Henk and son Steffan from Holland were here once again for their annual fly fishing trip to the Irish Midlands, the first couple of days were hard going only producing a few Trout for them. Kevin said their were only a few days remaining of the season and the Trout did not seem very active, but this was just about to change for them. Putting in hours of hard work produced some very nice Trout for them, Kevin also said that on one of the days I asked well known angling guide Mick Flanagan to guide them due to being so busy guiding others. They both had a great time and have already made plans to return next year, my thanks to Mick for helping out.
