POLLOCK AND MACKEREL
In Summer you might want to pop down to Donegal Bay and try some fly-fishing. Hopefully you’ll catch some mackerel and/or Pollock.
In Ireland August is the first month of autumn. Temperatures still pretty high, is August here mostly a wet month, particularly on the west coast. That is what the angler wants and where he wants to be, because rivers are often in spate and the grilse run, normally.Still, most of us think grilse fishing is a summer sport, but really it is an autumn pass time
WINTERBEST TIME FOR PIKE
October, winter isn't far away. That is the best time to catch pike. No matter, whether you go afloat or fish from the banks, full moon periods should be avoided, because for some reason they don’t take?!
