23/7/16 My Noble anglers were ready and waiting at the starters gates this morning and I can tell you by the end of their day, their baskets were empty and their selection of flies or lure’s were useless and as they headed for the shoreline and pulled their boats up for the night, they headed for the bars, you can be sure the yearns began of that fish that never was. Here endeth the lesson. Wind light to calm with reasonable cloud cover with the odd light shower.

Chris just before the C&R
22/7/16  Dr. Tim Gleason, had a cracker of a day in both the Fly and Trolling department, Tim caught two fine Grilse, both in the 4 lbs. Class, all while fishing with his gillie. Now to the apology department, again I failed miserable in my duties and on that note I will let the angler in question have the last word on today’s notes. Hi Vincent, Chris McCarthy here. Had this beast last Wednesday July 13th on a Pearly kate mclaren. Reckon he was around 8 lbs. He was safely returned. I'll send on a picture him going back too. My fishing partner Colm Murphy has one around 5lb too. Great day out. Keep up the good reporting work, Chris. Wind WNW light with reasonable cloud cover.                
Chris on the the put back

21/7/16 The Waterville fishery was on the quiet side and where the Noble anglers of Lough Currane are concerned you can say without any fear of contradiction they failed miserably in their duties again today and in my opinion they need a wake up call from the fifth generation Angler. Wind WSW then veered W light to calm and overcast and humid.

Mr. James Henchey
20/7/16 Lough Currane was on the quiet side in all departments, as all my Noble lake anglers failed miserably in their duties and with a light gentle breeze from the SW then veered NW one would have thought there would be some action, so one can only come to one conclusion that their presentation has a lot to be desired, so on that not we head down stream to the world Famous Butler Pool and at and to an angler that when he presents his fly, there is only one outcome and that is UK angler Mr James Henchey, who caught a fine 6lbs. Salmon and Guided by Mr Michael O’Sullivan of Waterville Boats and at

19/7/16 Breaking News

Mr. James Henchey
Breaking News From the World famous Butler Pool and at UK angler Mr. James Henchey,  caught a fine Salmon on the fly in the 5 lbs class.  

19/7/16 Things were real hot out on Lough Currane today, but sadly it wasn’t the fishing but the weather and in the words of Local Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of and I quote, No good just hot. I text, Mr. Tom O’Shea of and all I got was no good, wind all over the place and for the rest of the angling community I’m still waiting for their report the lazy articles.

As calm as it gets
18/7/16 My Noble Anglers were smothering their faces with suntan lotion than changing their flies today and for good reason, there was no wind to talk of and blazing sunshine all day and as you can see by the photo they had little to no chance of enticing a Lough Currane Premier Sea Trout or a Wild Atlantic salmon and if an angler did produce, he or she failed to report their catches and catches will entice anglers to put their skills to the test in these hard conditions.

17/7/16  Waterville and Caherdaniel Postmen, Mr. Joe Murphy, puts the post to one side today, so he can deliver the killer Trout fly and that’s exactly what Joe did and within a few casts, his fly rod was bent double into a fine Sea Trout of 1 ¾ lbs. Not bad for his first day out this Season and staying with the Sea Trout fly department, Northern Ireland Angler Mr. Malcolm Davidson, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of caught one Junior to his rod and sportingly returned his Junior. Wind West light and overcast with light misty rain.
