    Default Setanta Sport - On the Fly - Fishing programme

    Had the pleasure of being involved in the filming of this TV series earlier in the year. It starts tonight on Setanta Ireland. Looking forward to it

    Press Release:
    On the Fly
    ….flyfishing in Ireland


    Starts Tuesday 7th December 10pm on Setanta Ireland
    6 x 25’


    The lakes and rivers of Ireland are prime fly fishing regions. And this fly fishing series makes for prime time viewing. Stunning landscapes and classic characters come together in a fascinating look into one of Ireland’s most popular pastimes.

    Ireland’s leading chefs are taking to the rivers and lakes of Ireland to learn how to fly fish. If they succeed in making a catch, they’ll serve it up in their own style.

    Each episode features a different chef exploring the art of fly fishing, as well as a different part of Ireland.

    10pm, Tuesday 7th December
    The month of May kicks off the flyfishing season as people flock to the west of Ireland. Kevin Thornton (Thorntons, Dublin) spends time on Lough Corrib during the mayfly season to catch a trout. The month of May is not kind to Kevin. His first trip of blazing sunshine makes for a pleasant boat trip but poor fishing prospects, and his second trip brews up a storm.


    10pm, Tuesday 14th December
    Anita Thoma (Il Primo, Dublin) goes west to Ballina, Co. Mayo for the salmon festival and the challenge of catching the king of fish. Anita tries a number of junctures of the river Moy as the festival celebrates this majestic fishing area.


    10pm, Tuesday 21st December
    Kevin Dundon (Dunbrody House, Waterford) who left his native Dublin to set up a country manor in Waterford comes back to Dublin to fish. He goes out on the Dodder river to catch trout, as well as fly fishing along the Dublin coastline.


    10pm, Tuesday 28th December
    Derry Clarke (L’Ecrivain) heads to Waterville, Co. Kerry to try his hand at fly fishing for sea bass. A popular fish in trendy Dublin restaurants it’s a challenge to catch on the fly. Recent restrictions on catching seabass have helped increase stocks of sea bass of the Irish coast.


    10pm, Tuesday 4th January
    Neven Maguire (Macnean House, Cavan) travels from the north west to the midlands in search of pike. A popular fish in other parts of Europe, Irish people are not comfortable eating pike. Neven learns the craft of flyfishing on Lake Derravaragh, Co. Westmeath. One of the most well known of Irish chefs, the crowds gather to taste Neven’s pike dish.


    10pm, Tuesday 11th January
    Our final programme features Martijn Kajuiter fishing for salmon. The Dutch chef runs the Cliff House in Ardmore, Co. Waterford. He’s passionate about using local produce in his cooking and relishes the idea of learning to flyfish in his adopted county.


    Produced by Loosehorse (www.loosehorse.ie), the executive producer is Trisha Canning. Directors include Peter Murphy, Sarah Barrow and Joe Farrell.
