Lorcan Little caught his first salmon ever on the upper reaches of the Glen River, Carrick, Co. Donegal on July 25th.

Lorcan fished all the likely spots with a size 12 Shadow Shrimp  before eventually getting a pull. The fish was about 4lbs and put up a great account of itself Lorcan’s 5 weight fly rod.
