Fly Fishing in Ireland

South West Ireland offers some of the best dry fly fishing rivers and loughs in Europe, in gloriously beautiful countryside.

Here you can fish for brown trout and salmon and target some of Ireland' biggest sea trout.

In addition to it's many wonderful gin-clear free stone and limestone rivers, Ireland's south west has an abundance of spectacular loughs which are justifiably famous for the quality and size of their trout.

The Suir  

The Blackwater is Ireland’s most beautiful Salmon river and one of the most prolific in Europe. It rises in Kerry, flowing 120 kilometers west to east through Waterford to join the sea at Youghal.

Amongst the south west's best known trout rivers are the Suir, Nire and Tar. The Suir is Ireland's second longest river and world famous for its dry fly fishing for brown trout.

All these rivers have easy access and wading - mainly over gravels beds and small boulders.

Average size browns vary from 20 to 40 cm, with larger fish up 55 cm not uncommon.

Saltwater Fishing in Ireland  

Saltwater Fishing. The western coastline is washed by some of the cleanest and clearest seas in Europe. Wexford is one of Ireland’s top locations for Saltwater Fly Fishing, offering Sea Bass, Sea Trout, Pollack and Mullet

Fish from shore or by boat, chasing the tides amongst diving terns and peeping otters, and watch the surface explode as a huge bass hits your fly.

Pike fishing in Ireland  

Pike are now one of the most highly sought after sport fish species in Europe and North America. In recent years Ireland has developed an excellent reputation for the quality of its pike fishing, especially for Pike on the fly.

Ireland boasts thousands of Loughs and several thousand kilometers of pike bearing rivers. And as there is no statutory close season for pike in Ireland, anglers are free to fish for them all year round.
