A group of nine Visiting fly anglers from Jersey staying at Mount Falcon Castle arrived for a weeks fishing for Pike and Salmon fishing in the Ballina/Foxford area. The weather leading up to, and around the time of their visit had not been the best so the anglers had to contend with low water conditions, easterly breezes and sunshine. The group tried Deep seafishing, Estury Seatrout fishing, pike and salmon.
Three of the group Ross Bannerman, Stuart Perchard, and Clive Dunford fished mainly for pike on the fly. Around 12 pike were caught, but there were no big fish among them.
As there are no pike in Jersey and their first time pike fly fishing was such fun the group are planning a return trip next year to try there luck again.
