You will find all you need on

http://www.irishmaps.ie/productlistingM.cfm?SeriesID=11

or www.osi.ie.............this is the ordnance survey or Ireland.
I have used these maps for years and they are very detailed, even down to showing individual houses. You won't go wrong with these.

If you are fishing canals than look to purchase the "coarse angling guide to the grand and royal canals of Ireland"...a great little book showing the anglng hot spots. Costs about 7...in real money :)
The URL is: http://www.shannon-fishery-board.ie/guides/coarse/mullingar-royalcanal.htm

Hope that helps

You could check out your local branch of Waterstones too, if they don't have the one you want they'll get it for you (think the last one I got took a week to arrive)

Ordinance Survey,, they have a website, and you can order them online i think.. One good bit of advice is make sure the scale is 1:50,000 or 1:25,000 that should be detailed enough. (this means for every 1cm on the map it relates to 50,000 or 25,000cm on the ground.) Hope this helps in your choice..

Hello Al, I have used www.irishmaps.ie to order ordnance survey maps of Ireland, very quick delivery.

P.s the Discovery series are the ones I found are the best.

Al,

One of Irelands finest tackle shops is in Enniskillen. It's called "Home, Field & Stream". They will be able to point you to the best places/pegs in the locality of Enniskillen town. They have a site and google will get them. Well worth a call as they will also be able to give you the dates of the annual Bream migration through the town, although the Round O Jetty pegs get very busy at that time of year.
If you want a detailed map of the area, you need the "Fermanagh Lakeland outdoor pursuits map and navigation guide". It is 1:25000.
That clearly identifies the hundreds of fishing stands in the area. However as the upper lough and Enniskillen are in Northern Ireland you will find that the supplier of that map is either a local shop or "The Ordnance survey of Northern Ireland".

Having spent 6 holidays afloat in the area I can recommend some stands within 5/10 miles of Enniskillen. These would include Lisnaskea Ski club...a drop off shelf to 6mtrs and regularly fished by UK visitors and I have never seen a ski boat, Derryadd, Carrybridge..in fact many of the inlets around the Derrylin area.

As you will be in Northern Ireland you will need a rod licence and fishing permit....bailifs are active. HFS will supply them. A yearly combined licence costs about 25. I think you can get an 8 day for about 8/10.

The other thing you may need to consider is to bulk up your line and floats. I have been know to sling out an 8gram. It needs it as the lough can get choppy. HFS have a good stock of these heavier and slider floats. Finally you can't beat prebaiting an area. I have found that 5 or 6 grapefruit size balls slung in, works wonders when I come back and moor up three days later. The place has been heaving with fish. As a result I have pulled in 15 large bream and a bunch of large roach in just over 2 hrs from Geaglum quay .

Nice one mate just goes to show what a great bunch you are on this site,

I will have to say no to your offer as i am terrible for misplacing and losing things but thank you very much for the offer mate.

Another thing about Ireland is if you find a lake and a peg you like if you put a bank stick in it saying pre baited for (next days date ) no one will touch it or use that swim. It is an unwritten rule. What we did last year was print out some labels and plastic coated them and made some stakes. We pegged a section of lake for 4 days and no one tried to fish there or interfere with the pegs. Prebaiting is essential We put in about 20 cricket ball sized amounts every night to hold the bream. It worked....I use to go to Enneskillin to fill up with Petrol from Belturbot ( my company car petrol card only vallid in Northern Ireland. Took about 3/4 to 1hr. so go down to Belturbot the fishing is great. Enneskillin has a good river flowing through it and it looked tasty. Finnaly I have a map of Ireland you can have. just PM me your address and I`ll post you it.m8...Haydn
