With hundreds of miles of river, large and small freshwater lakes and sea loughs, anglers have a wide choice of venues. The wide expanse of Lower Lough Erne is the perfect habitat for brown trout, as are many of the tributaries of Lough Neagh namely the Moyola, Maine, Six Mile Water and Crumlin Rivers; these same rivers are also known for for their salmon and dollaghan, the latter being a unique species of Lough Neagh migratory brown trout. Some superb grilse, meanwhile, can be found in the nearby Lower Bann system from June onwards.

The River Mourne in northwest Ireland is a renown salmon river, one of the top three in Europe. The Mourne is famed for a summer and autumn run of quality Salmon and guests have access to private beats on the Abercorn Estates pools. Knowledgeable guides. The River Finn, a smaller tributary, is an early spate river providing a good grilse run.

Guests stay at Baronscourt on The Duke of Abercorn's Estate. Alternative accommodation may also be on offer. The Finn is an hours scenic drive and guests can stay and fish the Glenmore Estates water.

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. See the following link to buy your licence on-line:
