If you’re after big wild Irish brown trout Keith is your man! very helpful and a fantastic fly tier

Shaun Brown

I’d spent a lot of time watching YouTube vids and trying to teach myself how to fly fish, with very little success on the water.  I had a two hour lesson from Keith, and gained more from those two hours, than the days wasted on YouTube or at the river catching trees and spooking fish.  I’ve since had a number of casting lessons , and spent time on the river with Keith. His knowledge is exceptional, he is personable his ability to teach and part with that knowledge is excellent .  As with alI sports and skills, I believe that regardless of your level or experience,  a coaching session would help any angler looking to improve their game,  and Keith is an excellent coach.

I first met Keith Mc Donnell some years ago at the Galway fly fair since then I have had some dealings with him, he is an fountain of knowledge when it comes to streamer flies for trout, exceptional caster, casting instructor, fly tier, very professional in what he loves doing he is also a pleasure to deal with and above all a gentleman.
I would recommend Keith and any information  gained from Keith would be an investment and exceptional learning curve with one of the best in the business.

One of the pioneers of American style big streamer fishing for wild river browns in Ireland. Awesome flies, very helpful modest angler. Great photographer

Tomas Pastorek

I met with Keith on Galway Fly fair few years back and we had a great chat about streamer tactics,he was very helpful and his knowledge about streamer fishing it’s amazing,his flies are work of art and i still have some of his flies which I found great when I’m tying my own just to see and feel right proportions.

Tied a few of your articulated streamers after seeing you on Peter Drivers Saturday night fly tying. Have used them to great effect and wow yes they do attract a particular size of fish. Many thanks and well done

Joe Russell

I read an article or comment somewhere online – it read something like when people are heading back to the car as the rivers high and cloudy saying its to high and dirty to fish you smiled and thought – perfect conditions . Now I always take my streamer rod just incase the rivers high and dirty when Iarrive . It works and you’ve added another dimension to my fly fishing game . Good luck with things and WELL DONE!

I hooked and landed a specimen sized sea trout north of 5lb on my local river, thanks to one of Keith’s Boyne Bugger articulated flies. A fish of a lifetime that will live long in my memory! Keith’s passion for and ability to catch big fish is very inspiring. A quick look through some of the amazing pictures of his catches helps to keep my dream of landing that big brownie alive.

Master Casting Instructor and Swift Fly Fishing Ambassador

I’ve known Keith for a number of years, his knowledge and attitude is incredible, he is the “Godfather” and “goto” for Uk & Ireland streamer fishing, if you want help, flies or techniques then Keith is the man to ask. I was lucky enough to receive a collection of flies from Keith and this helped expand my knowledge on how to tie these often complex patterns. He’s also a handsome devil.

Damien O'Brien
Fly Casting Instructor, Angler & Conservationist

Keith is both innovative and pioneering in how he approaches fishing for big trout. He is to the forefront when it comes to streamer fishing and his patterns have proved to be extremely effective, not just here in Ireland, but also in rivers as far away as Patagonia. Keith is also a highly qualified casting instructor, guide and mentor and his instruction techniques are successful  at all levels, from complete beginner to advanced casters. I can highly recommend Keith for all things fishing, just don’t ask him to sing!

Philip White
FlyFishing Author, River Keeper, Casting Instructor, Guide and master fly tyer

I have fished for over 60 years and taught Fly Tying and fishing for over 50.  In that time I have met a small number of guys who stand apart as true specialists and who inspire others.  Keith is one of that small elite band.  His Streamers and method of fishing have certainly inspired this ‘old dog’ to try some new tricks when I get back on the river.

Jasper Mathews

I owe Keith for quite a few quality fish at this stage and for hours of frustration saved on learning to fish streamers, his flies work, his techniques work and he as a way of sharing them which instills confidence and gets results
