Dear all,

Thanks for sympathy etc. But you can put away your hankies..
The Irish angling ban has been lifted (but strict guidelines are in place).

YeeeeeeHaaaawwww! I think is how you Americans might put it...

Well put Mylo! Worth tipping a few pints over.

I'll read up on it on the CFB site.

Yeehaaa is right. I've been concerned not only for the farmers, anglers, and the whole country in general, but selfishly for my own trip in 5 months. Let's hope the trend continues.
Hey Mylo do you fish for any Browns in the West/SW? OR do you stick to the Loughs and the pursuit of Char? After your tip I picked up O'Reilly's book. I'd like look into some particular streams if you could point to any. That way I could coordinate it with my cross country trek. As long as the Trad music is nearby http://www.flyfishingforum.com/images/flytalk/Wilk.gif Maybe we could hook up? I could return the favor in the future with a Cape Cod striper fest. We love showing off the cape to visiting FFmen. We can also talk through email.

Although the FMD outbreak is worse in England, Wales and Scotland, we are still fishing here in the majority of the Alighty's chosen land of loch, silver stream and a certain Highland amber nectar. Given that your trip is 5 months away we should be better placed in most of Scotland by that time.

This is a round-about way of enquiring if you'd be interested in extending your visit to include a sojourn to the trout fisheries of Central Scotland. I could arrange for accommodation and take you fishing should you fancy crossing the Irish Sea.

Wow Thanks Scotsphil. I appreciate the offer but the problem is this. I have 2 young children and we've never left them before. So I'll be lucky to get the Mrs. on the plane! Better stock up on hanky's. The stay will be well under the usual cross ocean stay. But there might be a chance of me staying on with my brother a bit longer in Ireland. If the chance develops I will let you know.

Gratefully,
Terry
