Frank holds fish of the day on the pool and Roger takes the photo!
24/6/17 The Waterville Fishery produced some cracking fishing today so straight to the action, with 10 boats out on the Lake there is only one angler that takes all the Salmon headlines and catch of the day on Lough Currane and that goes to Dublin angler Mr. Colin Lynam and he’s no stranger to the Waterville fishery and you can see why, because Colin, caught 3 Salmon on the troll and their weights are as follows 4 lbs. 5 lbs. 7 lbs. respectively and Colin finished his day off with two C&R fine Sea Trout caught on the fly/drift. Staying in the Sea Trout department, Mr. James Merriot, while fishing with his gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of  caught 1 Junior on the drift. Now we head down stream to the World Famous Butler Pool and catch of the day on the Pool, goes to Mr. Roger Simpson, while manipulating his flies on this famous river it wasn’t long before his fly rod was bent double into a cracker of a 12 lbs. Salmon but the action didn’t stop there because as soon as his Gillie Mr. Frank Donnelly of dispatched his fine fish, Roger was on the hunt and his enthusiasm payed off with another fine Salmon in the 7 lbs. class which I might add he sportingly put back. Wind West fresh with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 4.8mm. Maximum air temperature 15.4c.
