Andy Burnett with his Easter Monday haul

Longford and Lanesboro is a haven for fishing enthusiasts and during this beautiful spell of weather, there is plenty of fish in these waters!

Well known Longford fisherman Andy Burnett was up early this Easter Monday and he netted a very impressive haul on Lanesboro's famous hot water stretch along the River Shannon. 

Lough Ree Lanesboro Angling Hub posted on their Facebook page: "Plenty of fish in the town this morning. The river is alive with fish. Andy from the hub fished a short 3 hour session at first light to amass a lovely mixed net of big roach and hybrids having around 70 lbs."
