What you fishing for wilf?

Last week mate, my first ever crack at Salmon......needless to say, I didn’t catch any ! Lol

Thats free section but further down river is controlled by various clubs and you have to pay but I’ll give them a go in the next few weeks.

I figured for my first go I’d rather make a c**t of myself for free then pay €20-€60 for the privilege! Lol

Bunch of worms along the bottom?

Yes mate, I couldn’t find any whole prawns in the shops !!......they will sell them in the tackle shop in Foxford so I’ll pick some up there.

Its like a cross between traditional trotting and fishing on top for carp......heavy gear but float fished.

That set up there was my Greys barbel Rod, 10lb pre stretched and 10lb drennan double strength hook length, exactly what I used to use for floater fishing other than the rod.
