BAC Evening Rise at Corbet Lough

The month has started with a prolonged period of very hot, bright and dry weather which is not conducive with good fishing. However the Corbet Lough is continuing to fish very well, particularly in the cool evenings, and there have been reports of some decent rises and some great catches. On Monday 2 July there were three boats out in the evening. Frank Tumelty went deep and he had seven fish to the boat. Jim Warren fished dries and he had four fish to the boat on a dry sedge pattern. On Thursday 5 July Gerard Lyness and Tom King had a great day’s fishing with over twenty fish to the boat. William Cochrane and Stephen Henry, who were out for their weekly boat session, also enjoyed some great sport with ten fish to the boat. In the evening there was a good turn out of anglers at the Corbet fishing from both the boats and the shore. Frank Tumelty and Dan Tumilty had over twenty fish to the boat. David McCreedy and Andy Mitchell also had a great boat session with over ten fish to the boat. A lot of the shore anglers were getting in a bit of practise for a forthcoming competition at the Corbet and they were keeping their cards close to the chest with regard to the successful flies, methods and catches. Councillor Seamus Doyle was pleasure fishing from the shore with his granddaughter and she had caught a nice fish early in the evening. Seamus was naturally delighted and very proud of her. On Saturday 7 July the Club’s competition anglers fished an evening competition at Corbet Lough for the Pyres Cup (Adults) and the Martin Dynes Cup (Juveniles). Although the conditions were challenging there was a great turn out of anglers and there was some excellent bags of fish being weighed in. Trevor Jones won the Pyres Cup with Colin Crothers 2nd and Noel Burns 3rd. Imogen Johnston won the inaugural competition for the Martin Dynes Cup (Juveniles) with a great bag of fish weighing just under 3lbs 8ozs..
