Kevin O’Boyle reports from Loughs Conn & Cullin

Loughs Conn and Cullin opened on 15th February and Lough Conn saw a few anglers braving the elements on the first day where 15 trout were recorded as being caught. Southwesterly winds got some trout moving and roughly 12 anglers ventured out the lake. Stephen Browne had four trout all keepers, the best weighing 1.2 lbs and lost one more, all off the Brackwansha Shore. Peter Roche had one trout weighing 1.5 lbs in Cloghan’s Bay as had Gary Binley with a keeper over 1 lb. Successful flies on the day included Bibio, Fiery Brown & Dabbler.
