Paddy Dunworth, a fly-fishing guide based in Adare has been fly fishing for 50yrs, guiding visiting anglers for 25.
Paddy is a qualified Marine and Countryside Guide with training in Guiding, First Aid, Rescue/Emergency First Aid, VHF Radio. He has an intimate knowledge of the Fisheries and Antiquities of this beautiful region. An all-round angler and fly-tier, Paddy specialises in wild brown Trout, and includes fly-casting tuition for beginners and improvers as part of his guiding. Paddy holds Police Vetting Clearance
and has guided anglers from 30 Countries & every State of the USA, speaks English/Gaelic, some French + a little German.
This is an all-inclusive service, all you need is included in Rates, along with collection & transport throughout.
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 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 overstate your experience.
Skill-level - Generally, IF YOU'VE DONE 1- 20 FULL DAYS + INSTRUCTION = BEGINNER 20-50 FULL DAYS = IMPROVER, 50-100 FULL 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.
