Paddy Dunworth of Celtic Angling reports on a recent trip on the Maigue…
Geoff Ormiston from Washington State visited Limerick for the World Lacrosse Championships at UL but took time out to fish with me on the Maigue. The river was almost back to normal levels following the freak weather we had experienced, refreshed and with more pace.
We hit a fall of mating gnat which had the trout very active, and though Geoff would not be overly experienced with the upstream advanced fly-fishing approach, he acquitted himself admirably as my photos prove.
Geoff was blown away by Ireland and it’s natural beauty and will no doubt spread the word.
All fish released as usual.
