Dan O’Neill reports from Mount Juliet on the River Nore…

Some good weather at the weekend saw a lot of olives around. In the early morning olive nymphs were most successful and as lunchtime approached a changeover to an olive emerger proved to a good move.

On the Nore

We had quite a few anglers on the fishery, mostly trout anglers. They had a good number of fish between them. The couple of salmon anglers that tried their luck ended up on the bank scratching there head wondering why there were no salmon present with the water being close to perfect.

I also had a few casts at George’s wall with a nymph given to me by John Mealy called an Anamite, a lovely looking invention. It was presented to me when I asked about targeting larger trout. Not having sufficient time I tried it at George’s wall for 10 minutes and managed 2 beautiful trout that took hard. I was very impressed with his invention and will certainly make more time this weekend to try it further.
