Coarse & Pike Fishing in Northern Ireland

Excellent coarse fishing for quality roach, hybrids and bream. Big pike waters. Superb fly fishing too for trout and salmon. Sterling prices - great value.

The Erne system consists of a huge amount of water with both still waters and flowing waters. In winter and spring the flowing waters are where the large roach and bream shoals are and during periods of mild weather, fishing at distance can produce good sport. In spring early summer vast shoals migrate the system and once located big bags are possible. During periods of clear water (zebra mussels have an effect here) you have to fish at range, but if it's overcast and there's some natural colour you can catch much closer. The lower lough on the Erne System has some quality bream, roach and pike.Hire a boat and you have hundreds of exclusive fishing locations. Good year round fishing for coarse fish.

Lower Bann has good access and great fishing. Roach, hybrids and bream are the mainstay here, they do move up and down the system and can be caught right through the seasons. Spring and autumn are best for roach and hybrids, but some huge weights of big bream (8 to 10 pounders) are caught in the warm summer months.

Northern Ireland Rod Licences

From April 2016, anglers will no longer get a paper rod licence or permit. Instead, they will get an electronic record (e-record) with a unique reference number. The new system will work out what type of licence or permit is needed.
