Harold O’Toole is a Galway native and started fishing almost before he could walk. He has an intimate knowledge of the western lakes and their beloved trout. He started tying flies with the Galway Fly Tying Guild at the tender age of 6. He is now locally one of the most respected anglers and fly tiers west of the Shannon. Harold specialises in tying real world wet fly and buzzer patterns that work. Testament to this is the success he has had winning just about everything there is to win on the fly competition calendar on Loughs Corrib and Mask.
