Its great to be working with Irish people,working on new ideas and creating opportunities here, so I guess it was a natural thing when Probassfisher and Viseprey teamed up to offer a range of saltwater flies for bass fishing. Certainly the flies have been very successful along many of the south and eastern coastlines from Wexford, Waterford, Cork and into Kerry. That evidence is visible throughout this site, with lots of 'fishing work' actually done and hard won data learned on the ground, these are not the latest hottest items with a facebook solution.
Our collaboration has focused on the correct fly selection for increased success according to your specific location and the bass fishing requirements at these locations during the season. Hence there are some subtle variations within the kits.
It is also the intention to provide saltwater fly kits for solutions to your Mullet fishing, sea trout fishing and a tentative attempt at some Gilthead bream, bearing in mind the GHB is still very much experimental for us.
Many flies from these kits will cross over to different species at different times, for example some of the seatrout flies will cross over into early season estuary bass solutions
You can order your fly kits for a particular location, time or species or you can simply peruse the recommended lists and order what you need to fill the gaps in your fly box. There is a minimum purchase quantity of eight flies.
To many anglers Wexford and bass fishing are an integrated saltwater fly fishing opportunity, but within that circumstance mullet, seatrout and gilthead bream are all potential targets.
