ILFA History



The Irish Ladies Flyfishing Association was founded in 1990 by Anne Geary of Pontoon Bridge Hotel, Foxford, Co. Mayo.  Anne took this brave step to support ladies who wished to fly fish and represent their country. 

Her daughter Mary Geary who captained the Irish Ladies International Fly fishing Team for the first four years ably supported her in this, leading the team to internationals in England in 1991, Scotland in 1992, Ireland in 1993 and Wales in 1994.
