Chris Ryan Profile Image




I joined Sportfish in 1999 from American tackle giant Orvis. I was the retail manager of the Sportfish Reading store during its building, setting up and early years.  In 2003, I relocated to the Sportfish Mail Order HQ at Winforton where I am currently the Buying and Catalogue Manager.

I have a keen interest in all types of game angling and i am lucky to have fished in many unusual and exotic destinations around the world including Uganda for Nile Perch;  the Maldives for GT’s, Sailfish and Tuna;  Zimbabwe for Trout and Bass; Kenya for Trout and Sailfish;  Cuba for Bonefish and Tarpon;  USA for Trout and Bass;  Ireland and the UK for Sea Bass;  Ireland, Scotland, New Brunswick and Russia for Atlantic Salmon;  Ireland and Wales for Sea-Trout.

I am lucky enough to have fished many of the rivers and loughs in Ireland and I am the resident expert on Irish Salmon and Sea-Trout fishing. I  also have an unrivalled passion for big game spinning with light tackle.

I can be contacted at Sportfish Winforton on 01544 327 111 or by email at     [email protected]
