After a long break from the water I finally managed to get back out amongst the waves this evening. A bit of survey work followed by a personally turbulent few days saw the fishing take a back seat for a few weeks.
This summer is going to see a very transient existence for myself, being spread between counties Clare, Galway, Dublin and Wicklow in the main. It gives me an opportunity to fish a wide range of areas which will be both a blessing and a curse………
There is a spot that I am very fond of for its sheer beauty. Way out west, it features a beach framed with dunes and the finest sand. Crystal clear water breaks onto the crescent shaped utopia. It was here we headed for today.
For the majority of the summer break from college I will be stationed by the Shannon estuary with the intention of contributing towards the research work that the Shannon Dolphin and Wildlife Foundation carry out.
Over the St. Patrick’s weekend I decided to travel a little further than Lough Corrib. With the rising temperatures and seemly more pleasant weather rolling in, I wanted to see if anything was stirring way out west in Connemara.
