Lovely Weather

Fishing this week has been difficult to say the least. One would be forgiven for thinking you were on the Cote d’Azuras temperatures reached 21degrees.

The gauge on the Rock Pool is now reading 3cms; so you could say water levels are low.

It’s on weeks like this one has to sit back and enjoy Delphi for what it is, one of the most beautiful places on earth, even though blue skies and no wind are the salmon fisherman’s nightmare.

Believe it or not we did actually catch 3 fish this week, all off Doolough trolling. Hasse Dehlin had one at Cross Point on Sunday of 10lbs approx.

Stephan Boninger had a fish of approx. 8lbs on Monday fromBadgerBayand Hasse Dehlin had his second on Tuesday fromWeedyBayof  7.5lbs approx.

All fish were fresh but not sea liced.

At the moment it looks like the dry weather is set to continue and the wind is to go northerly which will make fishing challenging to say the least. It may be a question of taking in the beauty once more and considering oneself lucky to be alive.

I’ll sign off now before I start talking too much bull—–
