Brian Russell Fly Fishing

Based in: United Kingdom 🇬🇧


Brian Russell, an accomplished Northern Ireland Fly Fishing Guide and three-time National Rivers Champion, resides in the heart of Ulster province in Northern Ireland. The region boasts a myriad of streams and waterways, offering some of the finest wild brown trout and Atlantic salmon fishing in Ireland. As a three-time National Rivers Fly Fishing Champion, Brian is the ideal host for your guided fly fishing adventure in Northern Ireland.

If you'd like to experience exceptional guided fly fishing across Ireland, contact Brian, and he'll take care of everything—from transportation to accommodations—to ensure your holiday or guided fly fishing tour in Ireland exceeds your expectations and creates lasting memories.

Even if you're visiting Ireland on business, Brian can arrange an evening of guided fly fishing, complete with all the necessary equipment. He provides top-notch guided fly fishing on local Rivers Bann, Cusher, Callan, and Lagan, all within a twenty-minute drive of his home in counties Armagh, Antrim, and Down. For a bespoke salmon fly fishing experience, consider the Rivers Finn and Owenea in County Donegal. Alternatively, Brian offers premier guided fly fishing on the River Mourne and its tributaries—Strule, Camowen, and Drumragh—in County Tyrone. The easily accessible Lough Erne in County Fermanagh, the Colebrooke River, and the Lough Neagh System, where Brian has fished for over 40 years, offer opportunities to catch trout, sea trout, dollaghan, and salmon.

If you'd like to combine your guided fly fishing in Ireland with sightseeing and golf, let Brian guide you along the rivers of the County Antrim Coast, where you can also visit the Giant's Causeway, Bushmills Distillery, or the Royal Golf Course in Portrush. Additionally, Brian has extensive knowledge of East Coast rivers from the Fane River in County Louth to the Slaney, with particular expertise in the Liffey in County Kildare and Kells Blackwater in County Meath.
