  • Monday 8th June 2015: Kilmallock/Kilfinane Angling Club have begun an exciting new programme with the support of Limerick City and County Council to encourage and develop the next generation of fly anglers on the River Loobagh. In support of this initiative, Councillors Eddie Ryan, Michael Donegan, Gerald Mitchell and Brigid Teefy from the Kilmallock-Cappamore Municipal District presented the club with nine sets of fly fishing tackle at their training night in the riverside park, Kilmallock on Wednesday last 3rd June. The tackle was supplied at cost by John Quain of the Anglers Curse Tackle Shop, Main Street, Croom.

  • John is one of the nicest guys you could meet, gave me great advice….

  • I hadn’t fished in 25 years when my son expressed an interest in giving it a go. I dug out my old rods, but needed to get some tackle and bait. Being honest, I didn’t know where to go fishing, what to fish for or what bait to use. I called to John and Marie with my son – they were a mine of information. My son caught a Roach first day out and he has been hooked ever since (excuse the pun)! Thank you both for the time and sharing your knowledge.
