The last three days remind me more of what September’s used to be like, wet and extremely windy. We have had almost 5” of rain since my last blog and 6 salmon.
The husband and wife duo of Martin and Barbara Cellier were on the catch sheet again, although this time Martin’s was bigger by 1oz. They had a salmon each on Friday afternoon off Finlough. Martin’s was taken on a Red Assed Muddler tied by Berbara and weighed in at 4lbs14.5ozs. Barbara’s fish was taken on a Tosh and weighed in at 4lbs13.5ozs. Needless to say they were happy campers. On Saturday Ian Carroll from Cork landed a 4lbs fish from the Turn Pool on a Monkey Dog and lst another. Yesterday Mike Shortt landed a fish at the Mouth of the Glenumnera of 3lbs4ozs on a Sunrae Shadow. Martyn Gregory also had a fish off the Turn Pool on a Willie Gunn Waddington weighing in at 4lbs1oz. I myself landed one from the Middle River on a Cascade, weighing in at 11lbs5ozs. We have nothing as yet today but it is being made difficult by the extreme weather.
