  • It’s still been a slow start to the salmon season for anglers - despite the first fish caught on Currane at the end of January by local angler, Kevin O’Shea - and with the country still recovering from Storm Dennis and many rivers unfishable, I thought this week would be a good time to step back a bit and hear about the story of Peter Mantle who, despite so many battles, obstacles and difficulties in his early years, built Delphi in Connemara up into one of the foremost salmon fisheries in Ireland.
    Peter of course went on to found Delphi Bahamas but it was with Delphi in Connemara that he found such success initially. 
    This episode is based on an interview I did with Peter in his house a few years ago.  It was the end of the season and Peter had come over to Ireland with his family for a few days r'n r.  Despite having worked in the Bahamas in recent years and moving back to the UK, it was obvious he still loved both Delphi and Connemara with them holding a special place in his heart.
    Peter is a natural raconteur and one can easily see why people invested in his Delphi dreams and also why the shared dinner table there became so legendary.
    This is story is all about Peter Mantle, his story, in his own words of becoming the Irish Delphi oracle….

  • Famed fly fishing historian and writer, and author of a History of Fly Fishing amongst other titles, Andrew Herd, is this week's guest on the Ireland on the Fly podcast.
    Andrew tells me about one of his most recent projects, The Blacker Trilogy, which details the life and flies of the 19th century County Wicklow fly tyer, William Blacker.
    Blacker moved to England to make his name and fortune as a fly tyer in London and through his books and reputation, came to influence British fly tying for the remainder of the century and beyond.
    Andrew tells me more about Blacker's life and legacy, why the influence of Irish fly tyers from the 1800s has been largely forgotten and gives an insight into his own fly fishing writing career.

  • We're into the last week of January and with still no news of a first salmon of the season caught, for this week's episode of Ireland on the Fly we're stepping back to bring you a documentary about the story of Blackwater Lodge.
    When the old Ballyduff Railway station was closed in 1967, it was to enjoy a remarkable second life as a salmon fishing lodge when Ian Powell bought the building and salmon beats on the Blackwater.
    This is story of the journey to make a fly fishing dream happen.
