    Outboard Engine Trackers Ireland

    Back in August, I posted a thread about outboard engine theft in Ireland, which involved boats either side of mine having their engines stolen. ......... With the tracker fitted, and the fact that I have one of the best available engine locks fitted and comprehensive insurance, there's no...

    Why I Use Maxima Ultragreen - Mostly

    The majority of my fishing these days is from a boat on Lough Corrib, for trout and the occasional salmon, with occasional forays to other similar limestone lakes in the West of Ireland. I don't like buzzer fishing, and I like to fish either dry flies or wet flies, and occasionally nymphs...

    Is Mourinho Fit For Purpose

    With Mourinho getting a suspended jail sentence for tax evasion, is he a fit and proper manager for the Premier League? I wonder what the board at Man U think about it? I don't know if it is still the same now, but from 2015 football agents no longer had to be licensed, but players had to...

    I am Able To Tell You - My Life Jacket Worked

    I won't name the lake or my boat partner/skipper for the day, but both the lake and my boat partner/skipper were a new experience for me. I was invited to join him for a day's fishing. It was last week and a rough day. When I first stepped into the boat for the day's fishing, I commented to my...

    Closure of Duffy’s Headford

    A sign of the times. Duffy's Headford store is now closed and will be a sad loss to the many anglers, who over many decades, have either bought an outboard engine, had an outboard engine serviced or bought a few bits and pieces for fishing the lakes. This was copied from one of the local...
