Paul Whelan Fort William Estate reports that the dull weather and threat of rain brought on a bite yesterday…

Water levels are very low now but fish are starting to go on the take. Simon Cassidy had a grilse of 3lbs and 6 sea trout yesterday all off the Castle beat and 2 more fish were lost off the Glenmore beat on fly.

A bit of a change with the cloud cover so may it continue.

Fort william will be holding an open weekend 28th July!

Andrew Ryan from Clonanav fly fishing & Kieran Conlon from the Guideline Pro Team will be doing a casting clinic and demo.  A great chance to learn or to improve your casting for FREE!!

BBQ on the day. Start at 10am and the whole fishery will be available.

Go fishing…

Flowing through Cork and Waterford, in the south east of Ireland, the river Blackwater is most famous for it’s salmon fishing. Fort William Fishery has 5 beats on the river, which include stretches particularly suited to flyfishing. Our beats offer a wide variety of water, suitable for both beginners and the more experienced fishermen. In summer we have also good numbers of sea trout. On the estate there is  two self-catering cottages and tackle/freezer room. Whether you like fishing for salmon or fly fishing for sea trout, Fort William will meet all your game angling requirements and much more.
