Only Duck fly on the pool today
18/7/18 Straight to the weather and the order of the day was bright sunshine and very warm and with all that there was at least 3 boats manipulating their lures, all they had to report at the end of their day was a Suntan. On the early shift it was reported that an angler fishing on his own had a good crack from a Salmon while trolling but sadly the salmon won the day and that sums up today’s action. Now to the apology department and yes I failed miserably in my duties, yesterday I failed to check my email because of this I failed to report that Northern Ireland angler Mr. Andy Wishart’s daughter, Kerry caught her first Salmon while trolling with her Dad and may it be the first of many and again sorry for not putting it in yesterdays notes. Wind calm this morning and come afternoon there was a nice breeze from the NW. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 0.3 mm. Maximum air temperature 18.8 c.

15/7/18 Lough Currane Anglers were more enthusiastic this day after a light sprinkle of rainfall, but I can tell you by the end of their day, their enthusiasm had sunk to a low like the waters of Currane, so a full pint of beer was order of the day after their hard efforts, need I say more. Total amount of rainfall for kerry was 3mm, maximum air temperature 18.3.

Currane River!
Ballybunion photo by the Kerryman!
14/7/18 As forecasted we did get a spot of rain in the SW but I have to report one sweated more water than the clouds, on that note we will head out to Lough Currane and I can tell you the action was as slack as the rain again. Now we had for the photo department of North Kerry and a scorched Ballybunion Golf course, photo courtesy of the Kerryman and the low waters at Waterville Bridge. Wind W fresh with good cloud cover and very humid. Yesterdays weather, 18.9 mm. Maximum air temperature 9.9c.

13/7/18 All quiet on the SW front in all departments which is not surprising considering water levels are on a lower scale, so one can understand the lack of action and there is rain on the way tomorrow but sadly it will hardly wet your head and amount forecasted for Waterville is 0.5mm. As you can see by the photo  of The World Famous Butler Pool and  at Wind NW light with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterdays Weather maximum air temperature 21.8c.

12/7/18 Currane Anglers could only look at a flat calm Currane today so one could say the fly anglers were made redundant and even if the wind had got up they would need to ask the patron St. of fishing St. Peter to intervene and the same goes for the anglers that manipulates on the troll, but I will say one thing, dry spell or not Lough Currane has a great reputation for proving otherwise when conditions are hard. Wind no comment. Yesterdays weather maximum air temperature 22.5c.
