the no worming stated by dcal before end of june to.protect smolts good call but some are saying that u can still fish worms for trout is this the case?if so how do u stop smolts taking the worm while fishing for trout? or am i mistaken on this ruling can someone please clarify or explain the ways to stop smolts taking our worms,i am dumfounded if u can fish worms for trout and are still catching smolts which we are trying to protect"im confused"!.
The rule is clear, nothing has changed for trout fishing. DCAL are the Government body who made these rules.
We as a club have to try and police them.

After viewing your website to obtain a membership form for my son I enjoyed reading your history section however it would be greatly appreciated if you could amend my grandfather''s surname to "Inglis", as it is misspelt. He was a wonderful man and I have fond memories of him fishing, shooting, playing snooker and racing pigeons. A true gentleman, amazing grandfather who respected all and had a great love of the outdoor life. Many thanks for your great work.
Sorry about the misspelling Michelle i will get that fixed asap.

The stream at Polepatrick was running with oil or deisel yesterday evening at about 5.20. It seemed to be clearing a bit by about 5.40. I didn''t contact anyone as I''ve done this in the past and found the experience frustrating and a waste of time and the problem was likely to have gone by the time the authorities sauntered out to look.

The N.S.N Cup was held at Craigmore Fishery last Saturday, with over 30 anglers turning up for what turned out to be a good day for fishing and plenty of craic. A big thanks to Willy Darragh for organizing the competition.The Moyola Club did very well by winning 3 of the prizes. AnthonyMcCormack  won the first fish award, Patsy Harkin won the heaviest fish award, nice to see Patsy win something ,Sean Kelly from Omagh won the overall with 13 Trout and the last Trout. And Gregory Scullion won the Mars bar, same as the wooden spoon.Well done to everyone for a good day.Also a big thanks  to Clare from Craigmore Fishery for all her help throughout the day,And also to Ruth  for providing us with  lovely wee buns.Tight Lines.

I am sorry to raise the issue again but the stream in Polepatrick was running battleship grey yesterday evening, (Sunday 15.12.13).It is somewhat rich that anglers are being asked to sacrifice a lot to preserve fish stocks whilst streams are regularly polluted causing incalculable damage. It seems tthat nobody has responsibility for this. The stream in question is utterly without life!

HO ho ho Happy Christmas from a cold and windy Magherafelt.
Hope Santa is kind to you at Christmas because DCAL haven't been too kind with their proposed new fishing regulations for 2014.
Whatever 2014 brings for you I hope it includes peace and happiness.

Thats grand,my mistake.thought it was in river works,tight lines for 2014.
Name: ciaran bradley
The work parties along the river are a good idea,but i would leave all work parties till febuary at least as fish are spawning at the minute and what we dont need is people walking over freshly made redds and disturbing fish,i hope everyone can see the point im making this is why we have a closed season,all tje best to all ciaran.
This work party at the weekend Ciaran is to cut bushes and clear up timber that has already been cut.
