First Fish Of The Season!

A few fresh fish have been seen on our beats over the last couple of weeks but so far the fishing effort has been very light – even though our first fish of the season usually comes about this time in the month. Steve Watt ventured out today, though, and was rewarded with the first fish of the season - a very nice fish of 13lbs on the fly – and followed up with a fish of 16lbs on the devon – both from Port-na-Craig bank this afternoon. Steve wins the Mitchell trophy for the first fly caught salmon of the season by a member on club waters – well done! The river remains at an excellent height – surely not too long before another comes to the net.
