Galway Welcomes Anglers for Irish Fly Fair

18th October 2010
Galway Welcomes Anglers for Irish Fly Fair

Fly fishing enthusiasts will converge on Galway next month as the city hosts the first annual Irish Fly Fair.

Some of the world's top fly tyers will be on hand to show off their craft, and professional casters will demonstrate how to make the most of your lure for catching trout, salmon and others.

The fair will also feature a marketplace where tackle suppliers and other dealers will be sure to offer great bargains for Christmas, while seafood dishes are definitely on the menu for visitors.

Those new to the sport can try their hand on a range of fly fishing simulators, and Galway Aquarium will introduce visitors to the wide range of wildlife in our coastal waters.

The two-day fair takes place at the Galway Bay Hotel in Salthill from 13-14 November. For details visit www.irishflyfair.com

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
