Fishing Guides & Boat HireGhillies
For anyone not familiar with the lake we recommend the services of a ghillie (Fishing Guide) which we shall organise for you. He has expert knowledge of the lake, knows the conditions for fishing and can give advice on flies, baits and so on. He will have his own boat and outboard motor together with a limited supply of necessary tackle.
There is also an excellent tackle shop in Oughterard. However, if you have a favourite fly rod, it would be worth bringing this, if only because you are used to its action.
Each boat can take a maximum of three anglers plus the ghillie and the daily charge is in the region of Euro130.00 per boat per day. A half day can also be booked for E85.00 per boat.
Alternatively, Currarevagh Guesthouse has its own traditionally built clinker boats. Guests can rent these, either with or without outboards.
