Good site. Have fished the east mayo a few times and would love to join the club but cant afford to. Think its a few hundred euro but first have to buy 14 full day tickets .

I also like fishing the cloongee stretch but cant afford paying the daily day tickets either. Does anyone know why they dont do any yearly tickets like other stretches do.

Ill be joining the foxford stretch this season as ive been told that if i live 10mie radious then its only 100euro for the season. im not to far from the stretch and cant wait to get out on my boat on the moy this year. Im hoping to break my 12lb record and heres hoping the next one is in the 20s lol

Yeah, the boat aint that heavy to carry onto the moy and where i fish is deep enough water so wont have any problem with getting stuck anywhere unless i got to some places on the east mayo.

Why did you comment with the confused face. Dont you know people fish from boats in ireland

Surely this has to be a wind up?

I'm not even going to get involved.....

Did you not have all the ins and outs of this explained to you last year on another forum?????

Really? In 40 years of game angling in Ireland I never knew anyone fished from boats, sure I thought those things were magic carpets, thanks for that fulfilling enlightenment
By the way, which moy fishery are launching your magic carpet in?

I see Moyfisher has had his first cast of the year on the river Moy. Should be some interesting reports in the coming days, when the river levels rise's.

Several places where people use boats to fish for salmon in Ireland. I've seen it on the Moy at the Joinings, the Bann, Shannon, Lee and the Munster Blackwater in the tidal stretch. In Scotland, they use a big chain and the gillie pays it out as you go down the best beats while you fish with a double-hander on many of the big salmon rivers. I resume this is about rivers? Plenty of lakes obviously where you can catch salmon from a boat on the fly

I would agree. I think the poster above is having the wind up because i have also seen boats on the moy, just below foxford when i was there a few years ago for a weeks fishing.

I dont know the laws concerning fishing from boats in ireland but id take a guess that its perfectly legal to fish in a river from a boat, infact i would prefer it rather than having to cross fields,clime fences etc.. that and the fact that ive walked through fields before with my son fishing, and the animals werent to happy we were there so we had to do a bolter.

Just as im typing this, i remember stopping at a bridge just outside of foxford(its the east mayo stretch if i remember correctly) and there was a sign saying boats for hire so clearly its possible to have a boat on this river.

As I understand things , its the actual "fishery owners" have the boats , at

eg Foxford and Mount Falcon also in the (Ridgepool for those lacking

mobility usually
).

The only other people who put a boat on the freshwater Moy are the Fishery

Officers and recreational canoeists( who usually respect that its a major game

river). I never heard of an individual angler coming along and launching himself

or herself into a fishery with their own craft.( except poachers of course). I

suspect the fishery owner would have alot to say about the matter.

What would poachers be doing with a boat, sure that would just show what their at. Arent poachers suppose to do it without anyone noticing.

Can you tell me why a fishery owner wouldnt be to happy with someone fishing from a boat. Im not big into my fishing but i would have thought you'd get a better fishing experience having a boat and it would also save you from walking through wet fields with all your kit. IMO i cant see a fishery officer telling you to get off the river if your on a boat, maybe if you were acting the maggot but if you werent getting in anyones way, annoying other fisher men then i couldnt see it being a problem.
