Just herd some bad news from Irelands Barnaggrow lake there has been a big fish kill 5,000 mature bream, roach, hybrids dead. They are not sure what the cause is yet but some say the hot weather was the problem. We have fished this lake a good few times and had some great catches of hybrids and roach some of the roach going to over 1.5 lbs. Its a big lake so hopefully it can recover from this :cry:

Hoping to go over in early September to Mohill area.Usually fish the Carrick festival around that time but not this year it will be pleasure fishing for as many hours as I can fit in a day.🙂
Spotted this on the Inland Fisheries Ireland’s angling update email today…

“Finally, a post-Brexit note for British anglers planning to travel across the Irish Sea in future to fish. It is no longer possible for anglers from Great Britain (and other Third Countries) to bring live baits (maggots, worms etc) in a personal capacity. All future importation must be done in accordance with the DAFM protocols: Import procedures for live invertebrates for fishing bait.

For non-live fishing bait (i.e. an Animal By-Product product), the permitted weight allowance per passenger is 2kg.”

any of you lads know where you can buy decent red worms from please yorkshire area or mail order thanks
You will very lucky to find anywhere that sell red worms, its just dendra's, or lobworms.
If you have any allotments near you, then go and ask if you can delve into the compost bins.
Or just start your own compost bin if you have some spare garden space.
Good luck in your search.

Glenn has been to Northern ireland a few weeks ago and had a fantastic week, lots of ton plus catches. Im not sure which venues they fished though but right on the border.

Spent the weekend in killeshandra, bumped into a few English anglers fresh off the ferry at the maggot farm shop.
The bream didn't show up in huge numbers but got a few up to 5lb, huge numbers of hybrids in and around the pound mark at killykeen.

They're up about a foot to 18 inches, but have lost the tinge and starting to drop.
Hasn't been much rain this week so should be lower.
Heading back down this weekend again.

Worms direct ie, based near Carrickmacross, trying them this year for our trip 1st September, they have delivery service throughout Ireland, and offer Dendrobaenas and Red Worms.
Also option to collect, which we plan to do on our way from Dublin to Carrigallen
€20.00 per kilo, free delivery over €60.00 for Dendrobaenas.

How's the worms? And any hassle at the ferry with the new regs ?

Booked for the 15th September for 10 days.Staying with a mate near to Mohill Co Leitrim.I can get bait across the road from his house and he has plenty of redworms in a muck heap,they just need digging up.Don’t care too much about catching loads of fish.Would be happy with 20lb a day.I will just be glad to be sat on the bank in Ireland once more.Anyone else over in September?
