The Telegraph in the UK has published its obituary of Peter O’Reilly, the “doyen of Irish fly fishing”, who has died at the age of 78.

One of the biggest names in Irish angling, O’Reilly helped to popularise the sport of fly fishing locally — and put Ireland on the map for anglers from abroad — with a series of informative books published since the 1980s.
