FRANK LEWIS AND MARK GRACE, BALLYARTELLA

Description

I called to the house of Mark Grace, where I met the man himself and his wife, who introduced me to Frank Lewis. The interview focused on the many aspects of fishing on the lake and Mark took me to the place where he keeps all his fishing gear. There he described the different fishing flies, the box in which the mayfly would be kept and a special board used for poaching. As we were approaching the dapping season, it was fascinating to listen to the stories associated with that season each year. The interview finished with a description of the time spent on the lake and the food they would cook and eat. This certainly whetted my appetite for the collection of more stories associated with the sport of fishing.
