Fishing picks up in spite of low water............................

 This is the Blackwater below the Lodge today with the Ballyduff gauge on 0.14m!

September started slowly with only six fish in the first week due to very low water.
However, a slight change to cooler, more overcast weather
seems to be livening the fish up a bit!

Two fish per day were caught for last Saturday & Sunday, including a 14 pounder released
on Saturday 7th on fly on the lower river, and a 13 pounder on the 8th - also released on fly.

Yesterday (9th.), 12 fish were caught including nine for 2 rods on one beat which were all surprisingly fresh grilse, & a First Ever Salmon (on fly) for Georges Caballero (France)

There are huge numbers of fish waiting in the 30km of tidal reaches for a flood
to run the main river. There is some fairly heavy rain now forecast for Saturday.

We have just a few rods available for September,
but good availability for the extension to October 12th.
