Well it’s taken a full week and a half, but the Munster Blackwater finally got its first salmon of the season. The fish was caught yesterday, 10th February, at Careysville. Fishery Manager, Patrick Devennie was the lucky angler…

The fish was estimated at around  9lbs caught by myself, on fly (10th Feb in the morning) and returned safely. The fish took a 1 inch copper tube cone head, fished deep on a full sinking Triple D line.

The fish was released in the water as you can see from the photo, minimising any further stress or damage to the fish. This is the process we use at Careysville when returning our fish. We do not net nor beach them. Only if they are badly hooked, are we forced to take them to the bank to unhook them.
