THE FOLLOWING IS IN RED TYPE TO STRESS IT'S IMPORTANCE
It's always preferable that the fisherman/woman make contact with me rather than an intermediary.
Take a minute on my FAQ page (Especially Fly-fishing Experience) as this will help your and my planning.
NB When advising Paddy of your fly-fishing skill-level please be honest and realistic, if you only possess downstream fishing skills (Swinging wet flies) please say so, do not assume you can master the more advanced upstream dry-fly or nymph approach as they are a world apart, properly executed upstream fly-fishing is a massive step-up from entry-level downstream fly-fishing and is a skill perfected over time. This matters as it helps choose a location to match your skill-level, we could lose an hour switching venues if you overestimate your skill level.
Skill-level - Generally, 1- 20 FULL DAYS + INSTRUCTION = BEGINNER 20-50 FULL DAYS = IMPROVER/NOVICE, 50-100 FULL DAYS = INTERMEDIATE, 100+DAYS=EXPERIENCED
In high summer (June-Sept) 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.
