Delphi Lodge hosts children’s fishing day
Delphi Lodge, a historic fishing lodge in County Mayo, held its now annual end of season staff and children’s day on Saturday 30 September 2017.
Local children as well as a group of children from the Mayo area enjoyed a wonderful days fishing in this fabulous fishery and many of them had an experience they’ll never forget while managing to land their first salmon.
Michael Wade and his staff then hosted a wonderful outdoor lunch in front of the lodge where everyone got to recall their fishing experiences that morning. To round off the day, David McEvoy who manages the fishery and estate then demonstrated to the visiting children how the salmon are tagged, recorded and gave a brief demonstration on the life cycle of salmon and the science used in recording their journey to sea and eventual return.
The Moy River Trust would like to thank Delphi Lodge for their support of our Children’s angling initiative.
