THE RIVER AERON’S ONLY ANGLING CLUB
TROUT AND SALMON ARTICLE
One warm June evening in 2000, sea trout angler and author, Jonathan Jones visited the Aeron for an evening’s fishing with a view to writing an article on the river for Trout and Salmon magazine. Shane Jones and Carl Scourfield accompanied Jonathan for the evening, starting off with a fact finding interview and a drink at the Monachty Arms Hotel. On arriving at the riverside at 10:30pm there were no anglers fishing. The river had risen slightly the previous day and there was a hint of colour remaining which had possibly put the regular night fly anglers off. It was a shame that it had as great sport was enjoyed.
