Ireland on the Fly

‘The mayfly is up’ – the four words that spark excitement and magic in a fly angler’s mind and it’s that time of year when the mayfly is now up on the jewel of Irish lakes, Lough Corrib.

So to get a taste of how the mayfly action has been so far this year and to find out why it’s such an important time – both culturally and economically - for local communities, we’re joined on this episode by Roy Peirce, the well-known angler, guide and owner of Grasshopper Cottage on the shores of the lake.
