Elaine 1-Mark 0

Elaine Corps_8lbs6ozs_Delphi_SalmonYesterday was a great day for Elaine Corps, wife of IFI’s fishing guru and top angler, Marks Corps. Elaine landed her first ever salmon and in doing so completely out fished her husband. He did inform me that he was the ghillie for the day and it was his duty to catch his wife a fish. Good story Mark!! Congratulations to Elaine in landing her first a cracking 8lbs6ozs sea liced fish on a Collie Dog off Finlough. Hope it will be the first of many.

Philip Fleming managed to land a sea liced fish of approx. 4.5lbs from Finlough stream on a Collie Dog. It is Philip’s first Delphi visit and he also lost a fine fish on the river in the afternoon.

Mike Shortt also managed to land one from the Horseshoe pool, but I’m afraid he’s bringing down our average. The fish was approx. 2lbs and was taken on a Cascade.

So far today we have one fish landed. This was taken by Hans Majeron from Finlough on a Black and Yellow tube and weighed 3lbs7ozs.

Hopefully with good water we will see a steady increase in the number of fish running.
