From the most secluded bays, to the wildest loughs and magical beats, in his new book Haunted by Waters: A Journey into the Irish Countryside, writer and journalist, Daire Whelan takes us through a year of the fly fishing season in Ireland and, as he does so, he travels through the Irish countryside, in celebration of its people and places.

From fishing lessons on the Blackwater, to the hardy madness of the souls who wet their lines in the freezing cold on New Year’s Day, to the mayfly season and the majesty of Lough Corrib, Daire meets fellow fishing enthusiasts and kindred spirits discovering a sense of peace and meaning in the solitude of being on the water.

What is it about casting a fly across flowing waters that can bring such contentment?

Haunted by Waters is not a fishing how-to guide, but is instead a rich portrayal of the rugged beauty of rural Ireland through a sport rich in history, tradition and storytelling.
