Rainbows and browns in picturesque Kilkenny

December 23rd, 2015 | by

Wexford guide Gerard Doran leaves the yellow and gold in favour of the black and amber, but just for one day and all in the name of fishing!  He is delighted with the quality of surroundings and fish available in Ned Maher’s fishery at Mooncoin, in Co. Kilkenny and reports:

Well what can I say, 2015 has been a great year in many respects but a very difficult fishing season for anglers of all disciplines let alone a guide who makes a living from it. For the past 5 weeks the weather has for not the first time this year refused to cooperate which brought me thinking of my options to wet a line.

Somewhere where I have been meaning to fish for years now but for many reasons I simply didn’t get around to fishing is Adaire Springs trout fishery near Mooncoin Co.Kilkenny.  I have been there a number of times over the past few weeks and have had some superb fishing on the fly with three double figure fish two rainbows and one brown amongst a good stamp of smaller fish but still quality fish.

Ned has set up what I believe to be a superb fishery for many reasons, I wont get into why it is such a fantastic fishery but I will simply say that it is unlike any other such facility available and go fish it, Its being built and run properly with attention to detail  and quality fish you simply don’t get elsewhere.
