Hi Gordie, after an Irish wedding pissing into the wind may not be such a bad idea! It will be at least 60% proof, so it could be a case of getting your own back !!
On a more relevant note make sure you get a rod licence from a Post office and keep your flies small. A size 8 is regarded as large.
Size 10& 12 are a good starting size, plenty of water at the moment, when low 14 & 16 for low water. Flies with plenty of orange and gold, yellow and orange,
red and black or black and silver.
Patterns like, Bann Specials, Flame Throwers,bloody Butcher and stoats & Silver Stoats tails, Cascades and Alleys shrimps.
They should do, there will be some LOCAL patterns.
If you tye your own, send off for some local versions of patterns.
I have found that in Ireland may have the same name as a classic, but the finished fly is NOTHING like the original.( 40 years of fishing in Ireland )I live in England !
Hope this helps
