Welcome to Ireland’s best fly-fishing event of the year!

The show will feature a range of exhibitors from all parts of the angling world; as normal, at its heart will be some of the world’s greatest fly dressers who will display their unique skills and craft. This year the show will be even better for the angling public as we have assembled the largest group of fly tyers ever to dress flies at any show in Ireland. At the moment, we have over 60 of the world’s most famous Fly Tyers from 15 different countries.

·There will also be a large number of trade stands selling all the top quality tackle brands and fly tying materials.

·We plan to hold a series of interesting and relevant angling talks from famous personalities.

·New for 2012 is a Fly-dressers’ Workshop with some of the greatest fly-dressers in the world passing on their wisdom and tips.

·Outside, there will be fly casting demonstrations and help clinics by famous anglers, among them Charles Jardine (England) Glenda Powell (Ireland) and Hywel Morgan (Wales)
