                Transport - I collect if clients are staying locally or you can rendezvous at Adare and travel to fishing with me. I don't normally transfer clients who are staying in Limerick city                                                                     due to traffic and time constraints which can entail 4 one-way trips averaging 30mins at peak times. 



NB When advising Paddy of your fly-fishing skill-level please be honest and realistic, if you just have 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 presented upstream fly-fishing is a huge 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 experience or skill-level.

NB - For beginners or novice fly-fishers we fish the user-friendly section of the Maigue at Adare, my other river beats are only for fly-fishers with advanced fly-fishing skills.

Please be aware that Fly-fishing here is on naturally wild rivers and rough terrain and mostly involves wading rough and fast runs so a good degree of physicality and mobility is involved .

                                                Waders: We supply nylon/pvc waist or chest waders, should you wish bring your own breathable waders.                                                                                

 NB : June to Sept can see very dry conditions/low and clear water levels/ weeds, challenging fly fishing, especially during daytime, success is related to ability so advanced upstream

           dry-fly fishing skills desirable.  It may be better to opt for a half day option as a full day can be trying under such conditions, particularly for those lacking advanced skills.

  Advanced skills means many years experience with upriver dry-fly/nymph, delicate, precise fly presentation whilst wading upriver towards easily-spooked native/wild browns, see waters link above.


I decided to discontinue Salmon guiding as many local Salmon waters are closed due to poor fishery management, declining stocks and unpredictable water levels. However.........

If you're interested in fishing for Atlantic Salmon on one of Europe's best salmon rivers, the Munster Blackwater is just over an hour south of Adare in Co. Cork and Paddy can confidently refer you to one of the best, value-for-money all-inclusive salmon guiding outfits who control 10 diverse salmon beats on this famous river. Just email me for details.
