Bandon, Ilen, Argideen 2
The Bandon has a good stock of sea-trout. The lower reaches seem perhaps the best for those wishing to catch these nomads, and the stretches of water below Bandon weir (much of it controlled by Bandon AA) or below Inishannon Bridge (free to holders of a national salmon licence) can yield good catches. We fished a couple of late nights, catching fish both below Inishannon Bridge and (pictured) below Bandon. The image is of a finnock James took around midnight; I caught and returned a slightly heftier sea-trout soon afterwards on what was a night teeming with rain.
