Andy's second fish of the day
Andy's first fish of the day
21/5/14 There was some great fishing on the Waterville Fishery today, so straight to the action, first in the striking zone was Mr. Andy Wishart of Northern Ireland, who caught a fine 11 lbs Salmon on the troll at 9 am this morning even before his Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of had arrived to take  Andy out, well I can tell you it wasn’t long before their trolling rod went off again with another fine Salmon in the 11 lbs. class. Also in good form in the trolling department was Mr. Liam Ellis of Waterville, who also caught a fine 10 ½ lbs. Salmon on the troll. Now to the fly department, Mr. Marcel Guillou of the UK caught a fine 11 lbs Salmon on the Fly with a Trout rod and by all accounts going by what his Gillie Mr. Vincent O’Sullivan of said, Marcel had one almighty battle with his noble Salmon and the rest is history.Now to the Sea Trout department, Mr. Arthur White of the UK fishing with his Gillie Mr. Bob Priestly, caught a fine 4 lbs Sea Trout on the troll.  Well the action didn't stop there, upstream on the Commeragh River, there was also some fine action, first in the striking zone, fishing with the Black Birds fancy, was Mr. Mike Teahan the Matador of Waterville and the Bull Ring, Tralee, who caught 2 Salmon ranging from 8 lbs up to 10 lbs. Sadly I only got a photo of his first Salmon. And last but not least Jean from France and fishing out of caught a fine 6 ½ lbs. Salmon and also caught another fine Salmo which he sportingly put back both fish were caught on the lower part of the Commeragh River. Wind was all over the place and light, with bright sunshine and just for the record it made 17.5 mm of rainfall yesterday.
