Fishery manager David McEvoy was in touch with some good news from the Delphi Fishery. The first salmon of 2022 on the fishery was landed today. The lucky angler was Jurgen Mantel. A beautiful silver spring fish of 8lbs, it was taken in the Horseshoe Pool on a Willie Gunn fly. Well done Jurgen, a catch you will surely never forget!

(The fish was a ranched fish, hatched from eggs laid down in the hatchery at Delphi and released as a smolt probably two years ago. Wild fish are all released at Delphi, only hatchery-origin fish are allowed to be kept.)

Go fishing…
