Clesham continues Family Tradition





















It’s great to see families continuing the tradition of fly fishing. Philip Clesham whose father Mike from Kilbernie, Aashleigh (who landed many a Delphi salmon in his time), landed a sea liced fish of approx. 8lbs in the Whin pool yesterday evening. The fish was taken on a Stoats Tail and provided great sport.

The pool had already been fished a few times in the day so maybe Mike who passed away last year was giving a helping hand. Conditions were also far from ideal. So well done Philip.

I’m afraid I have no picture of the fish as it was released but I am including one of the Whin pool this morning, which I think captures the sheer beauty of the Delphi valley. Although I’m sure many of you fishermen would prefer to see grey clouds and rain.

I should also apologise that in my excitement of reporting our first fish I omitted to include that the fish was indeed caught on (no marks for guessing) a Willie Gunn.

Hopefully the few serious anglers we have this week will keep the trend of the last few days going. D.McEvoy
