11/10/14 As promised I will start with Mr. Jim Sayers and his party who were fishing on Lough Namona yesterday and here are their results, Jim caught  a fine Sea Trout in the 4 lbs Class and his good friend John Walsh, caught a fine Brown Trout in the 1 ¼ lbs class and  Jim was telling that they also lost a good fish, in his opinion it was a Salmon but as he said he wouldn't put a mortgage on it, they also caught a Junior. Now Back to the present and we will stay with the upper Lakes and Mr. Jim Sayers and party, today they were fishing on Lough Cloonaghlin, Jim reported that the action ddidn'tstart until late afternoon, reason being they were waiting for the wind to get up so here are their results. Mr. John Walsh, caught a fine 1 ½ lbs Sea Trout, they also caught 20 Juniors and a good basket of Brown Trout. Staying with the upper Lakes, on Lough Derriana, Tim and Jeremy O’Connor, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of caught 1 Sea Trout of 1 ½ lbs. Now we head down stream to the big Lake /Lough Currane. Mr. Donagh McCarthy of the USA and Waterville caught 3 Trout while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of just for the record all yesterdays and today’s catches were returned. Wind light and variable. Last Night I got an email from a concerned angler, so I will let him have centre stage. Vincent:
I am disturbed to hear that the EU has dismissed the complaint regarding salmon farms and their effect on wild fish stocks.  At the same time, IFI has just stated, after examination of all the information regarding the same subject, that there is considerable negative impact to the wild fish stocks as a result of the sea lice attendant to salmon farming.  Please urge your readers to spend some time in the close season writing to their local TDs to encourage them to raise questions regarding this subject.
It might also be an idea for some organization to file a lawsuit on behalf of all the anglers requesting an injunction against these farms pending further investigation.  Surely there are some lawyers in Ireland who are also fishermen?  The time to protest these dangerous and polluting salmon farms and stop the further decimation of the wild salmon and sea trout stocks is now!
Ireland is one of the last countries in the world where you can easily access such fishing, and where it does not cost exorbitant amounts to do so.  Please stand up and prevent the EU from using Ireland as a market garden.  Most European Countries have already decimated their own fish stocks, prevent Ireland from making the same mistakes and ending up barren of salmon and sea trout.
Very truly yours,
Murray T. Beatts
