Im extremely happy to say that my partner and me placed third in the first ever international fly fishing competiton. It was hard and a totally different style of fishing but im happy to say our results especially considering the circumstances. I hope you guys enjoy the few pictures of the beautiful Ireland that i put up!

Please find a little space somewhere in your heavily used luggage for a few of us home-bound Trout-Nuts!!! You get around kid!

That looks like a Bow? How did it find it's way in to a Loch in Ireland?

We need a little more info....Picture was nice but how about a little traveloge info...We need a play-by-play.


P.S Jess I forgot to look further up in the post and I've just spotted your other pics...Oops!

Bro you sure those browns aren't wild Atlantic/landlocked salmon? got the deep fork in the tail, the smaller head, black spots no red, no red adipose, no white tipped fins...other than the size of the black spots they look identical to the wild landlocks I catch at the mouth of a reservior by me

The tail doesn't look that forked to me. It's sort of obscured by his arm, but if you look closely, I don't think its forked.

The lake browns often known by the name "Loch Leven" are characterized by black spotting. Some stocked fish here in PA show this coloration also, due to their British genetic heritage. The German Von Behr browns typically show the more red color patterns.

No man these babies sure aren't wild landlock salmon. They're all the Corribs naturally breeding finest native brown trout. And the fish did have the red adipose and the tails were forked more thank usual because i even noticed that was when i first got my eyes on one. But no sir alllll original trucha. Oh and the rainbow was stocked fish. It was caught out of a smaller lake right outside of doonbeg. Still took me for a ride though, taking off 30ft of backing...
