A little bit late today but better late than never. Good morning from a dry and cold Foxford. We have had a big drop in temperature over the past few days with a cold breeze, it looks like this will continue into the weekend. No reports of anymore Salmon taken on the river but it is still very early and with the restrictions there are very few anglers out fishing. Better times ahead.  For anyone who is missing the Moy and feels that they are missing out, I took a quick video clip of the river a few minutes ago. It’s still high but coming into better order. A lot of Kelts splashing about, a good sign for the future. Trout fishing on Lough Conn has been pretty good but again the weather is not ideal and it’s not for the faint hearted. I will wait for a definite rise in temperature with a nice SW breeze.

On the fishing tackle front Brexit appears to be having an effect. We received one rod from the UK last weekend to which there was added 109 euro in charges, hard to remain competitive and make profit on that one! Needless to say we are in negotiations for better terms. We have a lot of stock arriving at the moment and are busy behind the scenes preparing for the season ahead. Judging by phone calls and emails we are receiving it will be a pretty busy season once it kicks off.

Work is continuing along the riverbank south of Foxford. In line with regulations the cutting has finished for this year but the tidy up continues. The plan is to do more of this work over the next couple of years. This will open up a lot of spots that have been inaccessible for a long time.
