19/6/15 My Noble Anglers failed miserably in all departments but to be fair it wasn’t a great day with very low cloud and a light wind from the West and very humid, my Noble Game Fish were as lethargic as the Anglers so on that note I will head for the apology department again and yes you have it another technical cock-up on my part. I start in the Salmon/Grilse department, Local Angler Dr. Jim Commerford caught a Salmon/Grilse on the troll. And in the Sea Trout department Mr. Michael O’Sullivan the Commander-in-chief of Waterville Boats and at caught a fine 3lbs. Sea Trout on the Fly and I can tell you he wasn’t amused, all I can say is sorry for these discrepancies’ just for the record they were caught last week. Now to the personal department I would like to Wish on behalf of all Anglers from Ireland and overseas, Mr. Paul Burke of the Inland Fisheries a great retirement and plenty of tight lines so I will let Paul have the last word on today’s notes
Finally, this is my last Angling Update as I retire today after 40 years in the fisheries service.  I began the Irish Angling Update back in 1989 under the guidance of the late Kevin Linanne and ably assisted by staff of the Central and Regional Fisheries Board staff all through the years.  In Inland Fisheries Ireland this work continues to bring you the best of what Ireland has to offer you on a weekly basis.  My thanks to all the contributors over the years and please contact Myles Kelly( ) or Nancy Hearne  ( ) who will continue to bring you the very best of Irish Angling along with my many colleagues and other contributors.
I am off to enjoy the best of what Irish Angling has to offer so please god I will run across you somewhere but please wear a lifejacket at all times when going afloat in freshwater or at sea,
Safe fishing to all and tight lines, especially here in Ireland.
Paul Bourke
