Mount Falcon produced its first fish on 18th May to Shane Maloney fishing Cunningham’s Pool. This was a fresh fish weighing 9.75lb.
We had low angling pressure until the last week of month, and had to wait until the 27th for our next Moy fish. This was a sea-liced salmon weighing 10.25lb taken by Doug Armstrong from the Wall Pool Straight on a flying C. This was followed up by a second fish weighing 9.5lb for the same angler from the same pool on the next day.
Our guests Fishing the 3 Rivers packages on Carramore rose a number of fish to the fly, with John Murray boating a fish of 5lb on the 28th.
Tim Jessop (U.K.) landed a fish on the Owenduff to a small black stoats tail and lost another the same day. Also on the Owenduff, Dutch Angling Journalist Rudy Van Duijnhoven had an 8lb spring fish on fly fishing the upper Rock House Water on May 23rd.
The first of the grilse are now entering the river, we had our first one on the 4th June, and we are hopeful that the main run will arrive shortly.
