The Wexford coast provides us with a multitude of bass fishing locations and complex environments. From the surf fishing of the east coast beaches and the swirling mysterious sands at Wexford Harbour to the iconic fast water reef systems at Splaugh rock. We can venture past the southern tidal rips of the islands and onwards to the historical Bannow bay and its estuarine secrets finally finding ourselves on the rocky platforms of the Hook Peninsula.
For the saltwater fly fisher this presents a possible lifetime of learning and opportunity, fly fishing takes time, its a slow process. I hope to be able to convey some of my experiences in the next few sequences of posts regarding tackle choices in relation to the fishing and the fishing environments on the Wexford coast particular in respect of presentations to the fish.
