Andrew Ryan, APGAI Clonanav Fly Fishing reports:

Traditionally late July and August are not the most productive times for river fishing, but we have been having some amazing fishing of late.  The rivers are low and clear but the fish are concentrated in the deeper pools. Some of the heavy showers last week did freshen up the river, but this year there still seems to be plenty of water after having such a wet spring.

Photos to follow.  Henry Smyth also had some good fishing, getting some nice fish on both dry and on small nymphs.
