The Abercorn Estates fishery on the River Mourne has been a well kept secret. With the only people fortunate enough to have enjoyed sport on this water have been a small local syndicate or friends of the owner.

The water has therefore been lightly fished.

The water is best described as a "fishermans river".

It is fly only and wading is essential.
