Welcome to our website which is aimed primarily at members and friends of our club and those who take an interest in the preservation of salmon and trout in such portion of the River Boyne and its tributaries as may be acquired by the Association from time to time.
Long serving Treasurer, Liam Anderson and Alo Kelly, Committee member retire
We bade farewell to Liam and Alo in the Bounty Bar after Christmas. The evening was well attended and many a fishy tale was recounted!
Liam's father was a founder member of the club so it is fitting that Liam followed in his footsteps and played such an important role in the development of our club. Liam tells the story of how he volunteered as Treasurer for one year - and circa 25 years later , he finally got free! (no doubt I will be corrected on actually how many years)
Liam was presented by our club chairman, Joe O'Donnell, with a Hardy fishing reel in recognition of his years of hard work and commitment to the club. Liam was always the go to member for visiting anglers who were warmly greeted to the town. Liam will be missed but we hope to hear his new reel singing by the river bank in the years ahead.
Alo was a long standing committee member and always had sage words of advice to offer at meetings. Alo played a vital link also with the local riparian owners, upon whom the very existence of our club relies. Alo was presented with a token voucher in appreciation of his years of serving on the committee.
Juniors take the lead:-
Junior Anglers from three Boyne angling clubs landed and released 72 trout today in our first inter Boyne club Junior competition. The river was low but in excellent condition and the trout obliged although most were caught sub surface.
Afterwards, our club secretary, Pat O'Toole cooked up a BBQ for all anglers and stewards. Thanks also to visiting club officials Kieran O'Kelly and Pat McLoughlin from Kells Anglers and Simon Cassidy and Frank Doherty from Navan Anglers. Great day had by all:-
2015 : Trimblestown Rehabilitation Work
We've just added a short video of some of the rehabilitation work that took place on part of the Trimblestown River this year. See it over on our Fishery Page.
Update:- 2014 is a year where the fishing is perhaps taking second place to river developments which will hopefully benefit generations of anglers to come.
The OPW is working on the main river upstream of Trim at the Mill, which is accounting for the volume of silty coloured water descending each day.
The club also has kicked of its own rehabilitation works on the Trimblestown River, supported by the Salmon Conservation Trust.
More details of of these projects can be found here on our Fishery page.
