For anyone who is a fan of the excellent "Ireland on the Fly" podcast, or anyone who has a love of fly fishing in Ireland, Daire Whelan has released a book "Haunted by Waters".


Of course the title refers the the final line from perhaps the most famous work of fiction on fly fishing, "A River Runs Through It" by Norman Maclean.

Synopsis as follows:

"in Haunted by Waters: A Journey into the Irish Countryside we travel with Daire throughout a season of fly fishing. But as he searches for a sense of meaning, meeting kindred spirits as he explores the rivers and lakes, Daire finds himself rediscovering the majestic beauty of his native country. From fishing on our most secluded bays and wildest loughs in Connemara and Kerry, to casting a line on the rippling waters of the Suir in Tipperary, catching salmon on the Blackwater in Waterford, and the serenity of the Dodder in Dublin on a workday afternoon, Haunted by Waters is an evocative and stunning love letter to Ireland through a sport rich in tradition and storytelling. "

I am forbidden by my wife to buy books for myself at this time of year in case I ruin a potential present, so am looking forward to reading this in the new year!
