Galway Fishery

Fishery manager, Seamus Hartigan, reports that water levels were ideal during the week especially for flyfishing enthusiasts, with good numbers of fish present in the river.

Annual visitors from Denmark, Per Balle and David Clarke, had two fish on the fly at 7 lbs. and 5 lbs. respectively! Jose Luis Parde and Jesus Ugarte, Spain, caught two grilse on fly to 5 lbs., while J.P. Convery, Northern Ireland, recorded a fresh run 7.5 lbs. fish on Fly during his visit to the Weir. Jasper Mathews grassed a lovely fresh run six pounder (also on fly), which he sportingly released after a good joust!

A total of 39 fish were recorded during the week, and prospects are looking good for the coming weeks if temperatures drop back as forecast.
