Description

Now in its fifth printing, this comprehensive guide to the fishing flies of Ireland critically assesses the trout, salmon and seatrout patterns currently ued by anglers in Ireland. In alphabetical order, it features the traditional Irish flies, plus the tried and tested flies that have been imported by anglers to Ireland: what they look like and the materials used to tie them the loughs and rivers on which they are most frequently used at what time of year and in which conditions to use them and, most importantly, the book discloses which flies the locals, from the River Bann at Coleraine to Lough Currane at Waterville, recommend Connemara Black, Green Peter, Murrough, Kingsmill, Beltra Badger - these are among the better-known Irish flies. But this book also features the more obscure, yet equally effective contenders, such as Mosely's Mayfly, the Ballinderry Black, Purcell's Peter and the Dabbler. The flies you will find here are as varied as the fishing of Ireland itself, from tiny dries, to emergers, to wet mayflies for the big loughs; and hairwings, tubes, mini-tubes and fully-dressed patterns for salmon. Peter O'Reilly, an expert flytyer has produced the flies photographed in this book, and - for added interest - he has included some regional patterns tied by local masters. This book is an invaluable reference work for all anglers in Ireland, whether locals or visitors.
