The River Faughan Anglers Ltd manages the fishing as an association water. The popular areas can be busy at times, but by offering over 20 miles of double bank fishing over the entire river system, there is plenty of fishing available for everyone.
As well as issuing season permits, visitors are also able to purchase single day, 3 day and 7 day / weekly permits to visiting anglers.
