without getting into a debate about the weir again these fish were not caught above the weir but well below it and would doubt if they had even had tried to acsend it yet yes i agree that fish do use their tail to dig a redd but the underside of the bellie can also get damage in a lot of cases
tight lines

paddy, ive found that a black fury with yellow spots is very good in dropping water and a plain gold or silver size 3 is good in high water. i think you will get them on most mepps and flying c's as well can be good, a wee black one especially.

willy, you say that the dollaghan you caught were "digging about" and had raw flesh on their bellies. this, i guarantee you is damage caused by the weir and nothing to do with the fish digging at gravel. these fish may be sitting on the rough concrete at the weir for a long while before getting over it, its an absolute disgrace that this happens. dollaghan and salmon dig gravel with their tail for a start and there would also be few if any dollaghan thinking of making a redd yet. this happened a lot of fish that i seen last year, both dollaghan and salmon.

can any 1 tell me whats the mepp for dollaghgan
Seamus Donnelly

Most of the Dollaghan are caught on a no. 2 or 3 blue and silver mepp (silver blade with blue spots). But thats probably because most of the anglers on the Moyola use the blue and silver.
Is anyone else willing to share their secret weapon with us???
Name: Seamus Donnelly

Cheers for the advice the other night.
Caught a nice dollaghan this evening on the fly below Castledawson.
Hope this bit of settled weather helps the fishing.

Name: Philip Maguire
just want to say thanks to all who helped out at the ponds on wednesday evening.
we made a good start but it'll still take another couple of evenings to get the place ready for the open day.
we could do with a bit more help, so anyone who can lend a hand please turn up next wednesday evening at 6pm.

i heard this rumour from a few people.
Not sure if there's any truth in it though, but it would certainly explain the lack of fish in our river.
Name: Peter Walls
Is there any truth about a large Russian fishing vessel seen off the irish coastline in recent weeks?.

Name: John Mc Kenna
I was wading down the river above the Forgetown last night and I noticed that there is a ridge of sand on the river bed that was not there a couple of weeks ago. This is slightly worrying in that there must be a lot of sediment coming down, over and beyond the normal, during floods. This would not be a good thing regarding spawning beds.
