To stand at the edge of the sea, to sense the ebb and flow of the tides, to feel the breath of a mist, is to have knowledge of things that are as nearly eternal as any earthly life can be.
Apologies, workshops are very limited and are currently on/off due to covid-19 restrictions.

Paul Moinester, is a writer, photographer and environmentalist from the USA and he comments “the more time I spend in Ireland, the more I am amazed by the country’s endless quality fishing offerings, incredible beauty, and collection of talented fly fishing professionals. The Bass retreat was proof positive of this sentiment as anglers from across Ireland and abroad gathered in Cobh to learn from world-class instructors about how to most effectively pursue trophy sea Bass on Ireland’s stunning, rugged coast. This is an experience that I won’t soon forget.
