Dublin Angling Expo 2013

Just back from Dublin, where Ken and I (pictured) gave two presentations about the making of Nomads of the Tides and outlined our notions as to where Irish sea-trout originally came from - a story that begins at the end of the last Ice Age, a mere 10-18,000 years ago. During the two days of the show I had the very great pleasure of meeting some of those kind friends and fellow anglers who had helped me so generously during those trips to Ireland I undertook in 2007-12. I must admit that I hardly recognised them: when we originally met we were swathed in wading jackets, hats and body waders against the continual nightly Irish deluges, so it was a bit of a shock to encounter each other in mufti. And yet I suppose we recognised each other by our mutual smiles. All we were missing was James Sadler, who has done such grand work on some of the images and on the design of the Nomads website.

  1. I really wanted to live like you guys do, LOL! Just make sure you have an appropriate nomad travel insurance that can go along your lifestyle. =) keep safe always, guys!

  2. Fishing is a wonderful hobby and there is a wealth of waterways in your local area waiting to be discovered. There are potentially 500,000 people in Ireland who fish or would like an opportunity to fish, so come along and learn everything there is to know about fishing from the experts.
