FLY/BAIT/LURE FISHING GUIDED TRIPS with KENNY SLOAN, fishing for big pike, trout or salmon in various waters and venues around Foxford on the west Coast of Ireland.

Kenny has fished in these waters around the Foxford area for more than twenty years and knows them as well as anyone. This was aptly demonstrated to all of us here at Piketrek this Summer when we visited Kenny for five days to check out his operation and do some fishing for pike on the fly.

Kenny is a very likeable and sociable kind of guy and really could not do enough to help us catch some fish on what proved to be a very difficult week, but due to his knowledge and experience all of us caught a few nice pike.

The venues that he has access to are all just a few minute's drive away from Foxford so the minimum time is spent travelling to fish and more is actually spent fishing. Even moving from one venue to another during the same day, complete with boat motors and other paraphanalia only takes a short while and Kenny is pefectly willing to move you if the fishing proves tough on any particular lake.

Kenny has his own craft on four different lakes and all of these were fished during our stay. They all contain big pike to well over twenty pounds, although the average size of fish we caught was around the nine pound mark, give or take the odd pound. The biggest one we had was fourteen pounds plus but we did back that up with a few other low doubles, even the smaller ones fought like maniacs and gave us a good time even though the weather was against us.

His experience on these lakes proved extremely invaluable to us, and I am sure that we would not have caught as many fish as we did without his help.....and that, believe me, is worth paying for.

Kenny will also rent you a boat directly on these lakes (if his guiding services are not required) at very reasonable rates, certainly less than other boat-hire operators locally. His boats are all well-equipped with all you need for a good, safe day afloat, and are rigged with trolling mounts etc. for those who like a bit of trolling either for the pike or indeed the huge brown trout that live in some of these waters.....FEROX. You should see some of the enormous Brownies that he has caught over the last few years....quite astonishing.

Kenny also has all manner of tackle for you to use, no matter which discipline you want, and his knowledge of the salmon lies in the River Moy (which runs past the bootom of his garden!) is second to none. I intend making use of this sometime in the not-too-distant future in order to catch my first salmon on the fly!

To sum-up....Kenny is a really hard-working guide who will certainly put you on to some solid, reliable fishing. He will accomodate your wishes from Stupid'o'clock in the morning till Silly'o'clock in the evening to make sure you have a good time if necessary....he certainly did with us even though the going was tough. Oh to be back on that Lough Conn.............HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! We will certainly be going back to see him again!
