Views of the Galway Weir in Irealnd

Here are a few photo's of the famous Galway Weir in Galway city, Ireland. When this photo was taken there was only one gate / sluice open so you can imagine when all the gates are open. The water being so shallow i only used a floating line with a Rio 10ft intermediate tip otherwise one would keep snagging up. The secret to fishing the Galway Weir is to use small flies preferably size 12 or 14 doubles, the salmon seem to like small and highly mobile flies even using a long 20ft tapered leader will give the fly plenty of life. When fishing here a bank stick is a must due to the water speed and uneven bottom and bookings have to be made in advance to secure angling days.
