Everyone's been a bit quiet (****, Nath, 2K). Heard the occasional bit on here about it being a struggle because of the weather, but did things get any better as the week went on? Any fish to report?

struggle ain't the word for it m8.

2 fish, 1 7lb by Cian and 1 of around 4.5lb by Kev.

Both on bait, both worked hard for.

I lost a good fish, very lightly hooked in heavy current.

On lures, I had 3 takes in around 14 solid hours of fishing, Kev 1 take and Nathan 1 follow I believe on a sliding
topwater.

Don't need excuses, no one could have worked any harder.

Totally blown out, cold and filthy conditions. 6" vis tops.

wowzers - very tough going - in some ways (this sounds bit odd) but it is reassuring to know that Ireland has similar issues with big SW winds hitting the coast as we do in Sussex with coloured water ... and hence the same challenges are present; Its not easy fishing but when its good its good!

I will never again say the water gets dirty around here! Even the Irish lads said they have never known it to be that dirty. Everything went wrong really, it was hard work. It went a bit like this;

Pat, our guide, contracts swine flu the day we arrive.
The first day the wind and raid were aweful, force 7 and driving rain and bitterly cold.
Day two the rain had stopped but the water had gone a real nescafe coffee colour, this is the day Keith and Nathan had hits but no fish landed, we tried for 8 hours without stopping.
Day three, our last day, we decided to get some pike fishing gear and try some fresh water. Get the gear, find the local lake, gear on, set up, raring to go, walk to lake, grounds keeper comes out of his hut and says "Sorry boys, but we electro netted all the fish out of here a year ago".
That evening Nath and me admitted defete, but K&K took some peelers from Cian (Pats mate) and went for one last go but with bait, and Kev managed his 4lb'er.

****,

First, change that bloody photo, you look a knob. :lol:

Second, Pat had a cold and stayed in, he would not be seen with you looking like that. :lol:

Third, If I was a grounds keeper and I walked out of my hut and seen a face like yours I would have told lies and said the lake was netted last year. :lol:

And lastly, Nath probably had a bad stomach from laughing so much for the three days and K & K just wanted to catch a BASS on my favourite bait !!!

Only joking !!!
Regards !

I know the Henry and a few others are out in Ireland this week and scanning the "other" forum they are finding it just as hard ... :/
There's also an update on Henry's Blog, confirming how tough they are finding it.
