Yet another extremely productive week at Ballisodare, where over 140 salmon were recorded, 60 of those released. The week began well on Monday, when 29 were caught, including fish for James Douglas, Lee Bunting, James McGuire and Luke O’Connell, with many others also having success. A further 27 were caught on Tuesday, with fish ranging in size from 6lbs to 11lbs. Among those to score were Alan Walker, J. Brennan, Pat Forkan, David Bell and Ian Thompson.

The bright and warm weather deterred anglers the following day, yet despite this 12 salmon were caught, nine released, with fish ranging from 3lbs to 8lbs. Fortunes improved somewhat on Thursday, when 20 were caught, up to 12lbs. Among those to score were Donagh McDonnell, Tony McDonnell, Clive and Hugh O’Neill. A further 21 were caught on Friday, including fish for Frank Kelly, Roy Simpson, Larry Stevenson and Michael Walsh.

A total of 14 were caught on Saturday, all between 3lbs and 6lbs, with seven of those released, while ten more were landed on Sunday, finishing off a great week, considering the conditions and temperature.
