Well it's the end of another season and I have to say it has been one of the best I can remember. Our river is a credit to all those who have a genuine love for it and continue to offer so much personal time and effort to ensure its continued vitality, from the chair, committee, NSN to even non members who turn up when required and expect nothing in return. May she and her inhabitants run free over the closed season but lets continue to keep a wee eye on her over the next few months. Roll on 2013.

just a thought but i think ive already had a debate on here about this same issue the fact still remains that the river has a more than healthy stock of wild browns maybe under sized for a big part but without taking any fish out i fear in the long term the fish will get even smaller i would how ever agree that the larger fish should be put back that way  they are there for other anglers to test their skills to catch them as for smaller ones i would encourage a cull on them there is only a certain amount of feeding therefore competing for the same amount of food so therefore more fish = smaller fish

Hi Ciaran, you should come to the next committee meeting and bring your research and rationale forward for discussion so we can get a collective view. Better than on a guest book.

Wild brown trout in rivers,on reading a document on this and seeking advice on angling for these fish it was very widely accepted that wild brown trout should not be taken.Instead what i think as a club what we should do is to introduce catch an release on wild brown trout or decrease the bag limit or introduce infertile stocked trout which could be marked to identify them from the wild fish,so when we are pleasure fishing or competition fishing we can take less or no wild fish and take only stocked trout.I hope this could be talked about at the next commitee meeting.We have introduced catch and release for salmon we should look into our wild trout also.Very tight lines ciaran.

The competition report for the Gerard McLarnon Memorial Cup This was our last competition of the season, in 1st place was Brian Bigmore bait fishing he also grabed the heaviest Dollaghan at 2lb  2oz to lift the Robin  McKnight rose bowl for the first time, in 2nd place was Philip Maguire on the fly , in 3rd place was Rusty Steele with a wee Dollaghan at 1lb 8oz, well done Rusty. The league table finish up with Barry Diamond on 115 points, Philip Maguire on 104, Tommy Mcgrath on 102, Brian Bigmore on 86 points, Patsy Harkin on 68 points, and Stanley Aspinall finishing on 60 points. All in all the competition were very well attended all season with some good Trout throughout the year weighed in. So another season all most over but the way this one went it will not be long before the next one will starts. Tight Lines for the rest of the season.

The end of another years "competitions" for the club but in reality its just a goods days craic and of course bad manners at the weigh in. Just want to say a big thanks to Tommy for another greats years success and well run outings. Also to Philip whos never far behind the scenes taking names and being early with the kettle on etc. Can't wait now until March - if the world hasn't ended before that!!! Tight lines for the last couple of weeks. Have never seen the river so vibrant in my experience and a big thanks to all the club men responsible for this.
