I spent the day on the Boyne guiding Rob Kurz from Philadephia yesterday. The Trout fishing was very poor but Rob got a nice surprise when he hooked a big Salmon on a trout rod while prospecting the head of a fast run. Rob is a very experienced angler with many large Sailfish and other blue water species on fly tackle to his credit.
He got a serious run for his money from the well rested Salmon but managed to get the fish quickly to the bank where we took some quick pictures.
The fish was of course released and swam away none the worse for its battle. Congratulations on your first Atlantic Salmon Rob!!
