September Storms

The last three days remind me more of what September’s used to be like, wet and extremely windy. We have had almost 5” of rain since my last blog and 6 salmon.

The husband and wife duo of  Martin and Barbara Cellier were on the catch sheet again, although this time Martin’s was bigger by 1oz. They had a salmon each on Friday afternoon off Finlough. Martin’s was taken on a Red Assed Muddler tied by Berbara and weighed in at 4lbs14.5ozs. Barbara’s fish was taken on a Tosh and weighed in at 4lbs13.5ozs. Needless to say they were happy campers. On Saturday Ian Carroll from Cork landed a 4lbs fish from the Turn Pool on a Monkey Dog and lst another. Yesterday Mike Shortt landed a fish at the Mouth of the Glenumnera of 3lbs4ozs on a Sunrae Shadow. Martyn Gregory also had a fish off the Turn Pool on a Willie Gunn Waddington weighing in at 4lbs1oz. I myself landed one from the Middle River on a Cascade, weighing in at 11lbs5ozs. We have nothing as yet today but it is being made difficult by the extreme weather.
