The boat fly fishing at Corbet Lough commences on Monday 1 April 2019. The Club has again held the cost of boat hire for the 2019 season at just £3.00 per hour for the boat, electric engine, battery and life jackets. This is tremendous value at just £1.50 per hour for the boat sharing angler. The Corbet Lough has been fishing very well since the start of the season with a number of anglers catching fish of 3lbs and better. The best reported fish has been a great Rainbow of 3lbs 8ozs taken on the fly by Leonard Ervine on 17 March. As the Lough is fishing so well the boats are likely to be in big demand. It is suggested that anglers wishing to book a boat should contact the Boat Attendants’ Office on 028 4062 5039 or 075 9102 7557 in advance to avoid disappontment. The more occasional angler and the visiting angler can also purchase Day Tickets for Corbet Lough and the Club’s stretch of the River Bann from the Boat Attendants Office. You can purchase an exclusive range of merchandise at the Boat Attendants’ Office. The Club’s Polo Shirts with the Club’s logo on the chest and sleeve retail at just £16. The Club’s Baseball Caps with the Club’s logo sell at only £8. The Club’s enamel badges showing the Club’s logo set in a smart silver casing with a safety pin catch cost just £3.50 each or £10 for three badges. These badges are real collector’s items. All the proceeds from these items support the Club’s fishing activities. You can also purchase a limited range of confectionary and soft drinks from the Boat Attendants’ Office. More substantial refreshments can be purchased from the nearby Anglers Rest. If you want to get some online experience of the Corbet’s boat fishing local angler John Johnston has uploaded a couple of short video clips onto Youtube. There is one of John and his neice Imogen Johnston hooking, fighting and netting big Rainbows at Corbet Lough in April 2017 and a second video clip of John and Henry McKnight enjoying some great boat fishing during the 2018 season.
