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
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you
