Inland Fisheries Ireland’s Dublin Angling Initiative off to good start on both sides of the Liffey

Inland Fisheries Ireland’s Dublin Angling Initiative has kicked off for the 2017 Summer Season with several local schools and youth groups already enjoying fishing lessons and field trips.

Sphere 17 Youth Services from Darndale, Dublin 17 were one of the first groups to take a summer fishing trip with the Dublin Angling Initiative. They travelled to Malahide, North County Dublin, to take a charter boat, Fish & Trips, for a few hours of sea angling. The group spent the evening learning how to fish beside Ireland’s Eye, catching pollock and mackerel. While fishing, they also reported seeing plenty of local resident birds and seals near the island. The fishing trip was one of six over the past month with the group also enjoying lessons in coarse and game fishing.

Meanwhile, Southside youth group Whitechurch Youth Services were also out fishing recently with the Dublin Angling Initiative. They were taken to Courtlough Fisheries, Balbriggan where they were coached in bubble and fly fishing for trout. Participants learned about fish handling and catch and release fishing.
