Competition report for 10th of May. The McCracken Cup was our first evening competition which was fished in very cold condition for this time of year, with bait fishing being in favour over fly fishing, things should  warm up a bit before our next competition on the 24th of May -7 00pm start.
18 seniors and 4 junior took part on Monday, 1st place went to Philip Maguire bait fishing ,in 2nd place was Brian Bigmore bait fishing, and 3rd was Stanley Aspinall on the fly. Philip jumps to the top of the leader board on 32 points,Stanley and myself are on 30 points, and Joey in 4th place on 28 points.Will see you all on the 24th, Tight lines.

Can anyone recommend any spots around Castledawson for bait fishing as a few of us are heading that direction for the first time this weekend?
last monday nights competition was won by philip maguire who had two good trout with his first worm just below the bridge in Castledawson. There's plenty of trout right along this stretch. give the pool at the disabled stands a throw as well, you'll find it down below the bridge.

Its hard to get a trout at the minute on the fly. its still cold in the evenings and the fish will probably be lying deep.
if you can get down to them with a gold head or tungsten head hares ear nymph you'll have a better chance.
Other good all year round flies are the "iron blue dun", "greenwells glory" and a "black pennell."
Hope this Helps.

Kevin haven't got a clue about the black heads, sorry
