I would have been disappointed this week if no fish had been landed and in fairness to the guru’s they delivered. 4 of the 5 fish landed this week were by long time Delphi regulars who between them have approximately 70 years experience here.
Mark Corps was first on the score sheet with a nice grilse of approx. 4lbs from the Sluice at Doolough on Wednesday. The fish was taken on a Silver Horn. Mark also had another fish of 4lbs6ozs from the stream in Finlough on a Collie Dog.
Jeremy Orme also had a fish on Wednesday off Doolough of approx. 4lbs on a Green Peter.
Yesterday Mike Shortt had a fine fish of approx. 12lbs in the Stream on Finlough on a Red Francis.
Finally another one of Mike’s party Chris Cromey Hawke had one off Finlough of 9lbs3ozs on a Collie Dog.
We had 28 sea trout for the week, which was disappointing, although fishing at times was difficult due to adverse weather conditions.
Martyn Gregory’s party including himself, Jeremy Orme, Somerset Moore, Sandy Moore and Raoul Moore accounted for 8, including one of approx. 3.5lbs. The remainder were taken by Mike Shortt’s party.
I expect more salmon to be landed this week with such experienced anglers as Paul and Maggie Sims, Mike Heckler, the Westropp boys and Jack Browne who will of course be without his old sparring partner and Ghillie the late Paddy Heneghan. So again no pressure on the anglers. D.McEvoy
