The spinner is not allowed. The most popular flies used are:
Black Pennel, Bibio & Teal Blue & Silver for Sea trout
Various Shrimp patterns, Hairy Mary & Thunder & Lightning for Salmon

The Wheelchair Pool
This Pool was created in Autumn of 2002. The Glenamoy Community Association, the riparian owner, and the North Western Regional Fisheries Board (now Inland Fisheries Ireland) saw the need for such a facility on the river. This will enable 2 to 3 wheelchair participants to fish the pool at any time. The local residents see this as the jewel in the crown.

Ghillie Service
A ghillie service is availabe if required. Please phone +353 (0)97 879610 for further details.


The wheelchair pool facilitates 2 to 3 wheelchair participants to fish at any time.
