Nice report Smolt.

That pool sounds reminiscent of the Ridge Pool on the Moy in Balina, Eire.

Back in the 80's, through some local connections with the Moy Fishery, a couple of friends and I had that pool for the princely sum of 20 Irish Punts each for an 8 hour spell and that included the services of a ghillie! The June grilse run used to be outstanding.

Being in the middle of town, as you would expect, there is a fine Irish pub (Docherty's Ridge Pool Bar if I remember correctly) right next to the river and it was there that our Ghillie recieved his well earned tip
