Good to be back after almost 2 years inactivity due to Covid-19
With little or no incoming travel I'm offering a scaled-back service from Aug 2nd to end of season Sept 30th. With safety in mind I'm foregoing the longer 6-hr full-day package for half-day option, also doing the 3.5hr Flycasting instruction whilst fishing packages at Adare as well as Intro to Flyfishing package (3hr).
River Maigue only, No River Deel as it's too distant for shorter sessions.
I'm fully vaccinated since July 9th
Now taking bookings for remainder of 2021 season (Aug 2nd - Sep 30th)
( Deposit Not Required - No Travel/Fishing - No Charge)
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 OPTIMUM 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 = VERYEXPERIENCED
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.
