Return to Lough Beagh

Lough Beagh, in the wilds of northern Donegal, is one of the most majestic waters I've ever fished for white-trout. I fished it first in 2009 and enjoyed a grand day; two return visits last week provided good fishing, though on the second of the two return days the weather was unspeakable, the lough rising and the fishing accordingly tough. As well as sea-trout and occasional salmon, the lough also holds a staggering head of wild brown trout, the vast majority of them running two or three (or four) to the pound but with odd larger fish. Further information may be found on http://www.fishinginireland.info/salmon/north/lackagh.htm Below you'll find some images of the first of our return days.

The sandy bay at the head of the lough is a good mark, though it needs quiet, careful approach work and equally careful fishing. Beautiful spot - and a lovely place to take lunch.
