Help SWFF Galway

Postby fluffchuckerkb » Wed Sep 08, 2010 1:25 pm

I'm heading to Galway for a few days and hoped to grab a few hours to myself for a bit of SWFF. Hoverver, I don't know any 'good' spots to try. I know the score: guys don't want to give away their favourite marks and these days, who could blame them. But I don't have the luxury and satisfaction of spending time finding out a few marks in the Barna area so if there was any charitable fellow saltwater fly fisher who also adopts a rigid catch and release policy like me - I'd be really grateful for the reach out via a private message. Regards in advance.
