I fished the pools from the lough down to 4 Masters Bridge and had a half hour on the pool below Lennox Bridge. The only place I saw fish moving was in the slow water. I saw more people fishing worm/prawn than any other methods.
As living up the country now for a few weeks in Sligo, i went for a drive last night to do a bit of fly fishing up at Mullighmore, and came across a sign for Bundoran, so went up, as mates on my course live there and said i should have a peek.
On entering the strip leading to Bundoran, i saw Drowes river sign, I again hadn't thought about google and knew that I would eventually get up to Drowes, but its only a short trip from the house, drove down to where it enters the Ocean and saw the lads fishing the 4 pools, it looked amazing, and I met Billy there..
He asked me to follow him and he would show me the entire system, sound...
I couldn't believe the beauty of this place, and Lough Melvin looked fab, the accommodation was in the perfect setting too, nice and quiet. Great chat with Billy and Im on fro saturday morning, well for 25 Euro to fish it all day and anytime start/finish etc, ill be sure to be doing it at least a few times a month, met up with a Bloke who has visited every year for the last 36 years, he told me the last few days were terrible ( especially when i saw around 6 Grilse right in front of me ) but as the weather is now breaking, it should be good again.
I think when you live outside Ireland for a number of years, you really Appreciate what we actually have in this country, Beautiful
