Finn McCool the legendary giant created Lough Neagh


Finn McCool famous for his strength and for building the Giants Causeway is said to have picked up a piece of land and thrown it at a Scottish rival. He missed and the earth landed in the middle of Northern Ireland and made Lough Neagh.

Lough Neagh is the largest freshwater lake in the British Isles covering 153 square miles (400 square km) and touches five of the six counties of Northern Ireland.

There is great fishing in Lough Neagh and in the rivers and small lakes flowing into it.

The Lough as it is known locally is famous for its fishing – eels, salmon, perch, bream, pollen, reach and dollaghan can be found there. The eels are fished commercially using lob worms as bait. The salmon, pollen and perch are drawn by fishing worms on the anglers hook.

Leansmount Worms is on the shores of Lough Neagh and supply fishing worms to commercial fishermen and sport anglers.
