Abstract: This e-booklet summarises the content of an angling diary kept by Ronan Gormley for more than 60 years. Dating from 1952 to the time of writing (May 2015) it contains records of fish caught in this period. The decision to put pen to paper was twofold. Firstly, to inspire young anglers to keep a diary which in later years they will treasure as it vividly reminds them of special days spent angling in river, lake, sea and other waterways. Secondly, to highlight the decline in catch size and number of species over the years and the necessity to increase positive action to halt or slow down this decline.
