There was a good flood on the Bandon last week and as it fined off a few nice fish were caught. The Bandon Angling Association tells us that a good number of fish have been reported since the rise, mostly a mix of fresh and stale grilse. Day ticket holder Rob McKechnie caught his first fly caught salmon during the week. This was Rob’s first time fly fishing for salmon and he had a great battle using his single hander before eventually landing the fish 20 minutes later.
