Before I get on to salmon I really want to thank my friend Sue Hunter who has, is, and will be helping me with this site! Apart from a broken ankle she is now needing therapy for having to deal with me and my computer nurdness!! 

"If" we get the odd day when you can't fish on the Corrib due to bad weather i.e. white rollers and sea birds flying sideways it may give you the opportunity to go salmon fishing, after all Ireland has some of the best salmon fishing available in Europe and even if the lough is fishable you may like the chance of having a day casting for a freshly run salmon straight from the sea. One of the best spate rivers is less than 40 miles from here, the river Erriff with its famous Aasleagh falls at Leenane. The fisheries board controls an eight mile stretch divided into nine beats all of which are in areas of outstanding beauty.
We will take you over in the morning with a packed lunch and arrange to pick you up later after hopefully meeting a fish or two. The scenery on the way alone is worth the visit. Tackle can be provided. Sue hurry up and fix the leg I owe you a days salmon fishing!
