Ghillies & Boat Hire

Anglers are legally required to be in possession of a salmon or sea trout licence. Licences can be purchased from the Londis Store and the Tackle Shop in Waterville (both  official IFI fishing license distributors), online at www.salmonlicences.ie , or from any Inland Fisheries Ireland Office.
On purchasing a licence an angler will receive a copy of the Salmon Angling Regulations which provides information on bag limits, gill tags and how to return your completed logbook and un-used tags.
