Another season gets underway today on the River Moy. After a torturous season last year due to lack of fish and water, anglers will be hoping for much better results in 2015. As you can imagine water is not scarce at the moment but fish will be. As per norm, I would expect the first fish of the season to be caught behind the boxes in Ballina whenever the conditions become suitable.
Up stream in the East Mayo Anglers stretch a fish could be expected in mid to late March. Unfortunately the last two seasons have failed to produce a March fish on this stretch. Hopefully this trend can be reversed. I would normally begin my own campaign in early April on the Moy but a trip or two to the Drowse may occur in March if reports are tempting.
Tight-lines for the coming season and I will just leave you for now with a selection of photos taken during the close season.
