Kids show the way with salmon catches

Visitors to the famous Galway Weir Fishery on the River Corrib overcame the less than ideal hot and humid conditions to bank no fewer than 58 salmon from the venue.

Among those successful was young Amy Quinn, from Loughrea, who landed her first ever salmon, in the shape of a fine grilse of around 5lb, which fell to a fly.

The salmon season is now in full swing on the weir, with fresh fish coming in on every tide, and with water levels remaining good.
