02 August: Well done to Stephen Hayes hooking and landing 2 fish today at Ballyduff Bridge one of 4lbs and another of 6lbs both on spinner. I had a lovely fish of around 6lbs on a 8ft hexagraph fly rod something I’ve been told only a few can do…  Water level is now up 3ft and quite dirty should be good in the coming days.

Ballyduff Bridge Salmon Fishery

Ballyduff Bridge fisheries control a number of beats of the Munster Blackwater. The Ballyduff Bridge beat is almost a mile long offering a huge variety of water and is particularly suited to fly fishing. Upstream near the village of Ballyhooley (a few miles outside the town of Fermoy, Cork) we have two beats. The Ballincurrig Beat is one of the most beautiful locations along the river and has an excellent piece of fly water flowing into a deep pool. Just downstream on the opposite bank we have a short but productive beat, called Magners. This beat fishes also well in high water.
