafin Lodge. Garett had bream to 8lbs and Cecil had tench to 5lbs and there were also some lovely hybrids and roach caught. With all of the recent angling there has been lots of bait going in so the fish are well on the feed even in tough conditions.

Pauric also had Jock, Alan, Cameron and Jack at Carafin Lodge recently and although the fishing was hard at times but they stuck to it, and had a fabulous catch in the end.
