Fly choice a matter of faith, hope and little charity

Irish hurling star Tony Browne is interviewed about the other great sport in his life by the Irish Examiner and it’s interesting to note that famous welcome in the parlour only goes so far:

“Around the Blackwater would be my home turf, though I’m not sure if I’d be sharing the exact spots, we’ve been successful there so we’ll keep it quiet. A certain fly might be taken on a certain night, and you’d have lads shouting over the river, ‘what are they taking?’, and the father would shout back, ‘blackbird’s fancy’ – which means a worm…”

Ah, anglers, anglers…
