The Feale (north Kerry/Limerick) has a reputation as one of the best sea-trout rivers in Ireland. Yet for some reason the river has fished badly for sea-trout during the past two seasons. The photograph may give a clue as to why: it shows net-marks on a Feale sea-trout, a fish of around 1lb. which took a small double. It was the only sea-trout we moved during a day's fishing in apparently perfect water conditions.
