Rory Harkin may have passed on the running of the shop to his daughter Mary but he joins Tom & Daire on this week’s Ireland on the Fly to talk about his love of fly fishing, meeting and fishing with so many household names – including Charles Ritz, Hugh Falkus and Kingsmill Moore – and why the shop was always about more than just selling rods…
