First Salmon of 2017

First Salmon of 2017

Fishery manager Nigel Rush reports that the first salmon of 2017 on the Dawros River (Kylemore Abbey Fishery) was caught yesterday by Geoffrey Fitzjohn. The fish weighed 8.25lbs and was caught in Tullywee Bridge Pool on a size 8 Black Shrimp. It’s great to see the first Kylemore fish already, and hopefully this bodes well
