Fishing has certainly improved since the heavy rain last Thursday with 13 fish landed since my last update on Friday.

Manfred Wolf from Germany had a beautiful sea liced fish of 8lbs 7ozs with his last cast of the week. The fish was taken on a Willie Gunn in the Deadmans with the river running at 70.

Saturday morning was quiet with no fish but then we had 7 in the afternoon, 1 off the river and 6 off Finlough.

David Hudson had a sea liced grilse of approx. 2.5lbs from the Waterfall on a Willie Gunn.

Ciaran Boland had the first off Finlough for the afternoon of 6lbs1oz on a Gaula Temple Dog which is well chewed at this stage.

Chris Flanagan from Boston had one of 6lbs4ozs from the Boat Point on a Collie Dog.

For Paul Wymes it was definitely normal service resumed when he managed to land 4 off Fin in the afternoon. They weighed in at 3lbs9ozs, 7lbs10ozs and approx. 3 and 7lbs. Three were taken on a Silver Stoat and one on a Red Francis.

Yesterday we had 4, all taken in the morning. Sean Moogan got off the mark for 2012 with a superb fish of 11lbs1oz from Salmon City in Finlough. The fish was taken on a Willie Gunn.

Not to be outdone by her husband Mary Flanagan landed 2 fish on Doolough including her first ever. Both fish were taken on a Willie Gunn and weighed in at approx. 4 and 6lbs.

Thomas Ahlers from Germany also managed to land his first ever salmon. It was 5lbs14ozs and was taken on a Silver Stoat.

Finally this morning David Hewetson-Brown landed a fish of  7lbs 9ozs off Doolough.

Water is still holding at 25 but it is extremely bright, not ideal but at least there is a good breeze. Hopefully the water will hold up for another few days and our catches will continue as per the last few.
