Tessa’s Shore on Rosduff Lake, Arva, County Cavan

A cracking section of Lough Gowna that has for the past 30 years consistently produced good sport and mixed nets of bream, roach, hybrids and perch. Go along, choose your favourite fishing method – pole, feeder, straight leger or waggler – and relax in the knowledge that there are lots of fish to be caught. It is well to be aware that from the last week in August and for about three weeks, this shoreline is often used for angling festivals. This stretch adjoins Kevin’s Shore on Rosduff and please note that there is a day-ticket charge on this fishery.

Species: Bream, roach, hybrids, rudd, tench, pike and perch
Best baits: Maggots will catch everything but take casters, corn and worms Popular methods: Long pole tackle, waggler and groundbait feeder Local tackle shop: Greenville House, Main Street, Carrigallen
