July 13th, 2017 | by

Osgur Grieve has the angling report for the Erriff 05/7/17 to 11/7/17…

A total of 18 salmon were landed for the period with a lot more hooked and lost. Miguel Diaz (Spain) and his friend fished with us on the morning of Wednesday 5th July and was rewarded with a fresh ranched grilse of 6lbs from the upper garden pool, this fish was taken on a Cascade. Seamus O’Neill visited us on the evening of the 6th and returned a 2lbs. grilse from the upper garden pool, this fish came to a small tube fly.

Friday 7th saw visiting angler Nick Fenton catch a ranched grilse from the falls of 3.5lbs. using a Cascade. That afternoon Dexter Lynas released 3 fresh wild grilse of 3.5lbs, 3.5lbs., 2lbs. Two of which came to a Cascade and the other to a Blue charm tube, these fish were caught in the lower garden, falls and middle garden pools respectively. The use of small tube flies recently has produced a lot of interest from the grilse with many fish hooked and lost with some staying on to be landed.
