Ronan Cusack reports on an upswing in fishing on Lough Mask:
Mask continues to fish well over the past week with some excellent catches reported. Good olive hatches plus the odd mayfly have also begun to appear in some of the usual hotspots. Wetfly fishing along the shallows is still the most productive method.
Denis Kelleher and Phil Brooks had an enjoyable day over the weekend with 6 trout over the limit plus several undersize (best fish 2lbs, all returned). Tom and Neil Foley had 4 trout on Sunday and again numerous undersize on wets. Tom Doc Sullivan had a lively day on Mask last week landing 5 fish to 2lbs on wets. Ronan Cusack and Tim Hannon had a good evening on buzzer earlier this week with 6 fish up to 2.25lbs (all returned)
Fly hatches on Mask are just beginning to take off so pack your bags and head west.
