Ballinakill's Gill’s Pond And Mass Lough
More Information
We are being modest when we say ‘Gill’s Pond’ because it is in fact a nice sized lake containing nice sized fish and no, it wasn’t named after one of their gills, it was named after an old woman who lived in a gate lodge type house at the entrance to the lake. The lake contains good sized roach and perch and some fine tench up to 3lb in weight. The angling club is by no means restricted to local residents and annual membership can be obtained. The lake has undergone a major overhaul. It has been cleaned and had all its banks landscaped with proper facilities provided to assure you of an excellent day’s fishing. Tickets from Ballinakill Angling Club. The Mass Lough is one of the most beautiful and scenic lakes in the country.
More Information
Specimen coarse fishing is a feature of the wonderful River Barrow and every year this waterway produces more official award winning fish than any other single fishery in Ireland. Challenging conditions exist during summer on the higher reaches around Monasterevin and Athy as the shallow water becomes weeded with islands of reeds throughout. However, the weed becomes an attractive feature and a satisfying method is to tackle the faster water with a stick float, edging the tackle along the fringes of any natural cover. Local experts use small groundbait swimfeeder rigs, inter-changing with straight bomb tactics so not to overfeed the resident shoals of fish.
