Danny’s story, I arrived at a spot on the river Moy just below Ballylaghan bridge. The river had just started to drop after a good rise. It was about 8.05am when i started fishing using a black flying C. After spinning for a while I got an almighty tug, this is it, after a good fight I landed a nice fish, weighing in at 11.3/4 LBS.
