What a week!

The boys are back in town!!

Here is a picture of the gang minus Cian who on this occasion had to work , shame as this was one of the best mornings i took eight fish and lost a monster, these guys are one of the best groups of blokes I've ever had the privilege of meeting, not to mention very talented anglers!

Here is Henry fishing a new spot one morning,we didn't do so well at high water down, but the luck changed with Henry tacking the first fish ,a cracker! at five or six pounds on a shallow feed mullet..... his favourite next i took a four and a six pounder on the yellow patchinko surface lure. these fish were taken from two hours before low and over low ,so the moral is never give up and work the best tides to suit each venue.

Over the week we walked an impressive amount of miles and fished are socks off, something we all enjoy very much!! Even if it took me a good week to recover fully!
I'm not one to spread rumors but I'm sure Henry has bionic legs?!
Now I'm really missing this place I've fallen for Ireland in a big way. Guys look after it.
It's really very special.
and i must say your all welcome to fish my patch anytime.....but you might need to bring a book!!

Here the lads are trying a spot we've not fished before, The man at the back is Graham Hill keeping a watchful eye on his apprentices .
Watch out graham! Maybe you've told them to much their getting good!

While the cats away!!

So Dads of in ireland so i thought id tell you of some of our recent local antics down in the westcountry!!

A few weeks ago we went out to one of dads marks in the search of some Bass.
Altogether i must say it wasnt an amazing session, the conditions weren't brilliant but we thought we'd give it a go all the same.

In this picture we see dad with his tenryu Rod Bar

"O another one of those stupidly expensive rods" i hear you say, yes admittedly they are expensive but i think they are worth every penny! In all the rods that dad has used for lure fishing over the years he wreckons that the tenyru rods are by far the best and i can well believe it, even though i have only used it a few times as he keeps it close for himself to use!

Bellow again you can see some more close up views of the rod in question

Ok so it wasnt a particularly productive session but we had fun and at least we caught something and got to watch it swim away again !

In this picture we see dad with the "catch of the day" caught on a Duo Tide Minnow 120 Surf Holo in White, one of his many many lures!!
