Had a nice salmon of about 7.5lbs and a beautiful very fresh seatrout of 3.5 lbs, both caught on the fly. Mark followed that last evening with a seatrout of over 5lbs.

The Waterville fishery had a visit from delegates from the COLLABOR8 conference which was being held in Killarney. These delegates
included members of the UK West Country Rivers Trust who were primarily interested in the fishing opportunities in South Kerry.Tom O’Shea showed them the work which was being done in the hatchery and they made a vist to Lough Derriana. Ann McCarthy of Currane Lodge gave a brief talk on the history of the fishing on Lough Currane and Damien Duff at the Waterville Inn provided a fine lunch!  Everyone agreed it had been a worthwhile and interesting visit.
