North West Angling Services is owned by Ken Henry, a qualified guide who is also the founding member of the Professional Angling Guides of Ireland. They are based in Sligo Town.

North West Angling Services was set up in the late autumn of 1997 to promote game angling in the highly productive and relatively unspoilt region of the country comprising counties Sligo, Leitrim, and parts of Mayo and Roscommon.

The proprietor of North West Angling Services, Ken Henry, is a qualified marine and countryside guide. He is an approved Fáilte Ireland guide, as well as being a founder member of the Professional Angling Guides of Ireland (PAGI).

Amongst the fisheries available is the beautiful Lough Gill where, on average, more than 100 highly prized spring salmon are landed by rod and line each year. The equally spectacular Lough Arrow, a rich limestone lake in south Sligo, boasts one of the most prolific brown trout fisheries in the country. Specimens of 6lb and greater are caught during the exciting mayfly season.

Magnificent river fishing is also available. The small spate River Easkey in west Sligo enjoys significant grilse runs and provides great sport to the committed angler during the summer months. In addition to these treasures, the keen angler can avail of excellent sea trout, brown trout, and rainbow trout fisheries throughout the region and, perhaps more importantly, over an extended season from January to October.
