March Ending in Fine Style
Well, we have thirteen more Springers landed here at Delphi since my last update. Paddy’s day brought a Grand Slam and the Mini Beast from the East. Our fishing as I had said previously really started to improve.
Despite bitterly cold conditions one of our Swedish party, Goran Kaslsson managed to land a nice fish of 9lbs1oz from the Kings Pool on a Tosh Tube on Paddy’s day. On the 18ththere were three landed. Asa Andersson had one of 6lbs11ozs from the Kings Pool on a Thea. Tomas Tholin had one from the Grilse Pool on a Banana Fly of 6lbs2ozs and Tomas Tholin had a second of approx 7lbs from the Deadman’s, again on a Banana Fly.
Conditions became a little more difficult then as the water dropped off and fish were hard to tempt for a few days, but we had heavy rain again on Thursday the 22nd. Water levels were well up on Friday with the river running at 60. Ryan McGoldrick from Sligo had a lovely fish of 8lbs13ozs from Morrisons on a Cascade Tube.
Can Sozcu on his first visit to Delphi had a nice fish of 9lbs15ozs off Finlough on a non descript. Bob Colson from the US had a fish of approx. 7lbs from the Grilse Pool on a Gasbay Shadow. On Monday Werner had a fish of approx. 9lbs from the Schoolhouse on a Delphi Collie. He followed this up on Tuesday with one of approx. 9lbs from Duck Run on a Night Star. He was again successful the following morning with a lovely fish from the Rock Pool of 10lbs12ozs on a Black and Yellow Tube.
This was followed up two hours later when Yvonne landed a fish of 9lbs8ozs, again in the Rock Pool on a Night Star. Yesterday the 29th, Holger Peres had a lovely fish of 9lbs10ozs from the Rock Pool on a Delphi Collie, having lost a fish just beforehand. Finally, Werner had another fish of approx. 8lbs from Morrisons on a Delphi Collie.
With the temperatures down slightly today, we had nothing by lunchtime. With a day and a half left, our total for the month is 24. With big tides over the next few days and the river running at 40, I would be hopeful that we would add another one or two before close of play tomorrow. D.McEvoy
