[ June 2009 ]
Deirdre Forde reports that after the excitement and buzz of the Mayfly season June settled into a quiet rhythm of sunny days and family excursions. Gone were the keen “Dappers” to be replaced by enthusiastic young anglers who were only too delighted to have found a willing victim in the form of a perch. It is always nice to see parents and children enjoy a day on the lake, armed with rods and packed lunches. June is a time for the trout to return to feeding on perch fry and this year was no exception. Some anglers fished early mornings, targeting trout feeding on Caenis while late evenings proved successful for some anglers with buzzers and sedge hatches.
The memories of a good mayfly are receding now and thoughts are once again on the Salmon running. With the long anticipated flood coming into the river in front of the Lodge, the youngest member of our family has his rod at the ready, sightings of salmon moving in the river are numerous and we appear happy with just the possibility of half a chance. Hopes are high that the good fishing will continue for the remainder of the season.
