The Bandon Angling Association writes that the sun has set on yet another season on the Bandon River. It seems like only yesterday club members were enjoying soup and sandwiches after the opening day cast! Fishing was quiet for the final couple of weeks with no major run of fresh salmon materialising and resident fish remaining very dour.
