Boyne Valley Fishing guides have been in touch with some news about Lough Sheelin. The mayfly has finally arrived but hatches are reported to be sporadic in places and the fishing has been described as fairly tough going. Although good catches have been reported from certain areas, overall, it still needs to click up a gear. Peter Cunningham was guiding for local couple Patrick and Sinead on Lough Sheelin over the weekend. It was overcast with some light showers and there was a decent hatch of mayfly. This was Patricks’ first time on Lough Sheelin and as he got to grips with the lake and the conditions he managed to catch his very first Lough Sheelin trout on the fly. A big well done to Patrick!

Elsewhere on the lake John Baker had a number of fine fish with the best weighing in at around 5lbs. If you fancy a days guided fishing with Peter Cunningham or one of his team of guides at Boyne Valley Fishing Guides he can be contacted below
