Early Days

Lough Corrib Fly Fishing received it's first guests last week and even though the weather in the main has stayed cold I'm pleased to say they all caught fish while staying at The Fishing Lodge. Frank who came over from Germany enjoyed his first experience of Lough Corrib and Fly Fishing. On his first day he mainly used spinners on the lake which didn't produce any fish but after some fly casting tuition with Paul he fished buzzers and he caught his first ever wild brown trout on a size 12 black buzzer. Mags and Tony had 3 fish on the buzzer with the best fish of 4lb 2oz caught by Maggie on a crisp packet buzzer. Fish are starting to rise and almost like they were celebrating St Patricks day began popping up in the bay in front of the Fishing Lodge.
The fly life hasn't started in earnest but it's encouraging to see fish being caught so early on duck fly imitations. Hopefully when the weather starts to warm in the next couple of weeks we should start to see some great sport (as I write this there are a few flakes of snow falling!)
Hurry up April/May........
