Milford & District Fly Angling Club:

The Milford & District Fly Angling Club is now taking applications for membership for the 2014 season. Current club memberships are now also due for renewal.
Appication forms are available from the IRD offfice in Milford or here at the Lough Swilly Angling Centre.
The new brown trout angling season opened on the 15th of February but the weather conditions have kept away even the hardiest anglers so far. If we get some normal spring weather, the lough should start producing good sport in the next week or two.
The Milford Club would also like to inform all members and indeed visitors that under  IFI legislation, Angling on Lough Fern and the entire Lennon system may  only be done by single barbless hook with bait fishing strictly prohibited !
In the interest of conservation of the very precious wild brown trout, the Milford club would like to ask anglers to only retain a maximum of 2 brown trout over 11” per day on Lough Fern.
