Mayo Magic

In this episode of Hooked, Paul Young samples the array of fishing on offer in Ireland's County Mayo. From the sea to the estuaries and pools of the River Moy, this area of Ireland is steeped in fishing heritage. Paul fly fishes the famous Ridge Pool running through the centre of Ballina, overflowing with fresh, silver Atlantic Salmon. Just off the coast of Killala Harbour, ocean species like Ling, Plaice, Turbot and Conger Eels can be found in abundance. Paul then learns the local methods of catching beautiful, fresh sea trout in the Moy estuary. This episode of Hooked represents the rich history and variety of fishing available in Ireland.
