Water on a weir
Galway weir

A brief report from Galway., where sport has certainly improved after a slow spring season. Grilse are starting to show in numbers at the Galway Fishery. The water is in perfect condition with only one gate open. So far at the time of writing we have 82 salmon landed for the month of June. The biggest fish was was 9.5lbs. The majority of fish have been taken on the fly with a Stoats Tail proving very successful. 24 of these salmon were released safely.

Among the anglers to score on their trip to Galway were John Ryan, who had 3 fish on fly to 7lbs, and Ray Drennan and Frank O’Hara, who had 2 grilse each to fly. Sean McManmon landed 2 fish to 6lbs on fly, and the Reilly brothers, Dave and Declan had a grilse each on fly. Jasper Mathews of Wild Atlantic Angling Experiences landed a nice grilse, also on the fly.

Tide-fresh with sea lice attached.
