Below is the fish which was taken at 3pm on March 17 (St. Patrick’s Day) by PJ Burns from Dublin. Weight 8.2lb.
He took it on spinner on the Lodge’s lowest beat – Ballygally – about 2 miles below Ballyduff.
This is the third springer for March & the eighth for the season so far.
This is the Blackwater in absolutely fine fettle on the morning of the 18th.
