Adventure: Angling in Ireland

Ireland offers a lot for the adventure fisherman. Whatever the specific inclinations of the sport fisherman -- sea angling, coarse angling, or game angling - Ireland offers it. Ireland’s main attraction as an angling destination is its clean waters that is home to a large quantity of quality sport fish. The uncrowded atmosphere further contributes to the abundance of quality fishing spots. The pollution free environment that is free from any large commercial fishing enterprises has contributed to Ireland’s quality fishing destinations. All a visitor has to do is rent a car in Ireland and go to the quality fishing sites located all over and book the fishing trip of a lifetime. Some of the species that a fisherman can test his skills with are bream, rudd, roach, tench, dace, eels, perch, trout, salmon and carp are among the species available for freshwater angling. On the other hand, flounder, sole, conger, wrasse, dogfish, dabs, mullet, shark, cod, coalfish, skate and turbot (among others) are the species that can be caught by those who want to try sea angling. Pike is also available for fishing in the freshwater and presents a good challenge for those wanting to do battle with the large fish. Some of the good locations for freshwater angling is the river Shannon and its many tributaries, the Erne catchment and the Blackwater valley. Coarse angling largely takes place from a canal bank or river bank as well as on special platforms located at lake shores. Ireland offers these in abundance for the comfort of fishermen. Renting a car in Ireland is the best way to reach these fishing destinations on your own or to offices that will bring you to these destinations (most especially for those who want to fish in the ocean). Car hire companies are readily available in the country and offer tourists quality service.
