June and the dreaded Curse!!!!

Hi All ,

Well as expected the caenis arrived the first Day's of June and we were kept busy with light leader and small dry flies.The winds have been never ending and made for some difficult 4am starts but with a little experience and finding the right spots we had amazing fishing. The fly has hatched every morning for the entire month and lots of great trout have been caught and released.                       The first good hatch was on the 3rd which produced 10 good trout to 4lb for Jeremy Herrmann. Gareth Jones the Airflo sales director had his second trip to Corrib View and guideg by myself had 3 mornings for 26 trout many of which were in excess of the 4lb mark and one which tipped the scales at 5lb.On one of the days we were blown off the water so decided to fish the cong river where Gareth caught a lovely 6lb Salmon and dropped 2 more at the net.

Owein Meeling and Nick Meesham shared a boat with myself for 5 days and caught 51 trout on small dry flies size 18 and 20's.Malcom Patrick visitor from the UK enjoyed 3 great mornings on Corrib with wet and windy conditions producing several fish over 4lb and a PB for Malcom of 5lb 2oz.

Another notable catch was Jim Mc Evoy from Cork and Ian MacIntosh from Waterford who on the 19th of the month had an incredible 22 trout for one morning while guided by myself.                     We then had 3 regular visitors from Andorra Victor,Xavi and Jaques who in 3 days caught 14 trout and 4 Salmon and the capture of a lifetime for Victor a 10lb trout!!!

The great fishing continued all month and Tony Ling and Tony Donnley both first time visitors from the UK had a memorable 4 day's which produced 12 trout with many over 3lb one at 4lb 10oz and a great trout on 3lb leader which weighed 5lb 10 oz.

As I write the fly is still hatching and with the low temperatures it should continue well into July.
