By the time you read this blog post I will be on my way to my favourite country on this glorious earth to do a couple of weeks of co-guiding work with John Quinlan of the rather awesome Thatch Cottage Fishing Lodge setup. For various reasons I haven’t been to Ireland yet this year and I seriously can’t wait to disembark that ferry tomorrow afternoon in Rosslare and make the longish drive to Kerry in the south west.
Our first bunch of clients arrive on Tuesday, with the actual fishing starting on Wednesday, and I can’t wait to get going. Working with anglers is a massive buzz, and to be surrounded by such a special part of the world is the icing on the cake. You won’t find a nicer guy than John Quinlan and we’ve got lots of catching up to do. As ever I am sure that this trip will be a great mix of hard work and lots of laughing. I will keep the blog updated as much as I can, but please forgive me if it is somewhat sporadic at times..……..
