All the news from the Munster Blackwater……..

Fort William….

Paul Whelan reports for Fort William Lodge:

Kevin Shone had a 5.5lb fish off the Bishops beat. Gerry Barker had a fish of 5lbs of the Ellis beat and safely returned and lost another.
Keith Shearing guided by Chris Coady has landed and released 2 fish of 7lbs each. Chris landed a 5lbs fresh fish off the Castle beat.
Another cracking fish lost on the Castle beat, fish jumped and broke the line. 16lbs ++. Plenty of water there for a fish of this size to travel through lower beats.
Fishing hasn’t been easy in the last few days so maybe this is the start we needed.

Blackwater Lodge…..

Glenda Powell enjoyed the fishing Sunday on the river and caught a lovely little fish which came to a micro treble fly in the afternoon.  A quick snap of Glenda and the fish and back it went safely.
