Autumn Bassing with Richie Ryan....

Richie Ryan, one of Cork Harbour's top bass anglers and certainly one of the top guides around, has reported that the bass fishing has stepped up a notch in recent weeks. One would expect the fishing to become a bit more hectic in the Autumn as the bass feed voraciously prior to the onset of winter. However, after such a peculiar season none of the usual habits and routines of this much sought after predator could be relied upon. With this in mind its great to see that Richie has been putting his clients on the fish, and its not just one or two.

Richie reports that recently they have had some cracking sessions with fish falling to soft plastics, surface lures, and the fly. In fairness to Richie, he's steadily building a reputation for consistency. All through the spring and summer months, when everyone else was struggling with their bass angling, Richie was managing to winkle out the fish for his clients, despite the conditions. 

Richie has a vast knowledge of marks and knows the harbour inside out with its many estuarine features, creeks, and backwaters. This has certainly come into play this season and Richie has reported that some banker marks haven't produced this year whereas other normally less prolific marks are producing better results. 

Bass angling is unusual. Just when you think you have it sussed everything is turned on its head. However, Richie's clients are getting the benefit of his experience in this regard as Richie has been able to cover all bases this season and keep his clients on the fish. Well done Richie!!!

Here are a selection of pics of some recent fishing with Richie. If you'd fancy a day's fishing with Richie you can contact him on 00-353-86-1940744 or check out his website on
