Shane Gallagher tells us of another lovely salmon on the Drowes:
Water levels have dropped in recent days to 0.763 metres on the gauge at the Four Masters’ Bridge. http://waterlevel.ie/0000035029/0001/week/ It has been cold and dry since Sunday but today started off with strong winds and rain from the south. Eddie Roulston had his second fish of the season from the Tinker’s Hole this morning. The 8lbs fish took a red flying c with copper blade. The forecast is mixed for the rest of the week with frequent showers in cold and blustery conditions.
