Nice North Down sea trout for Federation member Dan Finlay

14 January, 2020

Nice North Down sea trout for Federation member Dan Finlay. The fish was well made and had lice on it so didn't make the trip up to spawn this year. Released to fight another day, as is the law and time of year in Northern Ireland. Sandeel did the job. P.S. The tongue got nicked with the hook, hence the bit of sauce.

Cushendun Biggest Fish Fun Outing

30 December, 2019

Cushendun Biggest Fish Fun Outing
We had a nice turn out for our Xmas "knockup".
Despite calm conditions along a lot of the Antrim shoreline Cushendun had a heavy swell which was pulling big lumps of weed into tide and causing headaches every once in a while.
Fishing didn't really kick off till last hour and two new Federation members won the money.
Experienced matchman Bobby Laughlin took the flattie prize with a 31cm flounder and Graeme Ruddy won the round fish pool with a plump 39cm bass.
Committee members filled half a bin liner with rubbish on the pre match litter walk and couldn't find any rubbish afterwards.
Well done all!

Excellent fishing from 3 of our Federation members fishing Donegal on a pleasure session.
Account by Diarmaid Adams who was fishing with Uel Moore and Colin Reilly

Just back from Donegal on our annual Christmas pilgrimage in search of big flounder, we ended up with 16 fish over the magic 40cm mark between us, unbelievable days fishing with a few doubles of 40cm +, plus piles more mid to late thirties and coalies threw in as well, not very often days like that come along an was some way to finish off 2019

Hope you had a happy Christmas and are looking forward to the new year

28 December, 2019

Morning Folks
Hope you had a happy Christmas and are looking forward to the new year.
We have had a great time on this page throughout the year, with the reports of fixed competitions and pictures of the various fish taken during the roving comps and anticipated winners.
As you probably have already realised we are a friendly bunch and try are hardest to make you and all very welcome within our Federation. We run a strong fair system within, and treat all as equals, hence you will see no snide remarks no belittling no cheek towards fellow anglers. Just help and friendly advice towards all. It is important to ask anything you are unsure of, fishing or Federation wise, even if you think it is too simple. We are all here to help you improve with confidence.
With our comps starting mid January I hope that you will join our Federation. If you feel that you want to fish with a friend then double pegs are initially available for the first couple of matches to give you time to get clued in.
This is the time of the year to try and get new anglers into the federation and make us even stronger and I ask you to go the extra bit and try your best to involve more anglers.
We will be starting our small learner courses on Helensbay beach starting 8th of January and on every 2 weeks throughout January and February so feel free to come down and bring as many people as you want to have a look at what’s going on.
A big emphasis this year will be to try and get more ladies into angling! We are really lacking on the gender balance front and need to try and get as many girls on the beach as possible. With the possibility of international teams coming up there is a super opportunity for some to get on the Northern Ireland Ladies Team.
So with a full itinerary of various competitions and sponsors being put together as we speak I just want to wish all a great year fishing and good luck.
JOIN NOW!! GET IN CONTACT. £35.00 a year
