    It's a staggeringly beautiful place. The fish are as fine as any fish in the world.

    it is simply stunning and my camera phone doesn't do the place any justice either... if the big boys fight pound for pound like the wee ones I can't wait to hook one

    They do! I had one just under 4lb from the shore. By the time I'd jumped in the boat and started following I could see the spool! I love the way they jump too. If you catch them early season or over deep water they are delicious too.

    Will be down myself soon. What I`ve noticed over the past twenty years or so is ( especially in recent years ) how much more protracted the Mayfly hatch has become. The fly seems to "dribble" off over a longer period and the hatches are lighter, in general. In the early years of my going down to Corrib, the hatch was more condensed over a shorter period of about 2 weeks and also , when they came, the hatches seemed heavier.
    You won`t catch anything if you don`t keep your bugs in the water!
