The competition report for The McCracken Cup fished for on Monday the 14th of May. They say never cast a clout till May is out... well I think they were not far wrong as this was a very cold night for the middle of May.  The water started to rise and this suited the worm men and in 1st place was Philip Maguire on the worm he said he could not spin as he had a very sore arm! In 2nd place was Patsy Harkin normally on the fly but opted for the spinner this time, and 3rd place was Andy Glendinning on the fly . Our junior competition The Meet at Regans junior cup was won by John Mckay and in jointed 2nd place was Joseph Spiers and Stephen Ewing. The league table is starting to tighten up at the top and hanging on by 1 point is Barry Diamond on 33 points, myself on 32 points, Philip Maguire moves up to 3rd spot on 30 points and close behind Philip on 28 points is Brian Bigmore and making good progress up the board on 26 points is Patsy Harkin. Our best junior is Joseph Spiers on 22 points  next is John Mckay on 18 points. Our next competition is the Glenview Perpetual Cup on Monday the 28th of May starting at 7.00 pm.

The Moyola angling club traveled to Dunfanaghy last weekend for there annual weekend away, There was not a lot of excitement all weekend other than Philips camper wanting to stay in Dunfanaghy. Some of the more experienced anglers opted for the easy option of Portlake (Brian, Mervyn, Patsy,Philip,Adrian, Francis and wee John) but this failed big mistake lads.To many anglers to mention that draw blanks ok then Sean, Mervyn, Seamus, Tom, Stanlay,Robert,Barry,Francis, wee John, Big Jack,Patsy Mc, Patsy H, John Mc and Philip. Patsy Harkin lost his concentration and 4 maybe 6 points for showing off and lost his only fish of the weekend. Robert Paul is still climbing trees must give him some flies next time out, He is getting to old for that carry on. Last time out Christy Gilmore was seen walking on water but this time another miracle he caught the biggest fish of the weekend, he also said he lost an even bigger one, pull the other one Christy. Barry Diamond lost a bit of ground on the leader board hanging on by a point, should have brought some worms with you Barry. Willie made a bit of ground on the leader board by winning the heaviest bag of fish and 2nd in the heaviest fish, he is now in joint place with Philip.Willie is also bared from sleeping in Philips camper (ever again ) so im told.A big thanks to Bernie and Philip for the great dinner on Saturday evening and to Bernie and Willie and Seamie D for the BBQ on Sunday . Other than the fishing the craic was still great so looking forward to next year already. Tight lines.

I have today checked the NI Planning website and on 19th April the planning application to build a water turbine on the Dunlogan River was approved. The club made written objections, on two occassions, to the erection of the turbine but, despite this, approval has been granted.

Our Away Trips

What do I most look forward too?

Is it?

The views, cuckoos and curlews,
The lakes, mis-takes and backaches,
The rainy skies, white lies and useless flies,
The reviews, woos and abuse,
The puzzled looks when hearing the rules.

No, its

The tub, the scrub, the grub and the pub.
A little guitar and a big jar!

Thanks for the info John. Sounds like a good 6th dropper fly with a wee team of wets and bumbles.
