For 2014 and beyond.


Coastal destinations is the new bespoke adventure and saltwater guiding services available from Jim Hendrick during Spring 2014. After ten years of guiding on the southern coasts of Ireland I have changed the services to include a wider range of options and have made a few small changes too.

This alternative was necessary due to a changing fishery, it has taken a long time to learn and the planning and preparation involved is and remains considerable, a hidden part of the job I guess. 

Interest in coastal bass fishing continues and already bookings for 2014 are arriving weekly. Season planner will be up shortly for 2014.

Guided groups will be limited to two people and the minimum guided period is for three days only. Guiding for both fly and lure angling is provided with options to trek and fish and spend some time under the stars also available – all high quality equipment fishing and camping from Patagonia, Lightwave, Echo, and many proven others will also be provided as needed. All transport arrangements are included.

Any person interested in reducing their recreational angling impact on the environment will be interested to hear I will be incorporating a Leave No Trace ethos into our fishing and references to the principles will be a part of our guided fishing day spent together.

As I get time to layout the details more information will become available on over the next few weeks.

More silvery things to think about!

Where do you stop? When do you start to realise that what’s really obvious to you, often based on simple instinct, is generally true?

The fly in the wave just slowly tracking and moving – slowly

then stopped!

Bass fishing in Ireland

Nine pages of editorial in any magazine is beyond compare. In a magazine of the status held by Voyages de Peches its a major coup for Irish angling.

Julien La Journade a longtime champion of Irish fishing, accompanied by fly and lure fishermen Bob Hurley and Ronan Collins, made a fantastic week of fishing and memories on the southern coasts of Ireland during August.

This is the realistic report of those few days, the fun, the chat, the environment and the fishing challenges. Safari style fishing is my preferred option finding us fishing and staying in three or four counties during seven guided fishing days and nights.

Many thanks Julien and well done Ireland!
