July 2012

For myself, July usually means grilse time on the Finn. 2012 was a bit different because a lot of grilse had already run the Finn due to June being very wet. We had an overnight stay on the Finn at Glenmore on the 14th of the month. There had been a small spate a couple of days before but by the time we got up to fish the water had run off altogether! Plenty of grilse had run however, and the heads of some of the holding pools had plenty of eager grilse.

July is always a nice time to be on the Finn especially when you don't have a long journey to make. If you are able to be on the water early in the morning and late into the night, great sport is to be had. Of course, given spate conditions, sport can be great all day.

 Nice and fresh.
