Haunted by Waters


From the most secluded bays, to the wildest loughs and magical beats, 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 Irish countryside, in a 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 and discovers a sense of peace and meaning in the solitude of being on the water.

Award-winning producer and journalist Daire Whelan had reached the end of another busy week and couldn’t shake the feeling that life was passing him by too quickly. Vowing to make a change, he decided to commit to a year of fly fishing and set about planning his route through the wild and rugged landscape of Ireland.

Here, in Haunted by Waters: A Journey into the Irish Countryside we travel with Daire throughout a season of fly fishing. But as he searches for a sense of meaning, meeting kindred spirits as he explores the rivers and lakes, Daire finds himself rediscovering the majestic beauty of his native country.

From fishing on our most secluded bays and wildest loughs in Connemara and Kerry, to casting a line on the rippling waters of the Suir in Tipperary, catching salmon on the Blackwater in Waterford, and the serenity of the Dodder in Dublin on a workday afternoon, Haunted by Waters is an evocative and stunning love letter to Ireland through a sport rich in tradition and storytelling.
