David McEvoy reported that despite a flood earlier in the week fishing at Delphi has been difficult with only 10 fish landed. However it was quite a good week for sea trout fishing with over 50 fish caught, mostly on Doolough.
Among those to land salmon were Gareth Beattie with two fish from the Rock Pool including a fine 12.2 lbs. salmon taken on a Beaded Nymph. William Beattie did well with two fine fish of 6.3 lbs. & 7.7 lbs. from the Horseshoe and Quarry Pools. US angler, Bob Glauber, will definitely remember his visit to Delphi as he managed to catch his first ever salmon – a lovely fresh run sea-liced grilse of just over 4 lbs. Other successful anglers included Declan O’Mahony, Co. Cork, and Ciaran Boland who both had fresh-run grilse. On Finlough, Billy Marshall had a 6.8 lbs. fish with Leo Casey also boating a grilse. Best flies included Collie Dog, Minkie, Willie Gun and Cascade patterns.
