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.

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.
