The week started well for Jarlath Winters up at Glenmore on the River Finn as he heard the first cuckoo of the year and landed his first salmon on the same morning.

First of the season for Jarlath

And, with some rain forecast over the following days to coincide with some spring tides, it had the feel of being a fishy week on the Finn… The river didn’t disappoint and as the water came right after the rain, some nice bars of silver slid over the nets.

A beaut for Willy Walker
