TESTIMONIALS

Andrew’s guides are the best. Each one is pleasant, courteous, fun to be with, and an exceptionally good fisherman. They understand the water, the fish, the insects, and know how to give their clients a great day on the water — and it’s beautiful water too. I’ve enjoyed everyday spent with these guys on the water

By Barry & Cathy Beck

For over fifty years it has been my great good fortune to fish for trout and salmon all over the world and with hundreds of guide-services. I can tell you honestly that none of those services puts clients on fish more professionally, expertly, and agreeably than Andrew Ryan’s Clonanav Fly Fishing. Andrew does a world-class job with every aspect of his outfitting and guiding operation,
