Charlotte Chilcott attended this year’s Irish Fly Fair on 9th & 10th November 2013 at The Galway Bay Hotel in Salthill, Co Galway. In it’s fourth year, the show brought a host of the world’s greatest fly dressers, casters and angling celebrities to celebrate all things angling.
Visitors had the opportunity to watch some of the best International fly dressers showcasing their art, whilst champion fly casters were demonstrating and advising on fly casting techniques and fly fishing tactics undeterred by the slightly gusty conditions.
Amongst the angling celebrities were Charles Jardine, Hywel Morgan, Glenda Powell, Peter O’Reilly, all of whom demonstrated and advised on every aspect of fly fishing.
Huge thanks to Stevie Munn and his energetic team for a fantastically well organised show and to all those who visited the stand to chat about both past and future trips.
Particular thanks to Toby Merigan for making room in the heavily packed Funky Fly Tying van for the stand banners and to the ever patient PMG Tackle, who took being roped into various set up and take down activities with endless good humour.
