    Its very important to be patient. Fishing can be a time-consuming activity, you might be out there for days, waiting for a bite. Don’t keep going back to your thread, you’ll only scare them off.

    You will also need to pack plenty of controversial opinions. These can be quite easy to make at home. Just take an ordinary saucepan, fill it with half-baked ideas, sprinkle on some secondary school arguments, add a dash of racism and leave to simmer. After a few days, this should congeal nicely and be ready to air in public.

    Of course, if you run out of controversial opinions, you can always buy some ready made ones. I would recommend the Daily Mail, or if you’re on a budget, the Sun will do just as well. The great thing about these papers is that they can serve a dual purpose and save you the need to pack toilet roll as well!

    Surely it doesn’t matter what you do so long as you get a bite?

    True, but it’s a lot of effort for a little nibble.

    I know Jim .. some people only fish in a very small pond, others prefer the sea.

    I have three anoraks. One each for my favourite hobbies: trainspotting, planespotting and extreme stamp collecting (the outdoor version)

    Aranalde,<br>your original post was excellent, one of your best in my opinion.   In fact, being somewhat green myself,  you almost had me believing you for a minute:cool:

    Myself and a friend are discussing organising a fishing trip over in Ireland (Southern) for sometime next year. We would be looking to go over for 4/5 nights to take in some coarse fishing on lakes/lochs for breme, roach etc (and a few pints of guinness come the evening in a local).

    What we are after though is an area well off the beaten track, up in some rolling countryside, and an area therefore which sees little angling pressure (which pretty much rules out areas in and around the Shannon etc).

    Do any of you Irish TRFers (or anybody else thats been over for that matter) have any suggestions to an area we may head for, or any general info on fishing in Ireland, as it will be the first trip for th both of us.
    Thanks in advance.

    My dad has just came back from fishing in Ireland.
    Pretty much as you describe, but think its on the west coast somewhere, salmon fishing on a river called the Esky (sp?).
    I think they had a good time, certainly seemed like it when they all rang me up singing, in the middle of the afternoon.
    Can get you more info if you like.

    Cheers Cheekster,
    Any info would be of use as it will be the first trip (although we have been discusssing it for numerous years now on and off).

    The area to head for is of most interest, reading on the net it appears that there is water pretty much anywhere you go, our only real pre-requisite is that it is a secluded spot, for some peace and quiet.
    Also, any info on what it cost him would be very helpful!

    Don’t go to Ireland – Scotland is the place for fishing…
