Irish Pike & Pollack

Paul is in Northern Ireland in this episode and meets up with Alan Hanna who is to introduce Paul to the world of fly fishing for Pike. After Alan has shown Paul his set up and the type of flies they'll be using, they head out on Lough Erne in County Fermanagh. Drifting along the bank and stripping back the large lures pays dividends for Paul as he lands a sprightly Pike on the fly. The action is short lived though so they decide to try a different lake the following day and try a small lake that Allan knows on the Blessingbourne Estate. Having found an area here Pike are holding, Alan shows exactly how its done, landing several Pike in quick succession. In the second part of the show, Alan has Paul scaling down a rock face on St Johns Point in County Donegal, in order to access a cracking sea fishing mark where they hope to tempt some Pollak on the fly. Again Alan talks through the set up and flies before they both start casting into the choppy water. Alan gets into a fish and not long after Paul breaks his duck and lands a Pollack too. The day isn't done yet though as Alan lands a couple of bigger Pollack that put up a strong fight.
