A busy week in Delphi as David McEvoy reports:

This week we have a highly motivated and skilled Swedish team led by Hasse Dehlin. They are all experts in catching big salmon in Norway. This skill and expertise which the men claim to have, has so far been almost fruitless with one exception.

Kenneth Nordia had small fish of approx. 5lbs yesterday from Wrens Point off Finlough. The fish was taken on a non descript.

It was however Lisa Engbert who showed all the boys how to do it today when she landed a beautiful 11lbs15ozs fresh fish off Finlough. The fish was taken on a Breakfast fly, never heard of it before but it’s basically a black and orange tube. Lisa it must be said had an excellent ghillie in her husband Nils. Lisa is therefore well in the lead on the score sheet as we speak.

The river is still holding at 25 and we are supposed to get a belt of rain tomorrow night which would give the boys a chance to claw some ground back on Lisa.

On a totally different issue we also have a cottage and 2 rods available for week 23, i.e. 31st May to 7th June which can be an excellent week. If there is anybody interested in this, please contact the Carole or Anne in the office on 095 42222
