September trip to Lough Mask, Mayo, Ireland

A little late about our trip to Ireland in September.
We were based at Lough Mask, Mobile Homes. This is in Mayo county.
The first two days we were fishing traditional Irish style with wet flies from the boat.
I can tell you it was real hard work. We had plenty takes and few nice fish.
On the third day we went to check river Robe, despite everyone telling us that the water level is too low.
Right on the first spot I got a small trout. At the next spot we noticed plenty Daddy Longlegs at the grass, while walking to the water. So we switched to dry flies, and the action was just fantastic.
The next days we spent there, we've checked the Castelbar river, it was very similar to the one we were fishing.
Fishing was fantastic in Ireland, even though we did not really catch any trophy fish.
