Fishery manager Osgur Grieve was in touch again with an update from the Erriff Fishery, covering fishing from 27th July – 2nd August.
Jack Mannion fished under our ghillie’s supervision on the 27th of July and was rewarded with his first ever salmon, caught on an Ally’s shrimp from Beat 8, he also caught and released a 0.5lbs sea trout on a silver stoat’s tail, well done Jack, we hope it’s the first of many!
Local club man Conor O’Leary was next up that evening with a 3.25lbs grilse from the Falls Pool – he caught his fish on a Cascade. Regular visitor Gael Kerschbaumer started his stay with us nicely with a fine 6.15lbs grilse from the Sea Pool on the 31st, this fish was taken on a Willie Gunn micro-tube. Gary Freed from the US had a 0.75lbs sea trout from Finnegan’s on Beat 2 and another from the Lower Garden Pool on Beat 9, then it was Garry’s turn to catch a grilse and did so in style from the top of the falls, this fish was estimated at 5.5lbs and was released again after putting up a good struggle.
Monday the 1st was quieter with 1 sea trout being released by Greg Rushing of about 0.75lbs.
