Mick ‘the Fish’ Flanagan didn’t let an alphabet of storms prevent him from getting a fishy fix this week in the midlands. Mick grew up with the Royal Canal at the front of his house and the River Brosna out the back, so he never had too far to go in search of a pike or a perch. While the half of the country was on red alert with storm Eunice last weekend, Mick took a stroll along the Royal Canal where there was a yellow warning for jack pike – in the form of Mick’s yellow and green paddletail. Mick loves the colour yellow for pike and he had had two decent canal jack’s in the space of an hour before taking the short walk home again.

Mick has been writing articles about his fishing for twenty years now and while the poor recent weather kept him off the loughs, he has been going through some of his old photos and memories – you can see some of them on his Facebook page.

The old photos will be going back in the box next week though, as March 1st will see the start of the trout season in the midlands and Mick will be busy…..
