Luke O’Connell reports:
The Ballisodare Fishery saw excellent fishing over the past three weeks. Last week, a total of 29 salmon were caught, with 9 of them being released. There was a 50/50 mix of fish caught on the worm and the fly.
John Connolly was amongst the successful anglers catching four fine spring salmon (three released) of 12 lbs., 10.5 lbs., 10lbs. & 8lbs. The fly that did the trick for John was a Green Butt Copper Body Cascade in size 10.
Clive O’Neill had a fish of 7.4 lbs on the worm, while visiting angler, Colin White, had one of 7 lbs. on the fly. Other successful anglers included Sean Maye with an eight pounder on fly, Noel Barber who released two fish both at 7 lbs. (also on fly), Bernard Harte with a nice 11.5 lbs. salmon also released and Michael Mullaney who landed his first of the season, a lovely 9 lbs. fish taken on the fly.
