           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 equals years experience with upriver dry-fly or nymph, delicate and precise fly presentation whilst wading deftly towards easily-spooked wild browns.

I've decided to discontinue Salmon angling as my 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, 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 diverse salmon beats on this famous river. Just email me for details.
