Book with us an unforgettable day for the youngest and get an insight into the wonderful world of fishing.

Patrick takes you on your journey and show you in a simple way and with lots of fun how to become a great angler.

We start with a short introduction about the fish in Lough Derg and the choose of the right equipment and baits.

Then everyone grabs their life jacket <safety first> and off they go on the jetty.

There we first try to put the maggots on the hook, which are the favourite food of the "Whitefish".
With rod and float we try to tease the roach and rudd but also the small perch to bite and become our first catch.

After about 1 hour we start on one of our 19ft Lakeboats, now it gets exciting for Mom or Dad too because they are also allowed to come on board.
No we are heading on the beautiful Lough Derg to our first fishing area where the chase is on for big and small (Jacks) pike, perch and trout.

Our little fishermen learn how to land their catch and set off the hook and also how to release the fish safely back into the lough.

If the right portion of "fish fingers" is caught you are also welcome to take them with you for barbeque or breakfast.


Our workshops lasts approx 3 to 3.5 hours and offers space for 1 to 4 children. Of course you are welcome as parents, depending on the number of children 1 to 2 accompanying persons can join the boat.
