Sean if you leave a fish lying on its side for a while it will turn white but there is nothing wrong with it. A trout this early should be great eating.
Name: Sean Osborne
Disappointed, brought the fish out for filleting and he had went white down one side, not good, must have been an auld boy or something, been around too long. No good for eating. Any other explanations?

Thanks to the passer by who landed a decent 2lb trout for me today using his net. His timing was perfect, would probably have lost it if he was not there. Must get a new one. Cheers anyway.

Dropped a wee cheap net outside Castledawson, it was at the bridge on the main Belfast Road. If anyone finds it let me know. Cheers

Great to see lovely clean fish in the river so early - surely the efforts of all involved in the no salmon nets campaign have contributed to this. I have never caught a salmon this early before in the season and it's very encouraging. A chance is all these magnificent creatures need to make a come back - great feeling to release them again unharmed.
Well done Brian.

Just witnessed the first catch and release of the season at Castledawson. A lovely silver salmon around 4 to 5lb weight caught by Roly Stockman and his grandson.
Congratulations to Roly for his determined effort to revive and release the salmon. It proves that with gentle handling and patience fish can be returned safely.

Dont forget this Sunday 10th is the open day in the Moyola estate, 2pm to 6pm.. We need all the fly casters and and those who can tie flies to help out as much as possible. There is a duck race so we need a few people to take waders and landing nets.

The competition report for the Glenview Perpetual Cup fished for on Monday evening, This turned out to be a lovely evening to be on the river the water was very low and should have favoured the fly angler as the trout were showing in great numbers throughout the river, but  once again the (BAIT) men pulled it off again with Barry Diamond and Philip Maguire in joint first place,in 2nd place was Patsy Harkin on the fly, and in 3rd place was Stanlay Aspinall on the fly. It was nice to see two lady anglers Tanya Steele and new member Ruth Arrell in our competition tonight.The leader board is changing all the time, Barry Diamond still in front on 43 points, Philip Maguire moves in to 2nd place on 40 points, myself on 35 points, Patsy Harkin moves into 4th place on 34 points, and Brian Bigmore is on 32 poimts. Our next conpetition the Wilbert Pickering cup is on Monday the 11of June at 7.00pm. There is an open competition at Lough Fea on the 9th of June, also the Mid Ulster and the Moyola angling clubs are holding there anual Charis Charity open on Saturday the 23th of June at Lough Fea both competition start at 2.00pm and finish at 6.00pm, these are good days out and you have a good chance of hooking a big rainbow. Tight lines.

I would like to say a big thanks to Brian Bigmore and Seamus Donnelly and all others who helped to organise the event to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Moyola Angling Association. Brian spoke very well and has a great memory. Seamus and Willie cooked the burgers very well which Tommy supplied. It was great to see anglers and their families to gather and an opportunity for people to catch up socially.
Many thanks to Joanne and the committee of Moyola Park Football Club for looking after us so well on the evening.
Thanks to all who made a positive contribution to making the evening a very pleasant one.
