Darragh was fishing a yellow “flying C”. River conditions are reported to have been high and coloured. The salmon weighed in at 8lb and the details were recorded in Darragh’s logbook.  Darragh was 10 years old on the day of the capture, and turned 11 the following day. He is delighted with his catch and early present.

Conditions on the river are improving as the water levels continue to drop.
