Delphi and the West 2010: Feel my Goat's Toe

In mid-August we travelled to the Irish West, enjoying white-trout fishing at Delphi, Kylemore, Glencar lake and the Ballysadare estuary (Sligo) and the Owenduff estuary in Mayo. It was a grand week. What follows is a very brief photographic tour of some highlights of these angling travels. At present I'm writing up four feature articles about the trip, which I hope will eventually appear in Trout and Salmon, so I urge you to look out for these features in future issues.

The shot shows white-trout flies, among which is the Goat's Toe (that big straggly thing with the red posterior) clicked into Peter Joyce's hat as he very expertly gillied us on Doolough, the largest lake of the Delphi system. Tough white-trout fishing, partly on account of the weather, which was either burnished and windless or drenched and wind-stricken.
