Thanks as always. I feel a lot more confident for next year now. Already looking forward to a wee trip in spring when, from what I heard, it outfishes all other fisheries ☺

That is sometimes the case on different salmon rivers and lakes/loughs.
Nearly 20years ago me and some very skilled salmon fishing friends fished Barrishoole.
There were salmon jumping around as like mad. Two of them nearly jumped in to our boots.But we didn’t caught a fish at all.

Heading over to fish the Moy for the first time this week on the East Mayo water. Wanting to focus on the fly only stretch between the Gub and Gerraghtys. Would anyone have any advice? Also where would be the best place to park to fish this stretch? I sent an email to them but havnt heard anything back as of yet. Thanks in advance!

Best of luck it is a lovely stretch.

Several options.

1 is to park at the Gub and wade the Gweestion and then fish back down.

Other option is to park up at the various pools. It is a huge distance from Gerraghtys down to the Gub - so I would pick pools along the way depending on if you have any water.

There is parking on the grass verges at Gerraghtys and at various points along the river back towards the Gub.

Your best bet is to have a chat with Jimmy or any of the keepers when you arrive and they will show you on a map where the best place to park.

One of them is normally parked on Ballylahan Bridge before 8am - so you can pull up and have a chat.

Tight lines,

PAC

Planning to go down to East Mayo this weekend myself. The forecast isn't looking good though, with little rain and plenty of sun forecast! It wasn't forecasting this a few days ago :(

You can fish the prawn on Gannons. Don’t fish it myself but see them doing it on this fishery. Tickets from post office in Foxford.

Hi! You can fish the Prawn on the Foxford Fisherys, Gannons, Rinnany, Amstrongs, Byrns, Coolcronan,Attymass. Upstream Bakers only. Good advice at Tiarnans in Foxford. To get help from a local guide is worth the money.
