    very well said,the youth must be encouraged into fishing,what seems to be missing here is the fishmongors who stood at shaws bridge killing every fish they got and they werent children ,one fish is not going to throw the stocks into crisis point because if it did the river would be closed for salmon angling for everyone,fair play to the young lad and hope he stays at the fishing

Ciaran, I do think you've lost your sense of perspective; I'll ask you one simple question: From the age of 6, till you decided to return all fish you catch (I can only assume that's your standpoint?) how many fish did you kill? There is a case here of throwing the baby out with the bathwater here....


    That's not my standpoint at all...try reading my posts again...

    i dont think its a big deal if he kept the fish because since the lagan had salmon reintroduced the return of adult fish has been going in the rite direction. I hav'nt kept a salmon in years tho i would keep the odd trout. Thats not to say if my daughter happened to catch her first salmon and it just happened to be freshish then we possibly mite keep it. As for a six year old at a river with possibly no adults or anyone is shocking.
    The angler is just part of the bigger picture of wot a salmon has to overcome. Nets, predators, get the point.

    At the start of the year i was at a fly fishing only trout fishery and a guy caught a 6lb eel. He killed it and threw it in the hedge. Me and my m8 walked away in disgust before he ended up in the lake.That eel had prob bin in the lake for years feeding getting ready to head back to the sargaso sea to spawn. He had no rite to kill that eel but the lad keeping the salmon was within his rites and it is nobody elses buisness to be honest

    Also theres a good thow behind the old cocacola factory and up stream past Seymour hill housing estate. belongs to the Church anglers great bit of water.
    Has anyone any info on the Church Hill Anglers who have signage up along this stretch? I've searched high & low and can find no details at all.
