I have been looking forward to this opening day for some time now. Water surface temperature this morning was just over 9 degrees Celsius. About average for this time of year. I was delighted to see the heavy water had run off so, maybe… just maybe!
My first clients were from Limerick… Vanessa Mitchell and Marius Van Niekerk ex Cape Town. I explained to Vanessa how ladies had a good success rate on my boat Pegasus and she didn’t let me down. First cast and bang! She hooked and landed her first sea trout and also the first Moy estuary sea trout of the new season on Pegasus.
Marius missed a couple before he landed his first and had to play the fish for about ten minutes. A strong fresh run Spring fish. Nice, very nice! By the way, they were fishing mackerel strips… deadly!
I will let you in on a little secret about this happy couple in a couple of days… Stay tuned… Judd
