Ken Whelan and Jason O Riordan Angling Courses 2107
March 7th, 2017 | by Myles Kelly
Ken Whelan and Jason O Riordan are offering a number of courses for anglers this year…
Please find below and attached details of our angling courses for 2017. As you will see we have expanded our offerings to include a very exciting course on saltwater fishing for bass and sea trout. Considering the success we enjoyed last season testing out marks along the south coast, this course should be quite an adventure!! We are also running daytime and night time sea trout courses, which will include estuarine fishing on the some of our favourite southern rivers and salmon fishing on one of the best beats on the Munster Blackwater. Our ever popular Match the Hatch series will move to a gorgeous, intimate, little private lake near Ashford in County Wicklow…as they say: less than an hour from Dublin.
Have you an idea for other courses?? Do let us know, as we are always keen to design bespoke courses for clubs, local interest groups or fishery owners. Last autumn’s Freshwater Detective series in UCD was again a great success, with very positive feedback from the participants. As we did last year, we plan to roll out this course at various venues across the country. We are also hoping to announce details shortly of the AST adopt-a-stream initiative – the Small Streams Characterisation System training programme (http://www.atlanticsalmontrust.org/small-streams-course/). The course is ideally suited to club members interested in mapping, assessing and protecting their small feeder / spawning streams.
Jason and I will be next at one of our favourite shows of the year – the Northwest Angling Fair in Strabane (8th and 9th April, http://www.derrystrabane.com/Subsites/Angling-Fair/Welcome). A little earlier ( March 10th and 11th ), Ken will be helping to man the Atlantic Salmon Trust stand and giving some talks at the London Fly Fishing Fair ( http://thelondonflyfishingfair.co.uk/).
Do book early, as based on past experience, these courses fill up fast!
Ken and Jason
