is a fishing enthusiast who loves to try new variations of the sport. For this reason, he is proud to lend his support to a new article
from The Huffington Post that discusses some insider tricks for making the most out of an Irish fishing experience. Since fishing is such a localized sport, insider information often yields the best results. Understanding the fishing scene in Ireland helps an enthusiast to make the most out of their time abroad.
In Ireland, wild brown trout are plentiful and come in all sizes. Those found in the River Boyne near Dublin are typically golden in color with red spots. The trout from Lough Ree on the River Shannon make for a delicious and meaty meal. Salmon are another popular choice for those embarking on an Irish fishing expedition, as they are regularly found on the west coast of the country. An individual interested in night fishing will get a thrill out of searching for migratory sea trout that pop up in the moonlight.
Fortunately for fishing enthusiasts on a budget, there are a number of free or affordable fishing opportunities in Ireland. The western seaboard is home to a number of well-known fishing houses, as well as a scenic backdrop for adventures on the water. A person can choose relatively inexpensive accommodations that allow them to fish in the Ox Mountains, and can also do some trout fishing in Lough Talt for free. The 100-acre Lough Easky has an abundance of salmon and sea trout. For those looking to spend a bit more, opportunities to do so are plentiful. A fisherman can fork over more than $1,000 to enjoy three nights and two days of fishing in a luxury fishing lodge. This type of fishing enthusiast can also enjoy fishing the River Nore, where one day's worth of salmon fishing is priced at $170.
"There is no shortage of opportunities to fish in Ireland," notes Henri Degre. "Not only does the fisherman get to enjoy plentiful varieties of fish, but they also get to take in some of the most majestic views in the world. Heading to Ireland to fish is a dream of many fishing enthusiasts."
It may feel overwhelming to start fishing in another country. A fishing enthusiast will know their own local spots well, but may feel stumped about where to proceed when they make the trek abroad.
If this is the case, the individual should start by heading to local tackle shops. In Ireland, these spots are like clubhouses for fishermen, and can offer a wealth of information to a person who is fishing in the country for the first time. If the tackle shop does not provide answers, the local pub is sure to help. There is no shortage of fishing enthusiasts in the country, and many are more than willing to help a tourist find the perfect spot.
"For a person passionate about the sport, there is nothing quite like heading to another country to explore the fishing opportunities there. Relying on local resources and residents for help is an essential part of making sure the trip is a total success," states Henri Degre.
