Just added this as an extra page to the Fisheries Directory:

http://www.maggotdrowning.com/irishfisheries.htm

It's looking a little bare at the moment so if you know any details of Irish Fisheries can you send them in using the 'Submit a Fishery' form at the bottom of that page.

Cheers, Dave

Gents,
I will resist the temptation to ping you on the "paddy" jibe.

Suffice to say that Eire is a shortened version of Eireann. This is Irish/Gaelic for Ireland. Just like Hibernia is the Latin for Ireland.

Enough gospel...down to business.

You are looking for information on fisheries in Ireland [:)]
I assume this means formal commercial ventures rather than a details of the stretches on canals, rivers and lakes.

There are very few commercial fisheries in Ireland...I know of maybe two more and will fill in the details.
Most of the fishing is lake, river and canal and is 99% free (except where you cross onto a fluff chuckers stretch). We have very little carp, and the only stretches of them that I know of are on the canals.

I guess it just shows how undeveloped the sport is over here. The downside is that with farmyard run off/effluent seeping into the water courses you can get large stretches of water laid waste for a few years, although thankfully that is a rarity. You also get many a day with total blanks..but then sitting in Belle Island on the Erne I have pulled out 10 (8 lb)bream an hour for 6 hours and packed up because the only weight I could handle at that stage was a Guinness....or three.

Regards


Once More with feeling
