Chairman’s Report August 2021

 

Dear Members,

As we approach the final leg of the salmon angling season, l hope you have had an enjoyable angling season so far.

The prominent club news is the refurbishment of the office in Swinford which will make for a more comfortable and efficient workspace for Kathleen, our Managing Secretary. Many thanks to all who helped out on this project and special thanks to Chadwicks for their support.

On August 16th, the club held it’s first face-to-face committee meeting of the year.
The main point of interest from this meeting was the granting of €15,000 for a Habitat Management Plan which is earmarked for the Pollagh tributary – many thanks to Gary Smyth for his work on the application.

As of the time of the meeting, there was a catch figure of 741 salmon recorded ( 306 of which were released ).

Throughout the season substantial riverbank clearing took place which enabled anglers more comfortable angling .
Great thanks are due to our waterkeepers, Jim & John for organising this annual ongoing work.

The date of the A.G.M. is still unclear due to the pandemic, but the club executive will monitor the situation closely.

Finally, l would like to wish you a safe and happy end of season angling.

Yours sincerely,

Ben Baynes
