This pattern I tied for a very good friend, it  is based on the well known Bibio fly pattern. This is a great pattern for rivers or fishing a team of three on the loughs.



The Bibio  variant.

A great salmon pattern.

Fly fishing in Ireland is fantastic with so many rivers and loughs to choose from, with many  species to target.

Before doing any fishing its best to find out what is free water,and what is classed as day permits or private, 

​as in fishing clubs.Where ever you fish in any country do not assume you can just cast a line anywhere.

This is one of the many loughs in Ireland which hold a good head of hard fighting wild brown trout.

When looking at a river like this, it shouts out 

fishing.This is the upper Caragh, a great piece of water with many good size fish in it.

A good day on the fly rod at  the

pier. Pollock was the catch of  the

day.

This page is dedicated to a very good friend of mine, Ant Dodson, who over many years has been going out to Ireland Fly fishing and now lives there with his partner Julie .  As all fly fishermen know, there is something special about Ireland and fishing .When sitting down looking at books on large Salmon, Sea trout, Brown trout and, not forgetting, Salt water species,  Ireland has all of  this to offer.
