Richie Ryan bags some big Bass....

Club member, Richie Ryan, has been getting some superb bass lately. Across is a picture of a magnificent 12lb bass caught on an angel kiss plug recently. Unfortunately, Richie did not have a certified scales with him at the time so he will not be claiming an official specimen fish as he was anxious to return the fish as quickly as possible. Well done Richie!
Cian Ryan, Richie's son, is one of the people who is benefiting from Richie's expert tuition. Cian is no mean angler himself having clinched the Munster Juvenile Deep Sea Angling Championship in 2009. However, this was a milestone for Cian as it was his first salt water fly caught fish. Hence, the broad grin.

Another group of anglers who benefited from Richie's guiding and fly fishing expertise were from Sky Sports Italy. They were recently filming a clip to be aired on Sky Sports on fly fishing within Cork Harbour. Richie brought them to one of his favourite marks that produces excellent pollack fishing on the fly. In Richie's own words they 'murdered' the fish. I'm sure it will make for interesting TV viewing when we get to see it!!!
