Sunday, 21/08/2011 Lough Meenaguse

At the foot of Croagh Gorm, the Blue Stack Mountains, there is a little horseshoe shaped lake, called Meenaguse.  It grows over pretty much and is, particularly at this time of year difficult to fish.  I try anyway.


Saturday, 20/08/2011 The “Lake of the Mountain”

That is Lough Atlieve in the Blue Stacks.  I know that the lake has good fish, but have never caught one.  Today everything seems to be right.  Westerly winds, a nice breeze and an angler with a stealthy approach.

Wednesday, 17/08/2011 St. John’s Point Weather

On days like this there is nothing better to do than taking a little trip to St. John’s Point.  To have a look at the many views and to try for a few mackerel.  There is no better place for that in the whole wide world.

Monday, 15/08/2011 Water in the Owenea

Ray, Otmar and me are off to the Owenea.  There was a lot of rain last night and all the rivers look good, and there are a good few fish in them too.

Thursday, 11/08/2011 Here comes the rain again

After a day and a night of heavy rain there is lots of water in all the Donegal Rivers.  Ray and me try the Upper Eany at Drumboarty.  In the past we had good results up here, particularly in August and September. ...
