Healing Waters Lodge - Montana

Trout fishing in Montana

After two wonderful trout fishing trips to South Western Montana Ken Whelan will bring you on a breath-taking tour of some of the finest, wild trout waters in the world. With his good friend Mike Geary, proprietor of Healing Waters Lodge and using a mixture of haunting video clips and stunning still images, Ken and Mike will describe how you too could enjoy blue ribbon trout fishing at its very best. Hear about legendary waters such as the Beaverhead, the Big Hole, the Jefferson and Ken’s favourites, the exquisitely intimate limestone spring creeks.

Why not join Ken and Mike for a bespoke, hosted trip in August 2020 – full details available from the Healing Waters stand at the show.
Ken Whelan
Ken runs his own fisheries consultancy.  He has been a keen angler since a very young age and has written extensively on angling topics. He has fished in many remote locations throughout the world: US, New Zealand, Chile, Canada and even the wild, untamed tundra of the Kola Peninsula and the exotic rivers of Mongolia. Ken has also produced, scripted and presented many films and videos on various aspects of Irish fisheries and angling. He is a regular radio contributor to Mooney Goes Wild on RTE.  Lucky to have weaved his hobby into his job, he is never quite sure whether he is working or enjoying himself!
