I've decided to discontinue Salmon angling because most local Salmon waters are closed for conservation reasons, also due to declining runs/unpredictable water levels.
If you're interested in fishing for Atlantic Salmon on one of Europe's best salmon rivers, then 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 versatile salmon beats on this famous river. Just email me for details.
Please note that my rates remain the same even if you decide to use your own tackle and waders
Full day (6hrs) wild Brown Trout fishing on River Maigue and/or River Deel. - 180Eu for 1 person and 50Eu pp extra, maximum 4 total.
( Full day more suited to experienced fly-fishers)
Half-day (3.5hrs) - 140Eu for 1 person and 40Eu per person extra, maximum 4 persons.
Please note :July/Aug/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
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 entail ample experience with upriver dry-fly or nymph, delicate and precise fly presentation whilst wading deftly towards easily-spooked wild browns.
