Lough Mask

LOUGH MASK is the wilder and lesser-known neighbour of the famous Lough Corrib, but for all that it is no less productive and is rightly considered one of the great loughs of Ireland. The 20,500-acre lake holds very good stocks of wild brown trout, though it is deeper and more exposed than Corrib so weather can be an important factor in determining success.

Lough Corrib

PROBABLY THE most famous fishery in Ireland, and certainly its greatest limestone lough, Corrib has been attracting anglers to the Emerald Isle since Victorian times. At a staggering 44,000 acres it is the largest lake in the Republic – a vast expanse that’s characterised by sheltered bays, rocky shores and an array of islands.

Itchen

ONE OF Hampshire’s famous chalkstreams, the Itchen is shorter than its equally famous neighbour, the Test, and is therefore more exclusive. Many Itchen beats are controlled by syndicates and private owners with fishing reserved for members and friends only, although there is some day-ticket availability – and even a free stretch through Winchester city centre.

River Blackwater

THE BLACKWATER rises in the boglands of County Kerry, and although the peaty tinge it carries gives rise to its name it also flows through limestone and that helps it to support a diverse range of fly-life which provides plenty of sustenance for salmon parr and trout. The river is one of Ireland’s most productive salmon fisheries, along with the River Moy.
