Sport-Fishing-Galway-Mayo-Ireland085.jpg | The Great Fishing Houses of Ireland.

Ballina, county Mayo, Ireland, June 2010. This is justifiably one of the most famous angling venues in the world, where catches of over 5,000 salmon have been recorded in a single season. Its entire length, of just over 1.5 miles is located within the Ballina Town boundaries. Purchased by the State in 1987, the Moy Fishery is now under the management of the North Western Regional Fisheries Board. In 1999 the board completed the first phase of the Moy Development Plan. This programme enhanced large sections of salmon and trout spawning and nursery habitat and created numerous new angling pools on the River Moy and its tributaries. Much of this development work was centred on the Moy Fishery and a considerable number of new angling spaces have been created as a result. For centuries, Ireland has offered the greatest sport fishing to anglers. Several traditional houses offer accomodation and fishing in style, under the name 'The Great Fishing Houses of Ireland'.  Each of the houses has access to superb fishing. Some offer private, exclusive waters, while others are located on the great free lakes of Ireland. Photo by Frits Meyst/Adventure4ever.com
