Buttery trout!

It was a blustery start with strong gusts and scattered showers throughout the day. The sun shone for one angler on the day and that was Julie Gerry who had 7 fish for the top honors. Julie had caught some lovely fish all day but she did catch a lovely buttery Brown trout. The top boatman on the day was Mark Dermott.
