Edmund Corry had a day to remember last week when fishing Lough Cloon, one of the lakes on the Caragh system in co. Kerry.

Fishing a team of wet flies that included a home tied black dabbler, Edmund met a fine fish. Following the take a dogged fight followed and he was in no doubt that he had hooked into a substantial fish, and on his own Black Dabbler too.

The trout was eventually brought to the boat and carefully netted by his steely nerved fishing partner, Brian King. Once landed Edmund got a couple of photographs  of his prize before carefully releasing it again to fight another day.

Go fishing…
