Extended report week ending 18/5/14

I reported yesterday that in particular the middle of last week had produced great fishing. An SRT board member kindly did a ring round the river and it has confirmed the picture of a great week with fish spread throughout the system.

The attached report details some of the catches and lucky anglers from 11 Beats. In particular it was good to hear that Alex Wilding (aged 12), pictured here with his first salmon on the line, went to land it while fishing near Clonegal in a rain storm. Fishing is not just a sport for old men!

The report shows that you can meet fish throughout the system. An active angling presence on the river is the best protection for the fish stocks. If you witness any illegal activity, breaches of the fly only rule above Enniscorthy or the catch and release rules be sure to urgently contact IFI.
