Once again the River Drowes in Kinlough claimed the first salmon of the new year and it proved to be a happy hunting ground for Dungannon angler Ian Martin who landed the first salmon this year, and also landed the first salmon 12 months ago.
Ian took the 8lb fish on a cone head Collie Dog and landed the fish after a 20 minute fight in very high water conditions on New Year’s Day.
Mr Martin’s capture proved to be the 33rd time the River Drowes was the scene of the first salmon being caught.
