Dingle advice needed

Postby chuckaroo » Tue Jun 26, 2018 12:05 am

So it looks like I’m gonna fulfil a lifelong ambition and head down to fish the shore in Kerry in the coming weeks.
Now this will be a mega journey, 5 and a half hours driving each way!, so I really would appreciate any advice from anyone out there familiar with the Dingle peninsula.
The main aim will be bass on the fly but I will also try for them on soft plastics too, so it would be important to find the right habitat and depth of water. Can anyone give me some good pointers please??
PMs would be great. All info given will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
Thanks in advance
Charlie

Have heard of some good bass fishing in the Bunnawonder area the far side of Tralee.

Now an old stick stead's me
Against the howling tempests' breeze
No place on Earth to better be
For there, compares to no other

When the wild seas rage
Before Winter gathers in her gales
We'll chase the Bass along the bay
