I had many plans for the month of May but life got in the way instead.
I mentioned previously that the site was going to take somewhat of a new direction and this is the first step – monthly reports. Why?
After having such fun the previous day I decided to go back for more. The fish had nit yet spawned and I knew there was a chance of a real monster over the next couple of days.
St. Patrick’s Day used to be a three day session but for quite a good few years I have made the point of foregoing the nonsense and getting afloat instead.
I would like to take a couple of minutes out to talk about the widespread flooding that is really taking hold of a few counties in Ireland at the moment.
Getting afloat on a Wednesday seems to be becoming a bit of a habit for me. Conditions looked good and the weather was fine so why not? That was all the encouragement I needed!
Anglers have to be the eternal optimists, I can’t think of any other reason for subjecting ourselves to deplorable weather and temperatures in the hopes of finding a monster.
The spell of good weather continues, it was even nicer today than it was over the weekend. True to form Ireland once again experiences an ‘Indian summer’. So I went fishing!
It is rare that you get a very good forecast for the end of the trout season, the last weekend in September. Off to Lough Mask to see if we could tempt any monster brown trout!
I managed to get out and have another look at the river this weekend, in the hopes that some silver had started moving in. A glorious morning had to capitalised on so I headed into the countryside.
