Fishery manager Osgur Grieve was in touch today to report on a fantastic day yesterday for anglers, with 3 super spring salmon landed. Delphi regular Urs Liebundgut was first off the mark, with a lovely salmon of 11.6lbs on a Cascade fly. He was followed by Nico Mittman, who had a fine 9lbs salmon, taken on a Green Butt Cascade. Later in the day Yvonne Zirngibl from the same group hooked and lost another salmon, and that evening local angler Peter Coyne kicked off his season in style with a 10.5lbs ranched fish, taken on a Cascade tube fly.
It’s great to see such good sport this early in the season on the Erriff, which hopefully bodes well for the rest of the season. To book accommodation or fishing contact the staff at Aasleagh Lodge on +353 95 42208, or check out their new and impressive website at www.errifffishery.ie
