The Irish Ladies Flyfishing Association
The Irish Ladies Flyfishing Association was founded in 1990 by Anne Geary of Pontoon Bridge Hotel Foxford Co. Mayo. Anne took this brave step to support ladies who wished to fly fish and represent their country.
The Association organise fishing and social events throughout the year all over the country. Each year the Association helps to fund a team to compete in the Ladies International, against teams from England, Scotland and Wales.A series of four trials are used to select the team to represent Ireland at the Ladies International Flyfishing Championship. This year the International is being held in Wales.
They also aim to hold a series of ‘open days’ for the complete beginner and ‘training days’ for those wishing to improve their skills. Contact http://www.irishladiesflyfishing.com/contactus.html
