Salmon and Sea Trout Anglers who fished during the 2021 season are being asked to please return their logbooks and any unused gill tags.

Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI) is encouraging salmon and sea trout anglers to return angling logbooks (setting out their fishing and catch record) and any unused gill tags from 2021 licences.

Under the Wild Salmon and Sea Trout Tagging Scheme, anglers can return these in one of three ways:

  1. Using the postage pre-paid business return envelope that was supplied at the time of licence purchase (preferred option).
  2. Posting the logbook and unused gill tags to the IFI office address that is displayed on their licence or logbook.
  3. Scanning and emailing logbook and licence documents to salmonlogbookreturn@fisheriesireland.ie (please scan all sides of documents, including continuation pages, to ensure that the licence names and number can be correctly linked to the logbook).

On average, 70% of anglers in Ireland return their logbooks and these returns provide vital information regarding the status and management of our wild Atlantic Salmon and Sea Trout stocks into the future.
