28/8/16 There were no records broken on Lough Currane Salmon and Sea Trout department, or in the  and you can say without any fear of contradiction they have made themselves look like right Charlie’s in all departments and its as simple as Black and White and not much could be said for the Green and Gold either, so the least said the soonest mended. Wind W light with bright sunshine all day.

27/8/16 Straight to Sea Trout fly department, Dr. Tim Gleason fishing with his Gillie, caught 3 Trout to his fly rod. Staying on the drift, Mr. Arnold Slater caught 3 Trout to his fly rod, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of and in Neil’s hired out boat department, in the past few days fly anglers from Co Mayo, caught 10 Sea Trout, ranging from Junior class up to 5 lbs. Wind SE fresh with good cloud cover.

26/8/16 All quiet on the SW front as the anglers looked to the heavens praying for a rod bender but their prayers weren’t answered, one can only come to the conclusion either they lack the skill in their choice of fly selection or drift or they weren’t praying hard enough and in my opinion they failed in both departments. Wind SW with reasonable cloud cover at times.

25/8/16  My Noble Anglers went out on Lough Currane this day with anticipation with their fly rods at the ready but by the end of their day they headed for the Bars, all they were looking for was Commiserations for their lack of their ability to produce a wild Atlantic Salmon or a Lough Currane specimen Sea Trout and all I can say is you’d want to pull your act together in all departments. Wind SW fresh with reasonable cloud cover with the odd shower.

Tom strikes again
24/8/16 My Noble Anglers again failed miserably in their duties in all departments, so on that note we head for the upper Lakes and Lough Derriana and I will let Cork angler Mr. Tom Murphy have the last say on yesterday’s fishing and I quote, fished Lough Derriana yesterday with Stephen Galvin. Picked up and released this well reddened cock fish late in the evening. Plenty of resident brownies. Wind West light with plenty of sunshine.

23/8/16 As you all know that Lough Currane is on the rise and as you well know that doesn’t make for good fishing and with another 11.9 mm rain fall yesterday, it will take two or three days to settle down. On the River front again my Noble anglers are either still scared of the that Mighty Bull or their keeping their catches to themselves, on that note we head for the Waterville Inn and I would like to on behalf of all the anglers and good people of Waterville, wish the Landlord Mr. Damian Duff a speedy recovery. Wind next to nothing with bright sunshine all day.

22/8/16 The Lough Currane wild Atlantic Salmon and Sea Trout were in a subdued mood today and that’s not surprising with filthy water coming down the Capal and the Commeragh River, it’s a good job we Lake anglers always have a good excuse! On the River Inny front all quiet on the western front and the only conclusion I can come to is, that Limousine  Bull must have been on duty on both banks of the River Inny, need I say more. Wind W light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover. Amount of rainfall yesterday was 17.7 mm.
