Four seasons in one day on Sheelin, but rewards come to those that endure

4111

Luke Drea & Jack Rodgers fished Lough Sheelin on Monday and found the weather to be ‘mixed’ to say the least. They began fishing the Crover shore, but with a strong wind whipping the water, that part of the lake started to dirty, making fishing tricky.

They considered their options over lunch, and suitably refreshed, they braved wind, wave and rain to head over to the lee shore in the shelter of Ross Castle. No sooner than they arrived than it started pelting hail to add to the general discomfort…

But their fortunes changed just as the hail abated when a decent trout grabbed Luke’s Humongous and he managed to manoeuvre it to the net, bringing a bit of sunshine to an otherwise tough day. The fish was quickly released and Luke managed to rise another fish shortly later that didn’t stick. So, a typical Sheelin day in April, tough conditions and hard fishing, but the reward is all the better when it comes…

Please fish in a sustainable manner
