On the fly this week
It has been a busy week with four saltwater flyfishing workshops delivered. Alan Chadfield from London flew in on Monday for a One Stop Solution to techniques and methods for saltwater bass fishing on the fly.
On Tuesday I enjoyed the company of Bill Mosse and his group of trout and salmon fishermen - the guys also wanted to know the basics of saltwater flyfishing and casting.
Fintan dropped in on Wednesday evening to try for a bass on the fly but was met with very difficult conditions - colored water and strong south westerlies.
