Portmoon a poem

Portmoon a poem

Starting in the 1830s Port Moon was a centre of salmon fishing. Nets stretched out between the rocks to catch salmon migrating across the Atlantic to spawn in the River Bush. The fisherman’s bothy has been restored and is used as a stopover for kayakers exploring the Causeway Coast.
