    IFI Seeks Views on Ways to Improve Salmon and Sea Trout Tagging Scheme

    Thank you to everyone who has offered their opinions so far! Summarising my own thoughts so far on the subject, I hope any changes made to the current system in place will be to encourage anglers to submit accurate catch data on a regular basis via a digital logbook on an app rather than...

    IFI Seeks Views on Ways to Improve Salmon and Sea Trout Tagging Scheme

    Thought there might be a little bit more discussion on this 😅😂 Are anglers happy with the system in place or do they want to see wholesale changes? This is an excellent opportunity for everyone to voice their opinion on what is a hugely important component of salmon and sea trout angling in...

    Some great fish in those old photos! The Bandon counter is no longer in operation. It was used to estimate a partial count and there was always a debate as to what proportion of fish used the pass and what percentage traversed the weir itself. Every counter and site is different so some work...

    Out of interest, how long ago was it since you saw salmon running the Newport River in January? On the Bandon, we had a run of 200 plus fish in January 2010 I think it was also. All late running, fresh silver fish coming in to spawn and migrate back downstream all within a few days!

    River Bandon

    PM sent Boomdocker 👍 Fishing has tapered off a little just now. Springers were late but very good sport enjoyed by many and we were lucky with some lovely water. Grilse are only around the corner and the run should be well on by the time you're down. Photo of one of three fish I had a few...

    Killing classic flies and spinners on the Slaney (in 1933 / 34)

    Great history there! In Cork at least, collie is another name for minnow. Used to love going down to the river beside our old family farm on the Argideen, catch a few collies with a hand net, put them in a glass jar filled with water, watch them for a while and put them back again. Simple...

    Best sunglasses, for UK, River fishing

    Costa 580G copper lens silver mirror. Great on sunny days and the glass doesn't scratch. Bought a pair in 2012 and only had to have them repaired in 2019. Wear them a lot for work also so can say they are very durable as long as you look after them. This year, for lower light conditions, I...
