Angling Guide

Conor began guiding about 10 years ago and now runs his own International guiding business based on his fishery, the Upper Bridgetown Salmon Fishery, on the river Blackwater.

This is a very productive, and picturesque single bank fishery on the middle river Blackwater in Co. Cork. Here he runs a day ticket fishery as well as using it as his base for his casting tuition and courses.

Conor also guides and sells days tickets on the neighbouring private fishery of Ballyhooly Castle fishery. This fishery is a private family owned fishery offering a wide variety of water on five miles of double bank.
