Fishing in Blue Stacks Highlighted in New Film

15th November 2011
Fishing in Blue Stacks Highlighted in New Film
#ANGLING - A new film on fishing in south Donegal will have its premiere this Thursday, the Donegal Democrat reports.
The film, The Blue Stack Mountains, is the fourth in a series on angling in Ireland by German producer Dietrich Bohnhorst, whose previous fishing documentaries have been broadcast on television around the world.
According to Bohnhorst, who has lived in Donegal for 25 years, his latest film “describes a journey from Glenties, through Commeen, Stranorlar, Ballybofey and back over Barnesmore Gap to Donegal town."
It also pays special attention to “about 40 lakes which lie in the Blue Stacks, how to get there and where to fish, what flies to use and so on.”
Bohnhorst hopes his film will help to break the "invisible line" that he says has cut off the "under-promoted" Donegal from the marketing of angling in Ireland.
All are invited to the premiere at Solis Lough Eske Castle this Thursday at 8pm. Admission is free.

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.
