It may be that a student would like to learn about other subjects. Spiddal Angling School can also incorporate other modules into the course. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for further details.

Part 2: Practical course in casting

At Spiddal Angling School, we are surrounded by lakes and rivers, just minutes away from good fishing!

Students are brought to the river and receive lessons in casting. Each individual is tutored at his/her own pace in a friendly and relaxed manner. Remember, we cater for all levels of competency, from beginner to advanced. Each course is unique and designed by us to suit your skills. Spiddal Angling School will provide all the equipment, however, it is strongly advised that you bring your own safety glasses and rain gear.

Spiddal Angling School offers many guided fishing trips. Individuals or groups, including stag and hen parties are welcome. Please contact us, so we can assess your unique need.
