    Here in Ireland there is a tagging system for all retained Salmon. Gill tags must be inserted into wild fish if you intend to take them home

    It is a way for the fisheries to regulate stocks and stop the sale of illegal wild fish from poachers amoung other things.

    Some fisheries have a seasonal bag limit for both spring and summer fish and the limit of tags are issued along with your permit. A catch return for release and retained fish must be done at the end of each season.

    Catch and release is practised but we aren't as strict on it as say Scotland. The irish salmon although it has suffered the same as others did not quite reach the low numbers that other countries did and we are now in a bit of a resurgance and wild stocks are getting stronger and stronger on some systems regrettable not all.

    Although we do have a long way to go in catching up with the conservation of Scotland England and Wales and even our cousins on the other side of the pond.

    I hope this helps explain. if not im sure if you post a thread then someone might be able to explain it a bit better than myself

    I havent used this fly yet.

    It came of the vice during the close season and is as yet unnamed and unused.

    Although it is winging its way to a few members on here for the new season in time for the grilse!!!!

    After a few fish it should be named lol lol

    The wing is natural squirrel
