The Point - Lough Sillan, Shercock, Co Cavan

This is a long match stretch at Annaghfarney with 25 pegs. Fishing is into very deep water - about 2-5 metres deep at 10 metres out. Roach and hybrids are the main species, with occasional skimmer bream showing more often in recent years. Expect 7-8kg to win match with backing weights of 2-6kg. Access is through a gate on the roadside. Match stretch is just beyond the first two fields and extends to the end of the point.
