Inland Fisheries Ireland will bring some of the creatures which live in our waterways so they can be seen up close. Insects – called “macroinvertebrates” which live on the stones and riverbed are the valuable food source for fish. These insects are also what anglers try to copy to tie flies for certain types of fishing. We will also have some fish which you would expect to find in our freshwater aquarium. Seeing these fish up close with their wonderful patterns is a real treat to anyone who wonders about nature under the water. For the budding angler we will have our angling simulator which lets you experience the thrill of catching a fish and not knowing what size it is until it is finally reeled in! Our fisheries staff will be happy to answer any questions or queries which you have.
