    Default Wet Italian in Ireland

    Hallo to everyone!
    I'm just come back at home from Ireland.
    We was unlucky! Bad weather, rain: a lot of rain, and wind!
    The Moy was high and coloured, Ridge e Cathedral near to unfishable expecially for me that using only fly. We tried on Ballintemple fishery with one fish only for a friend of mine.
    I had better look on Galwey weir with a beautiful fish about to 7 pounds on a wilkinson shrimp size 14 last day.
    Corribb was full of fish, but during my two fishing session they are not too ready to take flies... I have seen angler that caught some fish, but not too much for number of salmon present in the river...
    Anyway, I love irish cowntryside, people, and Guinness & Connemara whiskey too!!!
    I spended lovely days in yours beautifull land!
    I" ll post some photos a.s.a.p.

    sounds like you had a good time even though you were unluckly with the weather. At least though you got a nice fish on the Galway weir. Look forward to seeing some pictures
    so much fishing, so little time

    I've NEVER heard of too much rain in Ireland, we normally pray for as much as possible! In fact the Erriff looked on the low side in the top left photo...

    Believe me it's much nicer fishing in wind and rain than a bright blue sky and a glassy river.

    Well done on the Weir fish though. I'm there on Sunday so hoping for the best...

    To 25lb:
    Of course that I' ll be back in Ireland next year....
    I can' t survive without a visit in "Green Island" one time at year....
    It' s a lot of time that I think about come to live there...
    It' s a difficult step, but not impossible; We will seen in future!
    My favorite countries is Cliffden and Ballina...

    To Oscar:
    I know that rainy day is better for fishing in Ireland. In my little opinion not for Moy, expecially on Ridge and Cathedral, that we booked last December. Unfortunately my friends do not love spate river; I think that with this weather, Eriff, Easky, Deel, Oweduff etc. probably offered better sport than Ballina's beat.... Good luck for The Weir!
