Regular client Willie was in contact with me lately to do some fishing as he had bought a new Sage reel for a 5wt. We have had a lot of rain recently and this has meant a rise in water levels and some colouring of the waters.
However as water clears this can be a great time to target large predatory browns.
The chosen method – streamers. Remember that you need a specialist streamer line to fish these effectively. Willie got his from Pat at Premier Angling Supplies in Nenagh. Anyway, as is often the case when teaching an old Sage new tricks Willie was a bit skeptical about streamer fishing. However when his new reel started to scream, he changed his views. Another large brown for us this season . . . they just keep on coming
This one came from very slow deep water. Handle with care and release safely!
