Islandderry To Run All Night Fly Fishing Competition

BOTH lakes at Islandderry Fishery, Dromore, are fishing well with a selection of flies catching including Buzzers, Orange Blobs and Nymphs.

10-year old Mark Neilly, Portadown, netted 5 trout on the Hollow Springs Lake on Saturday using Nymphs and hooking into two fish on the one cast.  Mark managed to land both fish, with a little help from Dad Darrell.
