Well..... I had expected this post to be huge.  An entire week spent next to one of Ireland's best rivers the Suir, with a free rein to fish where and when we want. But it will not be.

The river was flooded our entire stay, the lining of my stomach was considerably wetter than my lines as the guinness made some compensation for the poor fishing.

A few fish were caught but on heavy nymphs from the margins, not the dry fly we went for. Booked in again for next year.... our luck can't be that bad can it? To add insult to injury the Taff was coming good as I left but has now flooded once mroe on the day I returned. Harbinger of doom I must be.
