And if so what spinners would you recommend
No Pal I'm sorry to tell you that spinning on the Slaney has been banned for the last 10 years or more.Hi all I was just wondering are we allowed to fish with spinners for salmon on the slaney this year
Thanks for the response just getting into salmon fishing but want to buy some prawn/shrimp for when season starts. Do you know any one selling some prawns or shrimp.No Pal I'm sorry to tell you that spinning on the Slaney has been banned for the last 10 years or more.
You may go the three Sisters if you want to spin for Salmon, or appear before Colin Daly otherwise the choice is yours.
I'd say your best bet is adverts, there is a few heads selling them on that site, you can fish the prawn below Enniscorthy Bridge that's tidal water there, the lads fish them off the Bridge thereThanks for the response just getting into salmon fishing but want to buy some prawn/shrimp for when season starts.

Don't know the ins and outs of the law, but it's like a fair day down there sometimes in Enniscorthy, lads fishing off the Bridge into the pool below it, I have never done it personally but have witnessed it with my own two eyes and have seen them catch alot of fish too.Fishing off a bridge is illegal!
The law is in place to stop people from snatching! Amazing that the fishery board do nothing about it!Don't know the ins and outs of the law, but it's like a fair day down there sometimes in Enniscorthy, lads fishing off the Bridge into the pool below it, I have never done it personally but have witnessed it with my own two eyes and have seen them catch alot of fish too.

Is there a total ban on the spinner or is it just upstream of Enniscorty bridgeDon't think so , probably be 1st April again i'd imagine
On the spinning - don;t think you'll ever see spinning upstream of Enniscorthy again, the numbers of fish simply aren't there and not likely to be again
Ban on prawn and shrimp.I may take up fly fishingThis seasons bye law, curious if they bring forward the opening date can’t find it anywhere though.

Nowt wrong with that for your first fly.First ever fly any tips would be appreciated
Thanks for the advice what type fly lines would be best for spring fishingNowt wrong with that for your first fly.
There are lots of video's on YouTube showing step by step instructions of tying Salmon flies, Davie Mcphail has a very good following.
A few stoats tails, hairy Mary's, thunder and lightnings, blue charm any of the old school flies on a floating line on a summers evening will catch fish on the Slaney, sparsely dressed flies work better for me I never had much luck with the Scandinavian type flies or monkies , that's not to say they don't work, it's alot of trial and error if your starting to fly fish, it's more important the speed and depth of the fly than the fly itself.
Its alot of trial and error.
You can fish Solosboro, its about 3 miles up from Enniscorthy. Day tickets available in Danny angling store in town. Last year I had trouble getting them however as they are not well organised.Does anyone have, or know anyone that has a map showing the beats/clubs/ownership for fishing on the Slaney
I'm fairly familiar with above Clohamon, but would like to know more about the stretch from Enniscorthy to Clohamon
