For those of you who may be interested, I have just finished writing an article on the Irish Fly Exhibit from the 1902 Cork Exhibition. Ted malone, Pete Kealey, Frankie McPhillips and myself were afforded a private viewing a few months back and so some nice photos should be included in the article. There will be a few follow-up articles to come in future issues of the same magazine (Irish Angler) reviewing in depth, the flies, the tiers, etc! First up, Michael Rogan of Ballyshannon with some very interesting tid bits about Mr. Rogan that, perhaps, not too many people know about!
The collection is just amazing and should be available for public viewing sometime in 2013, if the display cabinets are finished in time. The real Fiery Brown colour is stunning as are the hackles on the flies.
Hope you all like the article.
Warmest greetings from a wet and windy Ireland (sure what's new)
