Harry Sliep with his first bass

Father and son Pete and Harry Sliep have been to Ireland many times fishing but neither had ever caught a bass. They tasked Richie Ryan of Eire Bass to break that duck. Not one to shy from a challenge, Richie left the quayside in Cobh and within minutes both father and son had their first bass on board. In 30 years coming to Ireland fishing father Pete could not believe his luck.

Harry's father, Pete, also caught his first bass on the trip

Four bass were caught and three lost in a quick session before their flight back to Holland that afternoon.They have promised to return and  book Richie again next year and to spread the word about Cork Harbour Bass. For those of you worried about a certain closing date looming at the end of September remember October can be an excellent month for bass fishing.
