Luke Dervan booked a day on the River Moy’s Cloongee fishery to kick off his 2024 salmon season. Luke, from Tipperary, travelled to Mayo with his dad, Brian, and found the river to be in good condition for the day’s fishing. It was just as well that Luke had the experienced elder close at hand, as Brian was soon called into action to net a pristine 13lbs sea-liced bar of silver that took Luke’s worm bait. Not a bad way to begin the salmon season at all.

If you would like to book a day on the Cloongee fishery, buy your salmon licence or buy a permit for any of the other fisheries managed by Inland Fisheries Ireland, you can secure your permit via our online shop at
