ReelDeal is run by Shane Rolston, a former Fishery Officer who has lived, fished and worked in the Foyle system for a lifetime. He has fished and run a boat on Lower Lough Erne for 20 years. He believes:


Fly-fishing is the adventure of a lifetime. It hooks you and you find it is more about the "doing" than it is about the catch, though we all like to catch fish! It’s not something that can be learned in one lesson or a series of lessons. It's a lifetime of learning.

Fly-fishing takes place in some of our most beautiful environments and increases our understanding of them. Having fished for 40 years, I'm still learning new fishing techniques and discovering new things.


As a coach he is

Licensing means that he has maintained training in

Having also achieved the OCN (Open College Network) Level 3 Angling Guide award via the Irish Angling Skills Centre, Shane has used the skills learned to coach and guide children and adults and is proud to have taken part in supervising competitors in the recent FIPS Mouche 12th World Youth Fly-Fishing Championships when they came to Ireland in 2013.

As a photographer and student of the countryside, environment and fisheries he takes an interest in these and the history of the areas he is working in. Through ReelDeal he guides visiting anglers and coaches and teaches individuals, small family groups, community groups and fishing clubs and will organise whatever they wish to do in fishing.
