in reply to Ciaran Bradley, I was first introduced to fishing using a worm cas it was easy an versatile method to use and safe to use as u could stand on the riverbank to fish rather than to wade the water when I started fishin when I was 7 years old, im 34 now and my grandfather who learnt me this method is no longer with me but he passed this onto me and its a skill and just remember no matter what method of fishing you are doing together we are all fishermen no matter what age size shape colour or religion so no finger can be pointed at any one angler for what method they fish, enuff said.

Would it be fair to say that most people different methods of fishing some favour one over another, I''m not against any type of method as for worming how many children that are introduced into fishing use the worm to start with and the. Progress ? As for prawning it keeps anglers on the river in low water conditions that are able to detect pollution / poaching when the fly anglers are watching John Wilson reruns as for an education lesson come down to Carnroe any Friday afternoon and see how many fish are tortured by the prawn

Yes willy prawning most fish are easy to unhook,but the reason for the banning is cut down the methods less fish may be caught in turn cuts down the stress ib the fish ti have strong well able fish come spawning time,i take it you are against worm,prawn etc being banned?and you are part of the ni salmon nets,so u want more.fish ib the river and throw every thing bar the kitchen sink at them to catch them doesnt add up and
Could i book an "education "lesson with you..                                                        
    
o salmon nets, tway

Obviously you are not educated with the fishing on the lower bann kearn because if you where you would know that it''s a low water fishery and has produced more fish to the fly than the prawn and that all fish are returned weather or not they have been taken on the fly or prawn so your statement carries no weight in my opinion as for the method of prawning it is undoubtably the safest cleanest method to return a fish with less stress than any other method as any angler knows would like to hear your views on this if you like

if all worm shrimp etc fishing is banned this would bring down club member numbers and there wouldnt be the funds needed to keep the river in top shape!

I am content to use fly for 95% of my fishing but there are places or conditions where this is impossible or at the least very difficult. There are people who for specific reasons are not fly fishermen. This may be age or health related. The debate about methodology is not a simple one. As a matter of fact I loathe shrimping and would be delighted to see it gone but I realise that there may be a counter arguement.

The proposed banning of worm,prawn and shrimping in my opinion is a good thing,we are only catching up with rivers world wide that have stopped these methods years ago,i just hope this is the same for all ie the salmon fishiers down the bann were salmon get tortured in low water by prawners.

My father has lost a young ewe lamb around 6 months of age.We have sheep grazing along the grange river towards the moyola at the small bridge at curran. We think she may have went into the river but it has been so low. My father and I have searched for hours and cannot find her. If any sightening of her (living or dead) please let us know, any help would be much appreciated. We lost her on the evening of 14th august and cant stop thinking what could have happened to her . please telephone 028 79644493 if you can help
