Fishing in Ireland, salmon fishing

Beltra this evening

Tried Lough Beltra for a few hours this evening but with no success. The wind was good for drifting the Coop shore but the fish were unresponsive. Bright conditions gave way to some high cloud as the sun set but the outstanding feature of the evening was the cold. Still no sign of Spring in this part of the West of Ireland. At least I managed to take a few snaps.

The only action was a small fish of around a couple of pounds slashing at the bob fly as we drifted along the shore of Walsh’s Bay. It looked like a sea trout kelt to me (certainly too small to be a spring salmon).

So, no fish but a great evening to be out and about on the lough. The winds are due to slacken off as the week goes on so Beltra will be out of order but Carrowmore should pick up. I could be in Bangor next week!
