Traditional and GPS Fishing Maps of Lough Corrib and Lakes in the West of Ireland
At AnglingCharts I produce cruising charts & fishing maps. I survey lakes and create GPS and paper charts - purely as a non-commercial venture. It's a pastime, much the same as fly fishing is a pastime. Expensive, time consuming, and occasionally very satisfying. It also seems to be becoming quite a geological and archaeological adventure.
On this website you'll find a growing collection of charts which I can either let you have completely free, or for a small price. There are paper charts of well known boating & fishing lakes, iPad Charts, GPS charts , some free downloads, Android charts, lots of interesting "stuff", including wrecks and amazing sidescan sonar imagery, tutorials to help you make your own charts, and The Lough Corrib Chart Book
The Lough Corrib Chart Book can be bought from Charlie Byrnes Bookshop in Galway, and signed copies can be bought directly for postal delivery from email@example.com (using Paypal). Unsigned copies are sold on Blurb and Amazon.
I've just released V 3.3 of AnglingCharts Corrib for Garmin. It contains the latest marker positions. As well as containing the results of all the latest sidescan surveys there are many important updates to bathymetry and points of interest. It also now contains many more of the local names of shallows and marks.
New Lough Corrib Fishing Chart for Garmin Nuvi. A new Nuvi optimized version has been published, perfect for boat fishermen who don't want to buy a GPS sounder, and have a Nuvi in the car ! It is fully contoured for the whole lake, has soundings, vastly improved bathymetry - all the shallows and holes, and all the convenience. Screenshots here
New iPad and iPhone chart of Lough Corrib. The new buoyage system, launch sites and slipways, historical points of interest, vast amounts of new bathymetry, new anchorages, new routes, fully contoured and gloriously clear.
The latest version of the Garmin GPS charts of Lough Corrib are FREE with the purchase of a Corrib Wallchart
The old GPS charts for Garmin marine devices will now display entirely the wrong configuration and marker numbering, and due to the introduction of many new individual markers could be DANGEROUS. It will now be the case that a single red buoy should be kept to port when proceeding in the direction of buoyage. This is entirely misrepresented on all the old GPS charts made by myself but still being sold by CorribCharts, and all the pre-version 3.0 Garmin charts from AnglingCharts. They will lead the user into danger.
There is also a new safer routing system being employed which has substantial differences to the present system.
There are the usual disclaimers on all the GPS charts, but there is a duty of care which I take very seriously. To continue distributing outdated and dangerous charts would be wholly irresponsible.
A new GPS chart is now available that contains all of the currently modified buoyage and a huge amount of newly surveyed areas, These are of course free of charge to existing users of my Garmin G2 charts, and are a simple matter to update on your present cards. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
The latest development version (3.25) of the GPS chart now includes LOUGH MASK. Contact the website for details.
This edition is fully contoured from Galway to Maam. Contains newly discovered dropoffs and shallows, and the recent historic wreck discovery. As a fishing map the new chart is unbeatable. If you are considering a holiday fly fishing in Ireland, on Lough Corrib, a GPS in your pocket loaded with this chart could take you right to the fish !
