May's Catch of the month goes to Danny Levy who caught this magnificent trout on a dryfly on Lough Sheelin last month. As soon as he hooked it he knew it was a good fish as it stayed deep for several minutes. R.S.D.A.C Asst Chairman Jarlaith Gallagher was on hand to net this leviathan after a spirited 25 minute struggle. The fish topped the scales at exactly 6lb and was a personal best for Danny. The fish was also sportingly returned to fight another day. Well done Danny.

This month's COTM goes to Mohill angler and club PRO Jarlaith Gallagher who caught a fine rainbow trout on a Sligo lough recently. Jarlatih was accompanied by fellow angler and close friend John Cloughley who duly obliged and took some excellent photographs of Jarlaith's quarry which are displayed below. Jarlaith informed me that the fish which was a little over 3.5lbs took and a black and green lure and fought right to the net. John also had a fine fish so well done to both of the lads and thanks for the photographs and reports as always.
