Martin to the Fore

Martin Cellier_2Since my last update there are another three fish to add to the book. Being honest this was disappointing, I thought we would have had a few more fish.

We had a nice flood yesterday with the river touching 65 on the new gauge for the first time. However the water was back down to 20 this morning. Surprisingly we only got 15.6mm of rain, so everything ran off quickly.

Martin Ceillier did manage to outfish his wife Barbara again this year when he landed a fresh 4lbs2ozs fish off Finlough on a Willie Gunn, on Saturday afternoon.

Yesterday Robin Cox who is on his first visit to Delphi managed to land a fresh fish of approx. 4lbs off Doolough. This would appear to be the third grilse of the season.

This morning Fred Eberle started his Delphi fishing week in style when he landed a sea liced 7lbs6ozs fish off the Whin pool on a Willie Gunn.

It looks like there is some rain forecast tomorrow which will keep the river up, but it looks like everything will get a good wash out on Thursday night and Friday morning when there is heavy rain due.

This will hopefully draw in all remaining springers and get the grilse moving. Fingers crossed!!
