Mayfly and sedges on the menu for Sheelin trout

1922

The mayfly season is drawing to a close on Lough Sheelin, but Chris Oliver reports that there are still a few fish moving to them. He was on a drift just outside Chambers Bay when he saw a few fish moving to spent and duns. He managed to tempt one of them with a Green Wulff.

Fine fish caught on a Green Wulff

He was back on the water the following day, and while there were some mayfly still about, there seemed to be more sedge activity on the water. He noticed a fish move well down his drift, and a couple of strokes on the oar got him on the right line. He flicked his sedge out, and the wait began… Luckily, the fish stayed on course, and Chris was happy to see his sedge disappear to a good rise.
