Daire Whelan and Tom Doc Sullivan of the Ireland on The Fly podcast talk to Shane O’Reilly and Peter Kealy about the 1902 Cork Salmon Fly Collection…

We wanted to delve a bit deeper into the story to find out how the flies were rediscovered after over a hundred years and what is in the collection exactly and so we spoke to Shane O’Reilly from IFI who was involved in bringing the digital book together as well as Peter Kealey, a fly tier from Armagh, and friend of the late Ted Malone who was central to the Cork collection being recovered.
