Photographer's Note

Hi Guys,

Another weekend out in the fields just enjoying the weather and good light. Same as usual I went with Mariusz (mkamionka) to Sligo this time...

This lovely lough, south-east of Benbulben, is approximately 2 miles long by ½ mile wide. Situated in a deep valley to the north of the N16 Manorhamilton-Sligo road, 5 miles from Sligo, it has a spectacular waterfall at its north-east corner. The lough has a resident stock of small brown trout and gets a really good run of seatrout and a fair number of salmon, both spring fish and grilse (by Wikipedia of course - I wouldn't know such stuff!!)

The southern shore is deep, the northern shore shallow and shelving. The latter shoreline, the western shore, and the eastern end of the lough are favourite fishing areas. This lough fishes best in a west or south-west wind. This lough, lying in the shadow of famed Benbulben, with its wooded shoreline, waterfall and islands at either end, is well worth a visit.
