21/1/17 There were a few boats out manipulating, but sadly when their reels sang out, their smile was soon wiped out as they netted their Kelt and here are the reported catches. We start at the West end of the Lake, Kildare and Waterville Angler Mr. Noel Clancy, caught 1 Kelt while trolling. Now we head down the North Shore to Local Gillie Mr. Eric Jouen and at who caught 2 kelts on the troll. Wind ESE light with reasonable cloud cover, air temperature 7c felt like 5c

20/1/17 Lough Currane Secret Service reports that there were two boats manipulating and the anglers in question were local Gillie Mr. Bob Priestley and Kildare and Waterville Angler Mr. Noel Clancy. Noel reported that he caught 3 Kelts on the Troll and were all returned safely, so I’m sure they will make their way down stream to the Wild Atlantic Way. Wind ESE light with bright sunshine this morning and with reasonable cloud cover this afternoon, air temperature 11c but felt like 8c.

19/1/17 Lough Currane’s fishing menu for the day, bright sunshine, a light ESE wind, plus the odd sound of a trolling reel going off, then a hush of disappointment as the angler or anglers realised it was a Kelt. Air temperature 8c felt like 7c

Wind SSE light and overcast, air temperature 10c felt like 8c

A picture always tells a story
17/1/17 Its great to be back in the No Spin No Fly’s just Facts zone and tight lines to all you anglers this 2017 season. Lough Currane had a calm of sadness this opening day and for good reason. It’s with great sadness that I have to inform you with the passing of Mrs Kathleen O’Shea RIP, Wife of Gillie Mr. Donal O’Shea and Mother of Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea, Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea, Daughters Ann and Kathleen, Daughter-in-law Patsy, Son-in-law’s Eamon and Michael and all the Grandchildren. So on behalf of all the Anglers and all Donal’s, Neil’s and Tom’s clients, and all the good people of Kerry we send our sincere sympathies to all the O’Shea Family and friends. Staying with the Lough Currane calm of sadness in the past few weeks UK angler Mr. Jonathan Fish RIP, Dublin Angler Mr PJ Lynham RIP, have sadly past away and again our sincere sympathies to both their families and friends. So on that sad start to the season we head out on to Lough Currane for today’s action or I should say the lack of it and for good reason, my Noble Anglers failed Miserably in their duties in both the fly and trolling departments, but to be fair to the fly anglers there was little to no wind as you can see by this photo. Just for the record there were a good few Kelts caught on the troll which is a good sign. Wind SSE light to calm with good cloud cover, air temperature 8c but felt like 7c.  Just for the record there were about 9 boats out manipulating.

12/10/16 On this Last day of the 2016 rising of the wild Game fish of Lough Currane , ie My Nobel Sea Trout, there was only one angler who let his fingers do the talking this day, that was Cork Angler, Mr. Paul Lawton, as he tied a good fly to his cast and striked while the iron was hot and released his catch after his photo has been taken, with his fine catch, he comes out with a wise crack, as he sits back admiring his catch. What can you say for the rest of the anglers, well its simple, not a lot as they looked at Pauls catch. Just for the record there are pictures of Paul’s catch as soon as I have them I will put them up on the Blog. Wind SE.

I look forward to reporting all your catches for the 2017 season, so see you on 17/1/17
