Apparently "someone" has been dumping rubbish in the river at the Forgetown bridge again. I'm told that two trailer loads were put in last week and one was taken away by a flood. I've reported this environmental vandalism to the authorities before and they promised that they would look into it. I think they're maybe as likely to deliver as Santa is of winning the Grand National on Shergar. I'll keep an eye out but it would be helpful if others will do the same.Have we any legal advice as to what to do if we catch the dumper actually at this activity?

i see the river agency are destroying our rivers again with there diggers, y/day the 30th july i saw a digger at the grange river at curran on the tobermore road below hawes farm, i stoped and asked what they were doing and i was told they were just patching the rampers up thet had fell away, i asked them were they going to touch the river itself an they said no just the rampers, but i took a walk down today the 31st and they told lies once again, sum over hangin branches wich gave cover for trout have been cut away wich is leavin no cover now, there is 3 parts wich the digger has taken gravel from the bed and slaped it on the ramper and because of that it has left the river wider in parts  and shallower, they said they definately would not touch the river bed at all but they did wich realy enoys me.
Paul we will have to look into this.We were told they were doing bank protection and fixing the rampers.

The competition report for The Watterson Cup fished for on Monday the 2nd of July. Another very good turn out with 4 juniors and 23 seniors turning up.

i caught my first salmon of the year this evenin around 8oclock at the picnic area stretch at curran on the worm, pure bar of silver of about 4 to 5lb, cedric lamont an ivor bowman were there to witness me taking hook out carefully reviveing it an she swam away, great feeling to know that one day that fish could produce for fish like itself and this c/r is the best method to do so.
