Richie Ryan of Eire Bass fame has had some good fishing on cork Harbour this year (when the weather did its part). So when his son Seán was visiting he made the most of the relatively calm weather we had in Cobh on Monday morning.

Out they headed to the peaky marks that the pollack love and while it was not a flat calm by any means the conditions were very favourable for throwing a fly. Young Seán put one over on his Grand Dad when we produced this super fish. It’s always great to see a big pollack, and even better to see a big pollack caught on fly. But when it’s a big pollack on fly for a young angler – that really is hard to beat.

Go fishing…
