Well known fly tyer and expert angler Jimmy Tyrrell was in touch to let us know that he has been out and about again recently on the River Nore and its tributaries. According to Jimmy there was a massive hatch of cinnamon sedge last night that lasted for about fourty minutes and its “the best hatch of fly I have seen in a long time”. I caught plenty of fish around 30cm and there were bigger fish rising everywhere.

I was out with Darra Collins from Limerick on Saturday teaching river craft had a great day a few mayfly showing fished small nymphs during the day caught plenty of fish. There were good hatches of blue winged olives in the evening about ten o’clock again fishing showing everywhere. Darra got some good fish to small dry bwo imitations with a number of fish over 30cm. Conditions are really good for the dry fly at the moment so I will be getting as many outings as I can over the coming weeks.
