VIP Fishing Trips to IrelandAOK Events have been given the opportunity in 2006 to sell to our clients fishing on the River Blackwater, in between Waterford & Cork. This is a new and unique opportunity, as getting high quality fishing nowadays is hard to come by, especially for the corporate market.
The following information gives you an outline of what is on offer. We will create each event separately, making your event work for you, achieving your own objectives.
The River Blackwater, is a major salmon river offering Spring, Summer, and Autumn fishing with excellent runs of fish throughout the year. It's name comes from the dark colour imparted to the water by the peat through which it permeates. It flows over sandstone, and is a swift and rocky spate river in it's upper reaches. It has a stony bed in most places, but in the lower and middle reaches, the nature is pool and stream, with some weed and long sandy flats.
The variety of methods used on the Blackwater is one of it's great attractions. Spinning and fly fishing are allowed on all parts of the fishery, but in some areas the use of worm is prohibited.
The salmon angling season opens on February 1st and ends on September 30th. The main grilse run arrives around the second week of June and continues until the end of July. August and September normally sees grilse and large salmon coming in together in good numbers.
We will manage and organise everything for your experience allowing you the peace of mind that your clients will expect a professional and first class event.
