It was tough going for George Handley and his party last week at Fort William on the Munster Blackwater they but managed to land 5 salmon, keeping just one.

George Handley with his 8lb fish off the Castle Beat in these challenging conditions.

Steve Earl from the U.K also had 4 fish for his week also keeping one fish. James Cerklin and his family had a cracking few days with 4 fish with 2 on fly. James also had a great evening at the sea trout landing 10 from half pound to 3lbs all released.

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.
