The Start beat

With the rivers very low at present this beat presents members with their best chance of catching a fish or two. One member had some success over the weekend catching three sea trout up to 2llb on the fly. Members are reminded that any catches are to be reported at the end of your days fishing to committee member Dave Charlton. If you notice the croy has diminished slightly then please feel free to place the stones back in position, any assistance greatly appreciated.

The boats have been placed on the Lough in preperation for the start of the season on 1st May. Members are reminded that boats have to be booked in advance prior to fishing. Thanks to members assistance in placing the boats on the Lough.
