Tyrone Lough To Be Revived For Angling

#Angling - Plans are afoot to turn Roughan Lough in Co Tyrone into a training lake for Northern Ireland's angling team, as the Tyrone Times reports.

New fishing stands and access for the differently abled are among the plans of the new Roughan Anging Club, which has a 10-year lease on the 50-acre lake that was until three decades ago stocked by the northern region predecessor to Inland Fisheries Ireland.

Reputed to be full of large pike, its intended that the waters will be stocked with rainbow trout and make it a new destination for anglers across Ireland and beyond.

The Tyrone Times has more on the story HERE.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
