Guiding the Sixmilewater River in County Antrim

Stevie Munn Sixmilewater

If you want to fish somewhere you haven't been to before, then a Guide like Stevie can make all the difference between success and failure.

The Sixmilewater River in County Antrim is a highly productive river that enters Lough Neagh at Antrim Town. Stevie grew up fishing this river and knows it intimately. There is good river trout fishing throughout the season which runs in N. Ireland from March to the end of October.  Later in the season it has runs of Salmon and Dollaghan, a Trout which behaves in a similar way to a Sea Trout but instead of going to sea it runs to Lough Neagh which is the largest freshwater lake in the UK, covering a mammoth 153 sq. miles (400 sq. km). The Dollaghan grow in many ways similar to Salmon up to 2lb or 3lb every year while in the Lough due to the feeding there, this makes them one of the biggest wild Brown trout with many specimens being caught most seasons.

Stevie will help you chose the right place to fish, make sure you have the right equipment and use the right techniques. On top of that he will provide transport, lunch if needed and an endless supply of fishing knowledge, talk and enthusiasm.

"It wasn't about catching BIG Brown Trout. It wasn't about the opportunity to catch a lot of Brown Trout. It wasn't about even having a claim to catching truly wild Brown Trout. If anything, it was about.. a spiritual journey that can't be quite explained. It was about "going home" - if you can call "home" as some place you haven't visited in 23 years."

Hi Stevie,
I had a great day thank you. Later in the summer I'd like to get another day with you, to spend some time learning about the entomology side of things, and learning what flies to use at different times of the day and year - and fishing as well obviously.
I was fascinated by the way you predicted & identified the hatch etc. and would like to be able to do that type of thing. I'll certainly be recommending you and the six mile water.

Prices from £150 per day, plus travelling expenses.
