Donal Connolly of Nonaim Lodge Angling & Accommodation had a great day out on the Corrib with Chilean Visitor Gabriel Orellana from Patagonia region of Chile – a fantastic fishing area for fishing in Chile. They had a great day fly fishing for an Atlantic Salmon, Gabriel was very unlucky as he moved 3 salmon but they failed to hook up. They did however finish with 4 trout – not bad for what is often regarded as a slow time for trout fly fishing. Gabriel enjoyed the beauty of the Corrib and when a couple of Salmon launched out of the water 2 metres from the boat in quick succession he was delighted. Donal hopes to meet and fish with Gabriel again here on Corrib and one day get to Patagonia for some fishing!
