16/7/2022 As the heatwave took control of the fishing this day you could say the Salmon took a dive to cooler depths as the Currane anglers headed for the high stool and a cold beer and watched the 150th British open as Rory McIlroy shows his class and joint leader at -16 all I can say we anglers always have a good excuse. Wind South light and variable.
