A successful Opening Day

We had an enjoyable day on Sunday. The wind was a bit cold and quite blustery, but we still managed a few fish each. A lot of fish were coming short and turning away, and quite a few more were failing to hook up properly for some unknown reason...It may have been my striking was a little off or rusty, but other fish were well hooked so I don't think this was the reason.
It may have been due to the number of boats out trolling rather than fly-fishing, all that motoring often upsets the fish and makes them edgy.
It is to get very cold again this week, so I don't think I'll be out again for a few days.

Opening Day, Mark 2

I didn't go to the west for the opening of the season, the weather prior to the 15th of February was not condusive to good fishing. Therefore my first day out will be tommorrow, March 1st, now that the season has opened locally. I am starting of by fishing Lough Lene near Collinstown in Westmeath. This beautiful little lough is a stocked fishery with both brown and rainbow trout in it and is a pleasant lake to fish and with it being small enough to motor all around it in one day it is easy to find feeding fish somewhere.

It is always nice to start off with a successful days fishing.
