Students watch as Glenda casts
Spey casting instruction

On Saturday Glenda hosted a number of beginner spey casters on an Introduction to Spey Casting Course which was very well received.

Glenda writes in her latest newsletter:

This week we had two Salmon caught in two days and four Salmon lost.  We thought that Summer was here with temperatures of 16 degrees and we were fishing is shirt sleeves.  The weather is back to normal again today with overcast sky and soft rain.

The river is at a wonderful height for fishing.  Anna (my daughter) and I are leaving for the EWF Show in Germany this evening and will be back on Monday.

To book fishing over the weekend please contact Noel on 085 7220923.

Blackwater Salmon Fishery

Blackwater Salmon Fishery has 3 beats downstream of the weir and 2 upstream of the weir. Blackwater Salmon Fishery offers fishing on approximately 5 miles of the river Blackwater. The fishing is spread throughout the middle section of the river to offer good sport throughout the fishing season. Due to the location of the beats, fishing can still usually be offered in low or high water.
