Straight to the Sea Trout department. Mr. Michael Smith of the UK and his Son Sean caught 1 Sea Trout, while fishing with their Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of Dr. Ernie Smith of Cookstown, Co Tyrone, fishing with his Gillie Mr. Michael O’Sullivan of caught 3 Juniors to his rod. I always say my noble anglers have good excuses for not catching many fish, and today is no exception, their excuse is there was little to no wind, you could say the only wind was coming from the anglers themselves.  
Now to the complaints department from a concerned Angler, called Mark and I quote, How sad to see so many large hen Sea trout killed in your report would it not have served the Lough better for these fish at this time of year to have been returned with their many thousands of eggs and it would  still  have allowed publicity for the angler and their gillie but would also be sending out a positive message to the wider angling population. I know you have to report on it I saw the same on Sheelin a few years ago but they got their act together. To catch one of those would be enough for any angler. We have big sea trout in a stream near us and I was involved with the club and know how many good eggs a big hen can carry we banned killing any above five pounds to enhance the river. You cannot tell people what to do but they can be encouraged with a little education we found that, thanks again for replying.
