Ireland on the Fly – Julie Gerry, the only woman to win the Lough Mask World Cup, on breaking boundaries and encouraging youths into the sport

5075
This week Daire & Tom are joined by Julie Gerry, former winner of the World Cup on Mask – and the only woman to have won it to date, she’s captain of the Irish Ladies Fly Fishing team, and now also Youth Officer with the Irish Trout Fly Fishers Association.
Julie tells how, despite the success of Irish fly fishing teams, it is still a struggle to get more youths and women into the sport, and how maybe we should be looking to copy the successful programme in Northern Ireland based on the Foyle River Catchment Outdoor Group or FROG CIC as it’s known.
