Competition report for The Maguire Cup fished on the 2nd of August. There were 20 seniors and 3 juniors out ,The water was very low after all the rain we had on Friday, there was poor rise of trout all night, Joey ONeill changes from bait to flys and it paid off as he took 1st place again,
Philip Maguire was in 2nd place bait fishing ,
and Stanley Aspinall was in 3rd place.
This brings Joey to just 3 points of Philip and 6 behind Tommy who has 72 points,Stanley is on 58 points, and in 5th place and says he is throwing in the towel and Patsy Harkin on 54 points. The club is of to Fermanagh this weekend for a bit of lake fishing, hopefully Mervyn will catch something,Seamy D is not going to Fermanagh i wonder why.
Our next competition is our Charity competition on the 14th August at 10.00 am and there is a B.B.Q  after this.
Tight lines.

Jungle Cock.

A lot of irish shrimp patterns for salmon incorporate jungle cock cheeks in their tying.
Is jungle cock really necessary in these patterns?

Comeptition Secretary's report or the 5th July.  The Watterson Cup was fished for on Monday night their was a nice bit of water and a the chance of a salmon or dollaghan but nothing turned up!!! Peter o'Neill had a first win this season with a good bag of trout on the fly.  Tommy McGrath took second place for the 5th time on the fly and 3rd place was Phillip Maguire on bait.  Best junior was Jason Bateson who was fly fishing.  The leader board has Tommy McGrath 2 points ahead of Philip Maguire with Joey O'Neill and Stanley Aspinall in 3rd place.  Patsy Harkin drops back abit but still in 5th place.  Patsy needs to take some points from the last 2 evening competitions as lake and autumn fishing does not suit him.  The lakes do not suit Phillip but his style of fishing in the autumn will, however both lake and autumn fishing suits me fine!!! Both Joey and Stanley will be there or there abouts.  Willie who??? Cathy D has more chance of catching a fish than Seamie D has for the rest of the season.  The rest are just playing catch up.  Jason looks good for best junior at this stage.  Our next competition is the TSB Challenge on Monday 19th July 2010 at 7pm at Castledawson bridge.  Tight lines

Had a very memorable evening's fishing recently- secret location and not my usual haunt.Caught 11 wild brownie keepers typically 10-12 inch plus  many smaller fish . The highlight being a trout about 1  & 3/4 pound. Had no weighing scales but measured the fish at 18 inches. This was the best fly caught wild river brown trout for me in years . Took about 3 to 4 minutes to land .  Most trout caught between 10.00 and 12.00 at night.  All on wet fly and returned . At the start of the evening having looked at the river ( very low and no obvious rise) I nearly  went home without fishing. just shows as Tommy would say.... if your fly is not in the water you'll catch no fish.

For anyone interested in checking river levels in scotland look at the SEPA site (Scottish Environment Protection Agency ) under the tab water you will find river levels - then you can see various river levels and details of the base level etc , the base level is defined on the site .
