The River Bonet was in full voice recently as it flowed through Milltown Wood in Lurganboy, writes Martin Branagan.
The River Bonet rises in Glenade Lough, and flows in a semi circle through Manorhamilton, and the ancient village of Dromahair, on its way into Lough Gill. From Lough Gill into Sligo bay is known as the River Garavogue.
Strangely this River is not that well known in Irish Salmon fishing circles, but nonetheless it is a very good spring, summer and autumn fishery. Spring Salmon run from mid-March through to May.
The Grilse arrive in late June and give great sport right through to the beginning of August, when the autumn fish take over through until the end of September.
