Ireland’s fly anglers have been competing at international level for many years. In the last two years, Irish fly anglers affiliated to the Angling Council of Ireland have taken part in a number of prestigious international fly angling events.

On Saturday 28th March, at the Westmanstown Sports Centre in Dublin, angling’s national governing body, the Angling Council of Ireland (ACI) and affiliated federations presented awards to fly anglers who had represented Ireland at international level during the last two years.

The awards were presented in recognition of the outstanding contribution made by each of the anglers to Irish angling as an international competitor.
