Young anglers enjoy a day at Delphi

October 5th, 2017 | by

The Moy River Trust brought a number of young anglers to participate in the final day of the season at Delphi, and John O’Connor was there and kindly sent on a report.

Delphi Lodge, a historic fishing lodge now serving as a unique holiday destination in County Mayo, held it’s now annual end of season staff and children’s day on Saturday 30th of September. Local children as well as a group of children from the Mayo area enjoyed a wonderful days fishing in this fabulous fishery and many of them had an experience they’ll never forget while managing to land their first salmon. Michael Wade and his staff then hosted a wonderful outdoor lunch in front of the lodge where everyone got to recall their fishing experiences that morning. To round off the day David Mc Evoy who manages the fishery and estate then demonstrated to the visiting children how the salmon are tagged, recorded and gave a brief demonstration on the lifecycle of salmon and the science used in recording their journey to sea and eventual return. All the salmon taken on the day were ranched fish of hatchery origin, not wild fish.

The Moy River trust would like to thank Delphi for their support in our children’s angling initiative.
