Travels with a volcano 3: The Kerry Owenmore




The Kerry Owenmore is a lovely spate river which tumbles from the Dingle mountains to meet the sea at Brandon. There are at least three fishable loughs on the system and the scenery and management of the stream are alike splendid. The only problem during our visit was that the sea-trout hadn't seemed to run, and there were only a few grilse about, despite the fact that we were fishing in absolutely perfect water conditions (a big and dropping flood). Despite our entire lack of success, however, I thoroughly enjoyed my visit...and in a strange sort of way also enjoyed watching waterspouts sweeping down Brandon Bay during an afternoon of intense storms.
