  • Another Ireland trip, Portglenone River Bann

    Wednesday 8th November thru til Monday 15th November
    I was waiting at Belfast International Airport arrivals lounge when my mobile began to ring.

    Hello Ron,i said

    Where are you ?, said Ron, in the arrivals lounge, said i, I'll be there in a couple of minutes. I then picked up my bag and began to make my way out.

    Outside i negotiated the traffic when i heard ANDY, i looked up and i saw who i thought was Ron, after a double take, my wave turned into a pointed finger, i could not take in who was there, not 100 yards away, i squinted my eye's to make sure it was who i was looking at, yes it was him MARK.a very ggod friend of mine. The two of them had kept it a secret from me that Mark was coming over. The greeting was done and then Ron, Becky and Nicky appeared from behind the bushes.
    After a lot of chit chat about my suprise it was off to meet Shona. Another warm welcome i must say.


    Portgelone, i had a good amount of roach, the river was cold, and a bit slow in running, but still very enjoyable, the craic was great, i never let Mark forget what he and Ron done to me,

    Not many pictures were taken during the visit, the fishing was a bit hard, so it was action stations all round, but i did manage to get a few.

    And below a typical roach to Marks rod

    And last of all my favourite image, a reflection in the River Bann

    We did manage a few of the black stuff, it was great to meet up with Sammy, Agnes and the locals again, the craic was mighty and the guinness was fine

      No mate, pure pleasure for me.
      There was a big international festival on the river when we fished it, a lot of Dutch anglers around us.
