Surf & turf on the menu for Ritchie Ryan


Angling guide Ritchie Ryan of Eire Bass had a couple of outings this week, one in freshwater, the other in salt:

I fished during the week at the Southern County Fishing Resort near my home town of Borris, Co Carlow. It’s a hidden gem, catch and release on the day. 3 beautiful rainbows landed on the fly, one whopper lost. Owner Chris Kavanagh was most helpful and shows great consideration for the fish which is nice to see. The lakes are fed by a freshwater river ensuring as natural a feeding environment as possible. As Arnold Schwarzenegger said, I’ll be back!”

Back in Cobh, I had a great session aboard Sea Hawk with father and son Dr. Leslie Moats and Zachary. The latter is on an Erasmus Studying Abroad Programme at UCC. A great day was had by all, the son out-fishing the father on this occasion. Fly caught Pollack were reasonably plentiful on the day which bodes well for the season.
