Adventure Travel



The land of my ancestors, the Emerald Isle and Brown Trout. If you like dry fly fishing for Native Brown trout in beautiful streams and rivers, Ireland is the place.  And the best place to fish from is Clonanav Fly Fishing!  Andrew Ryan has the best river fishing in Ireland at his disposal, and the knowledge of fishing it his entire life.  Based in the Nire Valley not far from the town of Clonmel, his fly fishing lodge can accomodate the angler and non-angler alike.  Visit his web site at

I compare it to fishing Montana 50 years ago. No big houses on the banks of the rivers, no posted streams and Rainbows and Browns of immense proportions on dry flies.  This is some of the finest fishing I have ever seen.  Since going there the first time in 2005, I've been back every year and have fished the Lake District down to Patagonia.  Along the way I have met some great people and wonderful lodges to stay in and fish out of.

The La Paloma River Lodge is in the same area as El Patagon and is built for six anglers.  It is located on the  Paloma River. The Coyhaique River Lodge is only a few years old, but already has the distiction of being a first class lodge and fishing destination.  In conjunction with the Picacho River Lodge, I will be offering an 8 or 10 day fishing adventure that will have you in both lodges for either 4 or 5 days of fishing.  Check out their links here: or .
