It is well-known that we in Ireland enjoy great natural freshwater fishing. From March to October visiting and local anglers alike cast their lines to catch fish, relax in wonderful countryside and have fun. The Foyle and Erne systems are both prime naturally stocked fisheries. We guide people on both, fishing for Brown Trout, Sea Trout and Atlantic Salmon, with occasional Pike fishing.

Fly-fishing for Salmon takes place mainly on the Finn, the Mourne, and their tributaries with fly-fishing for Sea Trout in the evenings and at night. While Brown Trout are also readily available on these rivers the cream of the fly-fishing for them, especially Mayfly fishing for Brown Trout, takes place on Lough Erne.

Based in Omagh in the heart of Co Tyrone, ReelDeal is ideally placed for both the Erne and Foyle systems, where some of Europe’s best value in quality Salmon and Trout fly-fishing may be found. Both are surrounded by beautiful countryside and there is plenty to do and see, plenty of good quality accommodation, good food, good company and that vital Irish ingredient – the Crack!

Reel Deal Locations

Fish the Foyle

ReelDeal guide and coach anglers on rivers and loughs of the Foyle – Mourne, Finn, Derg, Strule, Owenkillew, Glenelly, Camowen, Drumragh, Fairywater, Faughan and Roe for Atlantic Salmon (Salmo Salar), Sea Trout and Brown Trout (both Salmo Trutta). Your guide knows the best locations, the likely conditions and the relevant permits (Click here for more).

Fish the Erne

When being guided on the Erne, fishing for Brown Trout is the norm, although Pike (Esox Lucius) are now a popular target for visiting anglers – we can facilitate either. From our 19’ traditional Irish Sheelin boat operated by your guide, you can fly-fish or troll with someone who knows the lough and the best fishing locations and times. We also use the Erne and other loughs to introduce boat angling to those who haven’t tried it before or want to learn more about it (Click here for more).


As well as teaching fly-fishing on river or lough to anyone who wants to start or improve, coaching takes place at local fisheries with lessons for individuals or ‘angling schools’ as a group / family / holiday activity. Fun is the key, as we can provide equipment and a safe environment (Click here for more).
