Long hours pay off in hunt for Ferox


Persistence paid off for two anglers fishing Lough Corrib recently as their hunt to catch a Ferox trout brought them to Lough Corrib. Bill Shanley and Joe Darby spent 14 hours trolling over a couple of days in the northern part of the lake but were rewarded with some fine Ferox. Fishing over deep water using roach as bait, the pair managed three fish weighing 6, 7 and 11 pounds. Trolling can be hard work at the best of times but as Bill said, the beauty and scenery of the lake can make light of a hard days fishing.
