Was down sunday moring and withinin 5 mins i saw 4 fish show before i even cast!
then i got a nice sea liced grilse in clonmel here about 7lb (not often you catch fish in clonmel with sea lice on them)
there is a great run of fish at the moment according to anglers of carrick of suir, and the guys in the drift nets arent helping but not affecting the fishing on a bad scale either
water has risin another bit overnight with rain up the country sunday night, its a very dark brown colour but will be good fishing for the week none the less as theyre moving up fast
Yes the net is a purse shape the tide fishes the net it like pulling a large open bag and when fish go in they snap close. A drift net hangs like a curtain and drift it doesn't has to be lifted until it is full as fish get stuck in mesh the worst net off all is the steak net which hangs straight like a curtain from bank to bank as tide is coming in these are doing the most damage in my opinion on river.snap nets are the only legal nets on the river Suir with a 20 tag limits a licence which are due to come of next Tuesday.
Now the nets are finish we expecting fishing to pick up.just to let people know day tickets are available on carrick on suir club water 30 Euro in August 70 euro sept a limits of 6 rods in August and 2 in sept .its from 7am till 6pm spin and fly only.these new arrangement have been made for tourist and to permote angling on the river Suir .no 0863493660
was in thurles Saturday and could not get over how polluted the river looked .no one seems to notice the scum and sewage on the suir ,later in the day I was down stream of kilsheelin bridge and once again what looks like raw sewage was flowing into the river ....
was it flowing in from a run-off? if so it should be reported
the river is very bad down by 2nd bridge in carrick-on suir the sh*t that floats in the tidal water you wudnt see it in india
something is goin seriously wrong somewhere, but with most farmers spreading slurry after the sileage they just wash the tanks out in the river afterwards its a disgrace and a shame really
