Last day of the 2022 Salmon season. Got up, put my waders on and walked the dog. That’s the sort of morning it is in Foxford..Wet and windy. It is actually like we went straight into the middle of winter, wind ,rain and pitch black outside. All that been said there’s something special about a walk in the rain, specially when one hasn’t done it in a while. I think its going to ease of later so it will probably be an ok day along the river. The rain falling now will not have an effect on levels before this evening. At the moment its at 0.36m at Ballylahan bridge. With this change in weather there will be some fish taken today. Spinning will be the best method. For anyone heading out, wrap up well and Tight Lines. From P.J and I, a big thank you all for your support throughout the season. We will continue with the blog on Fridays and ill keep you up to speed on life in the west of Ireland. Michael

  3. We were hoping against hope to get down to Foxford before seasons end, but it just hasn’t been possible. Its many years since we have not fished the Moy in September . However they say ,Absence make the heart grow fonder and we’re already dreaming of next year. In the meantime thanks so much for your assistance both with the daily reports and in the Shop.
    Keep well,Michael and Pj,and thanks again.
    Jimmy and Eddie.

    A l’année prochaine Michael et Pj

  8. After 4 years again to fish for salmon on the Moy. the weather forecast was promising with rain in the last week of September. Unfortunately, it didn’t come until Friday night until around 10:00 on September 30th. and then really violently from 50 cm until Thursday to the current 1.75. I’ve never seen so much water in the Easky as today. the inspector of the fishery told us that no meaningful fishing will be possible before this afternoon. so the last day of the season fell into the water. 2 of our anglers were in east Mayo at the upper car park, but only brown water here. Thank you for the good tips in the last week, maybe it will still work with the pike in Loch Conn. Tight lines for 2023 Michael
