"Far and away the best of the many books written about the area. A visitor who travels to Dingle without it is seriously deprived. The book is lovingly rich in information and is not merely an account of what you see when you pass a particular place. Seamed and textured, it recounts history, legend and lore. The book is excellent on places that are visited by thousands of visitors each year. Its merit, though, lies in the way it treats less popular areas with equal depth and care." Examiner
A stunning large format full colour portrait of this most beautiful part of Ireland, with sixty-eight photographs of the Dingle Peninsula, its coastline, its mountains, its people and its seasons. The text - an introduction and captions - is in English, Irish, French and German. Situated in the extreme south-west of Ireland, the Dingle Peninsula has been described by the National Geographic Traveler as "the most beautiful place on earth".
The first book travels round the Dingle Peninsula in an anti-clockwise direction visiting all the shore marks from Tralee, round Slea Head to Dingle, and on to Inch and Castlemaine. Surf, shore, estuaries, piers and deepwater rock marks; this book has them all with detailed directions on how to get to them, how best to fish them in relation to time of day and tide and what fish to expect etc. The book also has information on where to dig and collect bait and is interwoven throughout with a tapestry of fishing memoirs.
This second book is designed to complement the first. It describes all the various types of shore fishing to be found on the Dingle Peninsula. Surf, beach, estuary, piers and rocks, and the various methods employed. Each method is discussed with reference to different locations. Dangers are recognised, as well as what signs to look for on a strand; the best way to present certain baits, how best to work a spinner, plug or a fly, and there are illustrations of
This third book, unlike the other two angling books, will neither tell how, nor where, to catch fish; and it certainly won't point the reader in any sort of direction other than to a shoreline somewhere in Ireland. Rather, as may be inferred from the sub-title : Piscatorial Illustrations of a Lifetime Misspent, it's a book of photographs - taken by myself - and illustrated with text taken from a variety of my published articles.
