It’s hard to believe that we are already 7 days into the new fishing season. Personally I love February fishing when only the brave of heart venture out, (that or either they are all totally mad).There is great anticipation whilst fishing because one is always waiting and hoping.
As of yet we have no fish caught so for all of you reading this there is still the chance of landing the first of the year.
Fishing pressure so far has been relatively light. We had nice water the first day with some very serious anglers in Peter Mantle, Mark Helmore, Ash Mathews and Fergus Granville for a couple of hours but they failed to stir anything. In fairness it was bitterly cold and water temp. was low.
The river then got quite low until Saturday when we had a fresh and two experienced anglers in Conor O’Leary and John Brennan but they failed to score.
Yesterday water was 30 and it was a beautiful day for fishing. Added to this local veteran Sheamus Heneghan fished most of the day to no avail. He did however manage to rise a fish that he reckoned was fresh in the Horseshoe on his Bedger tube.
