Fieldsports Britain – Martin McGuinness on fishing in Northern Ireland, episode 137

Northern Ireland deputy first minister Martin McGuinness has been an angler all his life. Right in the middle of the peace negotiations of 1998, he took up flyfishing and, on his second cast, he caught a salmon. As he opens the Irish Game Fair 2012 at Shane’s Castle, Co Antrim, he tells his story. That’s not all. We’re in the Highlands of Scotland fishing for trout with Byron Pace from Sporting Rifle magazine and we have all our usuals – News Stump and Hunting YouTube. You won’t see Fieldsports Britain cancelled because of the weather! #Fieldsports Britain
