Just had a cancellation so we’ve got a spare place on one of our October co-guided fishing trips over in Kerry, SW Ireland - come along if you can!

I love being in Ireland any time of the year, but I do have a particular thing for autumn and how it can sometimes work really well for the bass fishing especially. The biggest bass we have had on one of our co-guided trips came during the autumn last year, a donkey of 82cms, and whilst I am not remotely going to try and pretend that bass like this are common, there’s always a chance is there not? Anyway, we had a cancellation at the end of last week so we have now got a spare place on an October trip:

  • Arrive Sunday 13th October

  • Fish 14th, 15th, 16th, 17th

  • Depart Friday 18th October

If we get some decent swell conditions then I can assure you that we will be fishing the most epic surf beach you can imagine seeing over in Kerry, and when this place fires it’s quite something. Whatever the conditions choose to do though, we have plenty of viable options to go looking for fish. If you think you can make it then please contact me here and we can get the ball rolling. We can easily provide rods and reels if you don’t have them or you are going to fly into Ireland and quite rightly want to avoid having to pay extra for a rod tube.


Thanks for reading and I hope that one of you lucky people can make it. I do a bunch of different things within fishing, but working with John Quinlan and our clients over in the south west of Ireland is just awesome and I can’t wait to get back out there. Kerry is the wild west and I love it more and more. Hope to see you out there……..
