Well, we're now into May and the excitement SHOULD have been building ahead of the International Motorcycle Road Racing Season.
The Irish Season should have got underway last weekend with the Cookstown 100 and the Tandragee 100 was to take place today. Then, all eyes would have turned to the...
Was watching the program about Usan on B.B.C. i player about the end of there netting operation. People here and elsewhere were doing there nut about the fish they were killing. It is a pity that they did not limit themselves when it was low water. What got me thinking about them was that the...

Just been informed that my fishing on one of the Tweed beats has cancelled for April, the estate office has been kind and offered the reservation will be kept for me next year. I hope that all the estates will follow suit or refund the dosh. Good on the Hirsel.
Hi, it’s my first season salmon fishing although I’ve fly fished for trout most of my life, hoping to catch at least one salmon this year ?
I’ll mostly be fishing the TAS water on the tyne.
Thanks for having me ??
Well with opening day less than a month away I thought it was time to open a new Tywi thread.

Been seeing a lot of big fish pictures on Facebook recently, most from Russia.
Nearly everyone looks like it has a touch of the red belly disease we had last year.
Is it a new phenomenon over there, or is that where it's come from?
What does everyone else think?
This is a copy of my most successful 'green' fly.
My dad brought me some flies from a shop in Donegal Town in the early 2000s. This was one of them and caught me four grilse in a day in July that same year.
I haven't used one since but might be tempted to try this one at some stage this season.
I'm taking the boss for a week in Normandy during July as she kindly "allowed" me to have 6 weeks on the Findhorn this year. By a stroke of good fortune (?) I have discovered that we will be in the hot spot for French sea trout fishing. It is too good an opportunity to miss so I tried to...

I know, this is a salmon fishing forum but I have very little confidence that I will endure yet another harsh year of salmon fishing. I love river fishing but I cant see the hobby lasting with the constant blank days. I had 1 mad hour on the Blackwater with 4 fish, 99 hours with nothing.
Last night i attended my local fishing associations AGM,and as the room filled up i said to my mate that there was not much hope for the future as the average age of those attending was probably over 60,with only 1 or 2 under 30.OK older folks are more likely to attend an AGM than the younger...
What would be your favourite time of year?
For me it’s got to be Spring, everything bursting into life, the start of the fishing season ‘proper’. And the best sign for me is the arrival of the Sand martins. Won’t be too long now...
