Craig Murphy

craig-profileBorn and living in Dublin, Craig Murphy has become one of Ireland’s well respected specimen hunters. Traveling the entire country after his quarry, Craig is as comfortable fishing in freshwater as he is in saltwater and the wide range of species that he chases ensures that he is kept busy right the way through the year. Summer tench, winter roach, autumnal tope or spring shad are all viable targets for Craig, a thinking angler who is always looking for new baits, techniques and gear in a bid to fool bigger and more wary specimens than have featured in his previous captures. More recently, Craig can be found contributing to ‘Off the Scale’, Ireland’s online angling magazine where you can read about his specimen exploits and a few hints and tricks to try to catch your own.
