Cascade, I am heading to Ireland the first week in September and fishing the Blackwater. It is my first trip to Ireland and my first time fishing for Atlantic Salmon. To say I am excited is an extreme understatement. I'm spending a few days in Dublin (getting the coveted pint of Guiness from its birthplace), a few days on the coast, a few days in Cork and most importantly - a few days fishing for Salmo Salar.
I was wondering if you could pass on some advice to a young flyfisherman. I saw your post about some good flies (Black and Gold, Yellow Ally, Willie Gunn, Gary Dog and Munroe Killer). Would you say those would do pretty well on the Blackwater? Is there a good website that gives a recipe on how to tie them up?
Any advice you could give would be well appreciated.
~Fish on~
