Sent off the licence renewal today to renew, took me a wee while to justify the fee plus rod licence but got sorted and sent off fee as described on this site, sent back saying need an extra £10. Can someone tell me what the extra £10 is for and also how does this encourage people to join our  sport of fishing? Seriously considering not joining next year, catch and release, not even one salmon per year and extra £10, not good......
Sean everyone knows that if you do not pay by the 31st of March there is a £10 penalty put in place.
This has been the case for years.
The membership for the Moyola is very cheap compared to other rivers and as for Catch & Release i think you will find that most club members are in favour of it. If you look back at the guestbook to early march you will see a comment from the Membership Secretary. Can I just remind members renewing their club fees that paying after the 31st March incurs a £10 penalty. If possible payment before this date will insure that normal fees apply. Current fee amounts can be found on the web site under the day ticket and membership tab. Also if paying by cheque could you please make the cheque payable to Moyola Angling Association. Many thanks for your co-operation. Brian Bigmore, membership officer.
He put another comment on towards the end of March.

The competition report for the Glenview Perpetual Cup.  Once again the river was in flood and did not suit the Fly Angler for the second competition in a row.  1st place was Brian Bigmore on the worm, 2nd place was Stanley Aspinall on the worm and 3rd place was Patsy Harkin on the fly.  The Meat at Regan Junior Cup was won by Joseph Spiers and in 2nd place was our new Junior Lady Angler Eimear McClenaghan - well done.  The league table has Ruth Arrell and Stanley Aspinall both on 32 pts, Tommy McGrath on 28 pts, Patsy Harkin on 26 pts, Barry Diamond on 24 pts and Wesley McClenaghan on 23 pts.  Our next competition the Wilbert Pickering Cup is on Monday 10th June starting @ 7pm.  Hopefully the water will be in better shape.  Tight lines.

Was up at the Weddell recently fishing. First time for a few years.
Had forgot how beautiful and mostly unspoilt a stretch of river this is. Must compliment and thank all the persons who put up great stiles , safer car parking , clean up, seats etc. Will name noone in particular in case I leave someone out-- but brilliant job

It was a pleasure to help you Jack.
The smile on those childrens faces when they got touching the fish, which were all returned was just amazing.

Very many thanks to Matthew Devlin, Philip Maguire and Adrian McKay for giving up their time this morning to give some pupils from Kilronan Special School a great time catching rainbows at the ponds. This experience is invaluable for our young people as it something they would not normally get the opportunity to do. Thanks also to Maurice Dorrity for calling in to give some support.
Let us hope we can continue to provide such opportunities for these young people.

The Moyola Angling Club went to Lough Fern in Co Donegal last weekend. There was not a lot of excitement on the fishing front, but for Seamus Donnelly, Tom Davies, Robert Paul,and Ruth Arrell were lucky to get competition wins. We had five experience boat men (Adrain, Mervyn, Robert, Barny, and big Tom) who all ran out of petrol, a lot of blaming went on,I hear even Philip got blamed. Our only lady angler of the weekend apparently fell in, i did not see this but at lest 10 men  told me this, she blamed Michael Brunton and Kenny Donnelly for flying past her in there boat and making a big wave in front of her. Someone also got wet as a life jacket was left back blow up, but not one man blamed another man, Ruth, thats it lads stick together. Christy and wee Tom broke there rods, I dont think fish were involved in this instance, Seamy D won the heaviest bag and the pairs competition along with a very red faced Patsy Harkin and it was not sunburn. By winning the pairs competition and taking the money of Sean Henry, Seamy D done a semi strip in his excitement. Wee Stanley was not his usual self and Patsy was not able to fulfill the gig.Seamy D went to bed at 8.00pm and sleep till 8.00am had his breakfast and then drove off with out the competition secretary, his room mate, boat partner, and his gillie who put him over his fish on Sunday, they are still not speaking. Our chairman Sean Henry once again took advantage of his position hitched a ride on Michaels boat all weekend then on Sunday evening when the competition was over he left Michael and Kenny standing with their boat while he had himself a nice cup of tea, whats new there Sean.The highlight of the weekend was the B,B,Q that Bernie and Philip prepared for everyone on Sunday evening.Finely a big thank to the Milford & District Angling Club all there help in making it an enjoyable  weekend as usual. Tight lines.
