A cool fresh day in Foxford. Water levels although falling are still high, 0.9m at Ballylahan Bridge. There has been very little angling activity so far this season and it will probably be March before things start to move.
Its been a rough few days, strong wind, a lot of rain and pretty cold as well. As you can imagine there has been very little angling activity. The river was up at 2.3m yesterday and although dropping this morning is still high and coloured. It is early season yet so no panic. We are busy getting the shop in shape for the season ahead, making a few changes and getting lots of new stock in.
It was Probably the mildest winter we ever had and then its snows on Opening Day. Well at least its open and we can now get back to “Normal” life. Very few anglers out on the Moy yesterday although the water is in nice condition. I saw a Picture on the internet of Robert Gillespie and his client with a beautiful Springer from Delphi, hopefully a sign of things to come. We will be updating here for the rest of the season so please save it to your favourites and tell your friends. Tight Lines
I have a feeling it will be a slow start today. I took a stroll around the town last night and it was “party mode” :). Today is the final day of what was an interesting season. A great spring run with good fishing, a summer we will never forget with record low water conditions, a good back end and generally a nice finish to the season. Fish runs were good but as we always say its about what makes it to spawn, I feel confident. From a business point of view it was the most difficult year for many for the tackle trade in general and a lot of shops did not make it. We are fortunate that we have a good customer base and You are good to us. We appreciate the support and say Thank You for that. We look forward to seeing you again in 2019. keep an eye on the website throughout the winter we hope to work on and improve it.
A dry cool morning in Foxford. Water levels are good and the water is in nice condition for all methods. During the past week Fly spin and prawn have been the most productive methods. This is likely to be the case for the weekend. It will be a busy weekend and anyone looking for accommodation in Foxford would be well advised to book it very soon.
