2nd Trial on Lake OFlynn, Co Roscommon

(July 16, 2011)
7 women enjoyed a lovely day's fishing on Lake O'Flynn - some travelling long distances from Counties Cork, Antrim, Kildare and Clare.(Satnavs do have their uses).    The weather wasn't kind - but it was a great fishing day with all women catching trout.

Plenty of other trout were risen, hooked or lost on the day and even a few perch and pike came to the fly.

Top boatman was Chris Connaughton who boated Maddy and Julie - his boat had 13 fish to the net.

All fish were returned safely to the water after measuring.

After a hard days fishing everyone enjoyed some of Jenny's mum's sponge cake  - so light and fluffy it filled an entire Quality Street tin! Whose turn is it to bake next time?  Thats definitely a tradition worth starting

Let them eat cake!!!!
