Book fishing

There are three ways of booking fishing on fisheries owned by The Honourable The Irish Society:

  1. Season/syndicate rods on the private Lower Bann beats have to be booked through the Coleraine office;
  2. Permits (Game or Coarse, Season or 8 day) for the rest of the Lower Bann are available from the Coleraine office or from a number of tackle dealers/outlets in the local area and Belfast (click here for list);
  3. Day Tickets are available online from Fishpal - at

All anglers must also be in possession of a valid DCAL or Loughs Agency rod licence before setting out to fish.  For details of where to obtain these, visit the DCAL and Loughs Agency websites.
