The Willie Gunn is a firm favourite with many of the regular anglers at Delphi and a number of the fish met in the last couple of weeks were tempted by this fine fly. It is little wonder then that the  first salmon of the season was taken on a Willie Gunn Tube. The honours fell to David Dunne who landed this 10.5lb salmon from the Whin Pool.

We are quiet again for the next few days if any of you readers want to wet a line. However, there are still one or two die hards trying their luck.
