John Quinlan reports on the bass fishing around Ballinaskelligs Bay…

Rob Ro with his 69cm bass

24 April: First guiding day of the season and a cracking bass for Rob Ro. 69cms and in great condition for the time of year

Neville Board and his fly caught bass

28 April: Great day out with Neville Broad and first day guiding for bass on the fly this season. 5 landed in total. Excellent fishing from Neville. Only disappointment was a very large foul hooked mullet that we were both sure was the bass of a lifetime. Hell of a fight though.
