April at the Kilcoleman Fishery produced 27mm of rain which is about 22% of normal for this month. Consequently fishing was poor although earlier in the month we had some good sport with trout. Last Saturday night we had 15mm which unfortunately was all absorbed by the ground and river levels were not effected.
We have just gone live on Facebook as advised by our web designer. This is new to us so please be patient! Apparently I have to us keywords which people would click on to search for our business. Google Analytics over the past 10 days has shown that the terms #flyfishingireland and #fly fishing cork have all been used the most! Also I’m told that I should put a # sign in front of them hence the above. All very strange to a guy who was bought up with a fountain pen to communicate! So please excuse the odd insertion of these words in future blogs even though they have nothing in the world to do with the subject matter.
We are considering placing our site on airbnb to generate more business. This means that in the future we will be separating the accommodation tariff from the fishing and golf. This will give fishing guests the opportunity to either book a weekly permit or a daily one (or indeed just the accommodation).
Just a reminder to guests who have already booked. The tariffs we agreed on when booking stand and any difference you see on our new web site do not apply to you.
Please keep us posted as to any errors or suggestions you notice in our new web site. Thanks
Till next time Best Wishes
David & Pat
