The River Lee At Cork

Would be as good a place as any in Ireland "to go to fish," were it not

for the "weirs," and foul play in many ways, which is practised all the

way up, on the poor salmon; there is some little sport to be had in it

in the spring, and after heavy rains. The flies to suit it are rather

plain and small, blue, grey, brown, claret, and green; mallard wings,

mixed with a little golden pheasant tail and neck feathers; blue macaw

feelers, black head, and mixed tails like the wings. Hook B CC, in high

water BB and No. 9.
