Not a post really, just some photos I took when fishing Lough Beltra yesterday. It was the annual Glenisland Co-op competition and although we did not meet any fish it was a great day out for all.

The new harbour beside the Boathouse is a great facility. The committee has worked tirelessly to improve the whole fishery
Pulling out of the mouth of the river at the start of the day
Ben on the engine as we motor down the lake. Notice how flat the water is, very poor conditions for fishing Beltra.
Looking back towards the new boathouse which was officially opened by Enda Kenny this weekend

The Golden Olive Shrimp is always worth a try on Lough Beltra
We pulled in for a break
The hut is a great job on days when the rain comes down. Matt Higgins and Matt Fahy were there when we pitched up so we had the craik with the lads.
Boats in the harbour. Visitors are always welcome and the club hires out boats and engines.
Back out on the lake again we fished hard in improving conditions but without success

Back to the harbour at 3pm for a bite to eat and see how the other boats faired out

Here’s Jackie Deffley, one of the stalwarts of the club
Jimmy Heneghen was there too.
I guess this sums up the Glenisland Co-op, a well run club with it’s root in the local community. Every day on Lough Beltra is an unforgettable experience.
