Fly & Sea Fishing 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.

Your Fishing Adventure

A Customised Fishing Experience

Fishing adventures with Jonathan are customised for each individual or group starting with a 30 minute fly casting session to get back in form (for the experienced) or get into the groove (for beginners).

The vast amount of water spots of all types in Connemara offer you the opportunity to choose a fishing adventure on a river, lake or the Atlantic Coast. The three hour action-packed experience will include tutorials on fly fishing, spin casting and baiting [often with Jonathan’s hand crafted flies].

All your fishing equipment is provided. The permit for lake and coastal fishing is included. If salmon fishing on the Owenglin River is your desire, the Irish government requires that you purchase a license directly from them online at https://store.fishinginireland.info/

We recommend that you bring a variety of all-weather clothing and boots. Connemara often has four seasons in an hour!
