Home “Fishing for a good time, starts with throwing in your line” (Tom Waits)


Want to know more or book your fishing trip check out the services we offer.

My name is Richy Biggar and my passion is fishing with plugs, spinners and flies. I have been teaching English (M.A., Dip T.E.F.L.) for twenty five years and fishing for almost twice that, so if your first language is not English and you want to improve your level, see Ireland and catch fish, then why not contact Fish The Wild Atlantic. Those whose first language is English are, of course, also very welcome.

I speak Spanish and French and can give you a bit of background on the historical sites we encounter on our fishing trips. I can also advise an accommodation in the Westport area. You can choose between deluxe Spa Resorts, Hotels, B & B’s and self catering accommodation. Westport is not only  a tourist hub, it is also a living breathing Irish town and a vibrant one at that. In fact Westport was voted ‘Best Place To Live In Ireland’ by the Irish Times.

Finally, I should add that all the fish in the pictures throughout this website provided wonderful meals, but these days I tend towards ‘catch and release’. The choice, however, I leave completely to you.

I look forward to meeting you.
