Irish Angler Review of Renvyle's Hardy & Greys Fly Fishing Weekend

Fishing in Connemara in the 1960’s

It's amazing how long a good Spring Clean of one's office can take. Especially, if you keep finding treasures such as the 1960′s brochure of 'Fishing in Connemara', to sidetrack you. A job I thought would take one day has taken quite considerably longer but I've a stash of interesting things and a much organised office now!

All statistics show that fishing in the Connemara area in the middle of the last century was very popular. It still is today, in fact figures show that as many fishermen (and women) come to Ireland as golfers. Imagine your visitors with such options as fishing for Brown Trout at Kankoige (near Ballyconnelly), Truska (north west of Lough Anaserd) or Whiskers Lough (opposite the gates of Bunowen Castle). This brochure is a font of knowledge and well worth having a look through. It also gives plenty of information on other interests in Connemara for those accompanying fishing enthusiasts but who may not be as enthusiastic. Activities such as Bird Watching, Beachcombing, Botany, Pony Trekking, Golf, Boating and more

I've scanned a PDF version of this brochure in two parts for you to have a look at: Fishing in Connemara Part 1 and Fishing in Connemara Part 2
