First September Salmon

John Sherry landed a grilse of approx 6lbs on Saturday. This is the first fly caught salmon reported from DAA water this season. John’s fish came from Horsehill and was taken on a ‘Thunder and Lightening’. Prior to getting into the water, he had opened a gate for a stranger, offered to share the beat with another rod and given a youngster his prized Ally Shrimp. He was duly rewarded, and the obliging cock fish swam  away strongly on release.
