Sharpe bags First Ever

Tim Sharpe 1st ever.The salmon fishing has continued as it did for most of August, slow, with only 4 salmon landed since my last update.

Delphi regular Hugh Brennan had a 6lbs4ozs fish off Fin on a Green Highlander on the 24th. Terry Mulligan had one the next day of 3lbs10ozs, also off Fin and also on a Green Highlander.

Tim Sharpe from the US who is in Ireland for the Notre Dame v’s Navy game managed to land his first ever salmon on the 28th. It was a sea liced fish of 6lbs and took a Delphi Collie in the Holly pool. Hopefully Notre Dame will have the same luck today.

Finally John Monaghan had a sea liced fish from the Meadow pool of approx. 5lbs on a Black Pennell.

The sea trout fishing on the other hand has been encouraging but difficult at times. Since my last update we have landed 107 sea trout. Among the more successful anglers were Brendan Keenan and John McManus who had 25 for their week.

Tom and Shirley Morrison who are the most renowned sea trout couple in Delphi managed 45 sea trout for their stay.

I would be hopeful that sea trout fishing will improve when and if we get some settled weather, so for those sea trout heads out there, please feel free to contact us.
