Fly & Sea Fishing Lessons in Connemara

Whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced angler, Fishing in Connemara aims to provide an enjoyable and affordable trip for all levels of experience.

Connemara has more lakes than you could fish in a lifetime. Some lakes have lots of small brown trout, others with sea trout and salmon. The lakes also vary in size from tiny lakes where you’ll be surprised to catch hard fighting wild brownies to the larger deeper lakes that hold double figure salmon, sea trout, brown trout and even, occasionally, a char.

There are also some great rivers which are some of the prettiest in Ireland. They are the best for salmon, brown trout and sea trout fishing.

Coastal fishing is great for families with a higher catch rate for beginners using bait and spinners. Salt water fly fishing is also very enjoyable.

You will enjoy a truly unique experience on the Wild Atlantic Way with us.

“Brilliant with the kids”

Very welcoming and a patient teacher. Brilliant with the kids (who both caught a trout!) and kind to the adults who didn’t. Wonderful morning out despite a little rain. Thank you so much! Will – July 2020
