John from Wexford with some nice Tench.
Fishing in and around Strokestown and the Longford area has been very good, the last few weeks has not seen large weights but it has produced some good specimen Tench and Bream and some big Hybrids. Still the early mornings and late evenings on prebaited swims are producing the best results, Bream and Tench to 5lb. and Hybrids to 3lb. have featured in most catches. Both feeder and float have produced however the feeder has proved to be the best tactic, baits once again consist of various cocktails which include maggots, Corn, Worm, Caster. The weather has been consistent for the last week and the overcast but warm climate is welcome, we will see what the rest of the week and the weekend has install for us.
