My name is Denis Goulding and i have been Flyfishing for over 30 years. I thought it was about time i started a Blogg on my trips around Ireland and abroad. Those who know me , will know i am a keen angler and i really enjoy the social aspect
of the sport, yes a sport , fishing isnt a hobby.
I hope the weekly bloggs will be of Interest to you, as i fish for trout on various waters, Rivers, Large Resevoirs, the Wild Loughs of Ireland and of course the small stillwaters . I
will try to explain different techniques/ methods that i employ on these waters as the seasons change. And of course the flies i use during these times
Over the years i have fished with some of the best Anglers in the country and made many life
long friends through fishing.
Reading some Introductories on Bloggs, they tell you how many times they are capped for their country, all the different countries they have fished in, different competitions they have won , the numerous pro-teams
they are involved with and the huge trout they have caught during their fishing careers. We have all done or are doing lots of these things, but i will let this season speak for itself and see if the Blogg is of any interest to you all. I will give it a year
and we will see what happens
So Tight lines to you all in 2017 and stay tuned

Lough Owel Trout Preservation Association Club run a great fishery , i would encourage all anglers fishing the lake to join the club, if the local clubs do not get the support , Lakes like Lough Owel will no longer exist .
You also need a IFI permit to fish the lake and the bag limit is 2 trout.
Lough Owel will fish all year round and is fast becoming a go to destination for anglers all over Ireland. Waters like Rutland , Grafham and Chew produce exactly the same browns Lough Owel does. Fish to double figures are not unheard of on these waters in the UK and they attract anglers from all over the UK, International Anglers and Irish Anglers and we have Lough Owel on our doorstep,. It just makes you think. Triploids are really doing great in the lake, it makes you think what the future holds and yes there are grown on Double Figured Trout in Lough Owel. I personally will be fishing aLough Owel a lot more next year.
