SILVERBAR
HI, I have been game fishing and hunting all of my life.My father took me Hare coursing at six years
 old.I used to keep Lurchers,Terriers and Ferrets.I know train and breed Labrador Retrievers.I have fished rivers in Ireland and Scotland.My favourite Salmon River is the River Moy at Ballina Co Mayo. I have fished it from an early age as my father used to bring me down.I used to b&b in Foxford but have since built a house beside the river. I get a couple of days on the world famous Ridgepool! This location is great for Fly when conditions are right. But mother nature cannot be controlled. I am a waterkeeper on the River Moy at Paddens pool stretch Attymass,Bonnifinglas, a great bit of water with world famous pools The Woodpool,Paddens pool and The FLAG which is my favourite ! A great resting pool for wild Atlantic Salmon. Catching a fresh run silverbar sea liced Salmon is one of lifes great Achievements!!! This year i hope to spend more time on the river as most of the work on my house is near completion! The people in both Ballina and Foxford are very friendly and extremely helpful. I hope to add a few fishing photos this year of friends and guests.
