Trevor Greene has been fishing for almost 60 years. He mainly fishes for trout on the western loughs particularly Loughs Melvin and Conn. He also dabbles in salmon and sea trout fishing again in the west of Ireland. Closer to home he spends a lot of his autumn fishing for the Lough Neagh trout the dollaghan after it enters the rivers on its spawning run.

He has fished at inter-provincial level but prefers purely recreational fishing in a generally traditional style. That is reflected in his fly tying where he concentrates on traditional patterns saying that “……flies only get to be traditional because they work!”
