Two French anglers visited the River Boyne over the last three days to fish with local angling guide Peter Cunningham. Peter has been producing some great results for visiting anglers over the course of the season and so it was again over the last three days on the River Boyne. The water levels are good at the moment in the Boyne and a slight tinge of colour is still in evidence but this does not seem to have deterred fish from taking. What fish are around though, are not showing a great deal but I suppose when you know where they usual hang out like Peter there is always a chance of a fish. The weather over the last few days has been fantastic and this always adds to the feelgood factor as well as helping to showcase the fantastic scenery in the Boyne Valley.

Day 1 on Thursday saw the lads arrive at Dublin airport and head straight to the river. They were very keen to get started. The first session with Peter produced two cracking fish, one for each angler, one of 16lbs and one of 14lbs. Both fish had been in the river a while, were taken on shrimp and put up a great fight before being carefully released back to the waters of the River Boyne.

Yesterday, Friday was day two, and there was lots of action with a good few takes and fish missed but unfortunately no fish hooked or landed. Another angler fishing further upstream had one small fish circa 5lbs.

Today Saturday was the last day of the short trip. The lads were back on the river again early with Peter and were already very happy with their visit, having both achieved their personal best salmon on this trip. However, they did not know it but they were not quite finished yet. During the session today, the lads hooked and landed three more salmon. The first was a fresh run fish weighing around 10lbs and this was followed shortly afterwards by another fresh run 5 pounder. The day was rounded off with with a final fish weighing circa 7lbs which had been in the river quite a while.

It was time for the lads to get back to the airport for their return flight to France but not before enjoying some well earned fish and chips on the river bank. What better way to round off a great trip!
