In a unique opportunity for anglers, Navan Anglers Association are actively continuing to recruit new members for the coming season (1st. March- 30th. September). One of the clubs newest members is 10 year old Evin Forde who received his club card on March 1st; the opening day of the season, from none other than fly fishing expert and international selling author Peter O’Reilly. Evin spent some time casting a line at Kilcairn Bridge and demonstrated a natural ability as a fly caster.

Applications are now being accepted from all wishing to join the club, particularly from our younger friends. Navan anglers hold extensive fishing rights to almost ten miles of superlative fishing on both the Boyne and the Kells Blackwater.  Club membership has been reduced to €120 for a full season for 2012.  Fly-tying classes, casting demonstrations, competitions and open days are all planned for the coming year.

The club is one of the oldest existing voluntary organisations in Navan and hopes to continue the proud tradition of our predecessors who founded the club in 1953, with the aims of preserving and conserving this wonderful natural amenity.
