Regarding dumping in the rivers-it's a good time to "bend ears" of politicians about the disgraceful attitude of a few and the total immunity they seem to have from punishment. I questioned a pair of canvassers a few years ago about poaching which they initially thought was a joke. By the time they left my doorstep they knew it was a big issue for me. It may be too late for this election but surely we could organise a situation whereby each political party should have to outline their attitude to the environment in general,  rivers in particular, poaching and the application of the law to these miscreants who abuse that which we love.

i seen some one has dumped a washing machine at the seven arches there is a lot off dumping going on around the top end off the river witch would need till be clean up . i think the club should put up signs at these places so that people are aware that the club is taking an interest in keeping it clean and tidy.

In first place was our chairman Philip Maguire with a nice bag of Trout ,in 2nd place was Stanley Aspinall.
And in 3rd place was Barry Diamond.
There was 10 seniors and 6 juniors out today, our best junior was Joseph Spiers with too fine Trout and Daniel Maguire with one good Trout.
Our next competition is the Gribbin House cup for seniors and the Ulster Bank Junior cup for the juniors on the 16th of April at 10;30am,so no excuse for Adrian and wee John Mc Kay coming on the wrong day next time out,
Tight lines.

This year we would like to take out a project on the Glengomna stream.
Working along with Teddy Roughan D C A L we hope to put some new spawning beds/Nursery pools in place in an attempt to bring Salmon back up our tributaries to spawn.
There is a lot of work which we as anglers can do to help get this work underway.
Next Saturday 9th April id like a few of us to get together and start cutting a few bushes to get this project started.
All those interested in this project please meet at Straw Chapel car park 10 am and Mervin Finlay will give us directions.
So bring your wellies/bowsaw/briar knives etc and hopefully we'll make a good start.
