Markus Müller, Angling Information Manager with IFI Ballina office reports from the River Moy:

Yet, another slow week for anglers on the Moy system, with only 130 salmon reported bringing the yearly total, so far, to 5,619.

Some of this week’s catches included two salmon for German visitor, Manfred Müller on prawn from the Coolcronan Fishery. Also on Coolcronan, Manfred’s countryman, Dominik Weber, had two fish; one on prawn and one on spinner. Despite the difficult conditions the East mayo water provided some reasonable fly fishing during the week. Successful anglers included: Alain Bouvet, France, with a 6 lbs. fish, Matthias Engels, Germany with two small grilse and Ralf Hemmersbach, also Germany, with a 3 lbs. and a 6 lbs. grilse.
