well folks it drawing to a close, those people who have not reported their catch to myself will most certainly put them selves in contention for the spoon there isnt long left now so you could still be lucky ! anyhows on a more serious note i was at the weir today not an awfull lot of fish going but i did see more than enough diseased fish which isnt a good sign considering the salmon still have a couple of months left before spawning hopefully this isnt going to be a regular occurrence  tight lines for the remainder of the some what short couple of days !

Just a quick thanks to Tommy for another season of well run competitions - good craic and informal, and an excellent opportunity to meet other 'older and wiser' members for fishing tips and river geography. Tommy puts a lot of work into this each year and has clearly shown that he is always the best man for the job! Well done Tommy - keep up the hard work ;-)

It was a great to see so many children and there parents at our open day on Saturday at Tobermore Ponds.
I would like to express my apprecation to all the members who helped to get the ponds ready for the Open day,also to the members who turned up on the day to make our programme go like clockwork.
The Open Day is very important to promote angling to our young people.
The excitment on the faces of those children when they caught a fish speaks for itself.            
We couldnt have picked a better day as the weather was like summer.
Thanks again to all who organised duck race, Falconery display,casting competition.
Marty D for the cooking,Fly tying,The ladies who made Tea,and anyone who helped in any way,to many names to mention.
Tight lines P Maguire

How wonderful to hear of the otters in the river and how great it is to observe all the wildlife along the Moyola.....but please keep the locations secret and not published on the website - not everyone wants to just watch and enjoy - some have more sinister desires on the wildlife!

John.
i have had quite a lot of reports of otters this year. i was entertained on a couple of nights this year below Castledawson by a young family of otters who were very inquisitive. Joey had told me that he caught two Dollaghan one night just as the same otters swam around the pool. The same thing happened to me, i caught a Dollaghan just seconds after seeing and hearing the young otter.
i have seen them around Ballynahone also.
Definately a great indicator of the healthy status of the river.
i just wish it was as easy to catch a salmon as it was to spot otters.
