Ireland's first licensed fly fishing boat

Congratulations to club member Richie Ryan who has just received his P2 licence. Richie's boat Seahawk is now the first and only licensed saltwater fly fishing boat in Ireland. Following his retirement as Comander in the Navy, Richie is now concentrating his efforts in providing a guiding service from Cork Harbour. Richie will be concentrating on his first love, fly fishing, but will also be lure fishing in general. Obviously, bass will be the main target but also in his sights are thick lipped mullet, golden grey mullet, gilthead bream, seatrout, pollack, and many more species. Richie brings a wealth of knowledge to play having developed his skills from an early age targeting salmon on the river Barrow. However, don't let his expertise intimidate you as he will be welcoming clients of all skill levels from the complete novice angler to the more experienced. If you fancy a day out with Richie contact him through his website at
