I fished hard nonetheless, no point in travelling two and a half hours and buying a permit only to head home without even giving it a throw. I saw no fish and caught nothing bu it was really interesting fishing the river in low water conditions and I learnt a lot about possible lies. The clear water and good light meant that I was able to make out the riverbed easily.
Salmo Salar obstacle course!
A Jan Eric Granbo pattern gets a swim.
Looking upriver from the eel weir. Perfect or what for a Bomber?
Much lower water than the last day I fished the Lackagh.
Singles for catch and release rivers. Barbs squeezed of course!
A Dunt Dee tied on with a rapala knot. Maximum movement for the low water.
