Random fishing and fly tying photographs. I will try to post as often as I can.
Summer is coming…………
Frank Dooley landed the first salmon today (opening day) at the Glenisland River mouth. A very fresh 8lb fish
Capes on the fly tying bench
A broken marker pole on Cullin. Two weeks ago this hazard was covered in water. Take care when fishing and motoring on Irish loughs, there are lots of these damaged poles out there.
Ashore in Castlehill Bay for a brew yesterday
Water is still high on the Corrib River in Galway
I have been sadly amiss in not posting photos lately due to work commitments. Here are some from the shores of Lough Corrib and the ground of Ashford Castle taken today.
Looking across Ballinlough, near Westport, Co. Mayo
getting ready for dying some feathers.
Pearsill’s tying silk, still the best for making spiders.
Storm clouds gather over the Cashel River in County Mayo

Me on top of Nephin last year. You can see the Errew shore, Castlehill Bay and Brachwannsha in the distance.
