Tide Times



THE FOLLOWING IS IN RED TYPE TO STRESS IT'S IMPORTANCE


Take a minute on my FAQ page as this will help your and my planning.

It is always preferable that the fisherman/woman make contact with me rather than an intermediary. 


PLEASE BE REALISTIC ABOUT YOUR FLY-FISHING LEVEL, IT'S NOT A PROBLEM IF YOU'RE A BEGINNER OR IMPROVER BUT PLEASE  DO LET ME KNOW YOUR SKILL LEVEL AS THIS HELPS  DECIDE WHERE WE FISH AND THE RECOMMENDED DURATION OF YOUR SESSION.


Generally,  IF YOU'VE DONE 1- 20 FULL DAYS + INSTRUCTN = NOVICE, 20-50 FULL DAYS = IMPROVER, 50-100 FULL DAYS = EXPERIENCED, 100+FULL DAYS = VERY EXPERIENCED

 In high summer (July/Aug) water levels get low, rivers get weeded and fly-fishing is challenging even for the best, so it might be preferable to opt for a half-day rather than full day session unless one is a master in upstream presentation of dry-fly or nymph. I use a tidal stretch of the river Maigue to overcome low water levels by fishing the ebb tide, thus avoiding cancellations. Starting times are subject to tide times however.
