The Eighth Springer of the Season is Caught!

This fish was taken at 3pm yesterday by PJ Burns from Dublin.  Weight 8.2lb.

He took it on spinner on the Lodge’s lowest beat – Ballygally – about 2 miles below Ballyduff.
This is the third springer for March & the eighth for the season so far.


This is the Blackwater in absolutely fine fettle this morning.


The recent rain only brought the river up 12 cm by Saturday morning to 0.46m on the gauge.

It’s down to 0.36m @ 18.45 this evening.


No fish taken today, but a couple seen again on Ballygally.

Conditions are absolutely perfect. Clarity about 4 feet, water temp. 47F.

Beautiful fly height with summer level.
