Had a great day on the water with good friend Neil Shepherd & Bargy up the top of the Island where I got to try out the new G.Loomis NRX fly rods on some longtails …………

We’re now in March & the weather appears to have finally come good

If last Monday was anything to go by – we’re in for some fantastic fishing over the next few months ……………….
