Our Destinations in Ireland & Northern Ireland
Salmon fishing in the River Finn is one of the best kept secrets in Europe. Until recently, the Finn was virtually unknown to European salmon fishermen. But the inauguration of the Glenmore Rivers Lodge in 2007 by Chris Demagery, ex-saxophonist of “Simply Red”, has converted the river in Ireland’s destination of reference among a hndful of privileged fishermen.
The Blackwater is the second largest river in Ireland after the Shannon, and one of the two or three most productive salmon rivers in the country. It is an excellent choice for mixed groups as fly, bait and spin fishing are all permitted.
Recognized as the best salmon river in Northern Ireland, the River Mourne is the largest tributary in Foyle River system. An estimated average of 80.000 salmon return to the Foyle system every year, of which a large portion return to the River Mourne.
