Following our very successful Match the Hatch (http://www.irishtimes.com/sport/other-sports/great-enthusiasm-all-around-for-match-the-hatch-angling-event-held-near-balbriggan-co-dublin-1.2075866 river fishing and salmon fishing courses, we are planning a River and Night Fishing, Sea Trout Course for the 11th July. This event will be held on a premier, east coast, sea trout fishery and will include both classroom and river bank components. Participants will have access to a prime river beat, at the peak of the sea trout run, for night fishing. The course will run from 14.00 on the afternoon of the 11th until well into darkness on the morning of the 12th. An evening meal will be provided. A selection of accommodation will be available for those hardy souls wishing to fish Falkus-style throughout the hours of darkness!

Participants will receive a boxed selection of 6 recommended sea trout flies. A range of Denis O’Toole’s masterful sea trout flies, as displayed in Ken’s recent book Nomads of the Tides, will be available for purchase.

During the course participants may also purchase signed copies of the highly acclaimed book: Nomads of the Tides: Fishing for Irish Sea-Trout Chris McCully and Ken Whelan (2014) – http://www.medlarpress.com/code/index.html#!/Nomads-of-the-Tides/p/21216824)

The cost of the course will be some €200 per participant (excluding accommodation).

Are you interested in attending this unique course?

If so please let either of us know a.s.a.p.

Places are limited but if we have sufficient interest we plan to run additional courses over the summer months. We are also planning estuarine courses for bass and sea trout, later this summer.
