I have been staying at Kilmaneen during the last seven years and I have to say that flyfishing is good at the Suir and Tar rivers. The Suir isn´t an easy river, you have to do your best using longs terminals and managing properly the river currents to avoid the drag of the fly. But if you do so you can catch trout between 25 and 35 cms, there is a good stock of them. The Tar is a smaller river and you can see many times the rising of the trout and try to catch them whith the proper fly, I got success whit an 18 olive in quill and natural CDC and a small black body sedge, wings made of natural CDC and a sparsley grey hackle.
And very important, if you are staying at Kilmanneen the fishing in their waters are free.
