The last few days on the Suir and tributaries has seen some amazing fishing. We are really busy guiding at the moment, with clients from France, UK, USA and Ireland. Some personal bests have been scored this week with great fishing on dry fly and also nymphs. The best flies have been Klinkhammers and PTN flashback nymphs as well as comparaduns and Balloon Caddis.
Conditions are perfect at the moment as the recent warm and humid weather has improved hatches and made for great dry fly conditions in the evening
Scotts first time fishing in Ireland and he had a great day on the river Anner. The fishing was fantastic with good size fish coming to the nymph and dry fly all day.
Frenchman Pierre, has been here for most of the week and his fishing has been amazing. Mainly fishing small nymphs and small dries he has had some fish up to 18 inches.
For the past few weeks we have been playing around with some new PTN flashbacks and Tungsten hot bead flashbacks and they have been very successful. They have worked really well on most of the rivers including the Suir at Cahir and also on the Anner and Nire.
The setup is similar to Czech Nymphing with a 10ft 3wt Greys XF2 Streamflex and a Rio gold Line. We are also now trying with the new Textured Mastery series of Nymph lines with a really nice indicator tip!
Below are some images from a day with David Anchell and also some images with John Paul Williamson
