Lough Sheelin

Hello All

I am heading to Sheelin for the second week in May. What flies do I need? What are good areas of the lake to fish? Any other tips?

tks

Tommy

Well, seeing that nobody has answered you, Tommy, I'll give it a go, but I am no expert. I have fished Sheelin a few times. It's a bloody hard lake to catch fish, except for "duffer's fortnight" in the Mayfly season.

you can subscribe to the weekly fishing report here:http://fishinginireland.info/news/su...ngling-update/. This will keep you abreast of reports from around the country, including Sheelin.

There is good information about Sheelin here: http://www.fishinginireland.info/tro...on/sheelin.htm

You need a permit to fish the lake, which you can buy online: https://shop.fishinginireland.info/i...ndex&cPath=3_4

(Hope all those links work).

Best of luck.

Also, there is a downloadable pdf file here: https://www.fishinginireland.info/trout/index.htm, but the link is not working for me. It may work for you. I think it's a map of the lake.
