Lough Corrib Lough Corrib

Lough Corrib is located in Galway, the west of Ireland. The River Corrib or Galway river connects the lake to the sea at Galway. It is the largest lake in the Republic of Ireland and second largest on the island of Ireland (after Lough Neagh). It covers 176 km² and lies mostly in County Galway with a small area of its northeast corner in County Mayo.

The first canal on the island of Ireland was cut in the 12th century. Known as the Friar's Cut, it allowed boats to pass from Lough Corrib to the sea at Galway.

Lough Corrib was designated a Ramsar site on 16 June 1996. It has also been designated a Special Area of Conservation.

The fly collection in this section contains just some of the patterns that are succesful on Lough Corrib  throughout the fishing year..We will be updating this section with more information on the lake and the flies used there as we go through the 2018 season.

Grey Buzzer (Moss)

Anyone who has read Dennis's book “Trout From A Boat” will realise how particular the author is in his choice of body colours and correct fly proportion. This range, which reflects these important properties, covers all the essential patterns needed for fishing Corrib and Mask. Dennis's favourite early season wet fly patterns are included along with nymphs, buzzer patterns, wet and dry olives, mayfly and sedges. This is a must have range for the serious Lough fisherman who fish the wild Irish Loughs. However, the patterns will prove invaluable on any lake or reservoir where similar fly hatches occur.

Corrib Olive Stimulator

Stimulators were originally designed by the great American Fly dresser Randall Kaufmann. They were tied and fished to represent many different aspects of the trout's diet from hatching sedges to fry imitations. My range of stimulator patterns tied with bodies of Traditional Irish Dubbing are patterns that can be fished right through the fishing season. Tied with wings of deer hair and top quality cock hackles, their buoyancy and mobility make them ideal for traditional lough style �top of the water� fishing. The Claret, Black and Sooty Olive are great early season patterns and are also proven sea trout favourites. The Green, Corrib Olive and Yellow are successful from April onwards and have become extremely popular during the Mayfly season. The Fiery Brown pattern is a useful end of season sedge imitation.
