Steven Moates - Ireland




My name is Steven Moates. I am a keen fly fisher for salmon and trout from County Down in Northern Ireland. I am a qualified Guide and Casting instructor (NAGC, GAIC,). Also an avid fly tyer I very much enjoy catching my fish on my own creations. I specialise in Irish Salmon Shrimp patterns.
I have demonstrated my fly-tying at many of the Loughs Agency Angling Fairs and promotional events throughout the United Kingdom, Ireland and Holland. I have fly-fished and guided anglers for many years across Ireland and now work full time as a fishery protection officer for The Loughs Agency.
I enjoy travelling to shows and meeting people with an interest in tying and sharing tips on various patterns. I still fish the magnificent River Mourne and Finn catchments, this year we are having great runs of Salmon and this is providing fishing is great for locals and visitors alike.
