Michael Flanagan reports on angling related news from around the midlands…

Brosna cleaning

Last week we mentioned the Brosna River was getting its annual cleaning. Some people were concerned about the amount of silt going down the Brosna and eventually settling in Ennell.Its not possible to clean the river without some bottom disturbance, and silt traps were in place, which worked well. I actually would be a little more concerned about the amount of rubbish dumped into the Brosna, and building up at the mouth of the river at Butlers Bridge. Next time I will photograph some of the items that make their way to Ennell, it will be certainly be an eye opener to some readers.

Opening day specials

Here in the Midlands our trout season will start on March 1st and local tackle dealer David O’Malley is gearing up for the 2015 season. David has some fantastic opening day specials on rod & reels, and also has a huge selection of lures just waiting to catch fish. Ok we anglers also get caught from time to time, and when we go into a Fishing Tackle shop we are like kids in a candy store. Soon we will have another Angling center here in Mullingar, watch this space for more details.
