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

Ben on the engine as we motor down the lake. Notice how flat the water is, very poor conditions for fishing Beltra.

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.

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.
