Double Dutch

    Father and son Pete and Harry Sliep have been to Ireland many times fishing but neither had ever caught a bass.
    They tasked Richie Ryan of Eire Bass to break that duck. Not one to shy from a challenge, Richie left the quayside in Cobh and within minutes both father and son had their first bass on board. In 30 years coming to Ireland fishing father Pete could not believe his luck. Four bass were caught and three lost in a quick session before their flight back to Holland that afternoon.They have promised to return and  book Richie again next year and to spread the word about Cork Harbour Bass.

Becs First Bass

John Roulston has fished for a number of years with Richie Ryan of Eire Bass and has had a lot of success on board "Sea Hawk" with Richie. John's daughter Rebecca needed to catch her 1st bass so he turned to the Eire Bass guide to get that bass.  Richie has a bit of a reputation for organising that elusive 1st catch and within a short while Becs had her first ever bass on board. The fish was a fine 6 lb. and the smile on the photo says it all. She also boasted that it was bigger than her brother's first bass, also on board.
