Mick ‘the Fish’ Flanagan of Midland Angling and Shooting has been out on Derravaragh with old pal Mick McShane. The pair haven’t fished together for a couple of years because of Covid, so both Micks were delighted to get out on the water and catch up, as well as catch pike and perch.

The weather was mixed, with heavy showers and gusty winds making it choppy at times, but perseverance paid off and they both got some good fishing on deadbaits and the troll in the few hours they were out.
