Irish Fly Fair 2019 Website Banne


Brian Stephen Finlay - Ireland



My name is Brian Finlay, better known as Finbar. I have been fishing the Foyle System for salmon and seatrout from I was a young lad, almost 40 years and was born only a stone’s throw from the river Mourne in Strabane. The Mourne is well known for its exceptional fly waters and because of this fly fishing and fly tying became my life’s passion.

I am the main fly tyer for the Glenmore rivers fishery on the river Finn in Co Donegal. Over the years I have developed many variations on flies, tying in my own style. My beaded salmon single salmon flies are now producing the majority of catches on the Glenmore waters.

I am also the main tyer for my local angling shop, Guides Choice and I will be tying on their stand at the Irish fly fair in Galway. I look forward to sharing my experience of the river Mourne and in fly tying with the many people from across Ireland, the UK and Europe who attend in Galway

I also look forward to making new acquaintances and catching up with old friends at what must be Europe’s premier fly tying event … See you there
