A wonderful brown trout, caught by Mick Fleming from Dublin, on his first outing for pike on Lough Erne. It was as caught on a rubber perch lure trolled behind the boat. This fish was returned to water as it’s out of trout fishing season but shows you what’s out there – caught just off Trannish Island, opposite our holiday cottages.

Paul Piton and his friends visit us from France every year to fish (very successfully) for pike. We can offer up to three 17ft fishing boats for hire and guest staying in accommodation with us can utilise the marina to fish from.
