Perfect conditions on the Owenmore in Kerry


Frank Maunsell from the Owenmore Fishery reports:

23 June: We have perfect fishing conditions on the river at the moment. A local man on the river who was fishing for seatrout met 3 salmon. Due to the fact that he was fishing very light gear the first two fish broke on him. 1 was of about 9 lbs the other one 7 lbs and after a long battle managed to land a grilse of 5 or 6 lbs on a 4 lb breaking strain. They were all caught on a small black and silver fly designed by Ross Coyne who is a regular on the river. When we left the river this evening it was rising but will be perfect for fishing for the next few days.
