Ireland has some superb dry-fly fishing for trout, and some of the best of it is to be found an hour or so’s drive from Dublin, in the green fields of County Meath. Rivers such as the Boyne, the Deel, the Enfield Blackwaterand the Stoneyford offer fishing that is challenging, rewarding and remarkably cheap. The ideal month is June, but sport can be good all the way through the summer – particularly on fine evenings, where hatches of sedge and Blue Winged Olive are often sensational.
