22/5/17 All the headlines go to renowned fly angler Mr. Michael Smith of the UK, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Nile O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com caught and released a fine 4lbs. Sea Trout on the drift and for the rest of the angling community their mobiles were as silent as the Lambs and their heads were bowed down as they headed for the Bar for their nightly inquest on their efforts this day and they could only come to one conclusion, that again we have failed miserably in all departments and I concur. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 2.7mm. Maximum air temperature 15.2c.

21/5/17 Lough Currane was on the wild side today, with a strong SW wind this morning then veered SE in the afternoon fresh to strong and with good cloud cover. Four boats did venture out onto the wild waters of Lough Currane today, but to no avail, or put it in simple English they failed miserably in their duties in all departments, so on that note we head into yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 2.5mm. Maximum air temperature 13.6c.

19/5/17 What can one say about the Lough Currane anglers this day, well its simple they all failed miserably in their duties in all departments and as one gillie said this evening, what do you expect from we fly anglers, miracles! I replied no Salmon actually! mind you, a wing and a prayer is no harm, so make sure your flie has a good wing and as you look to the heavens your prayers might be answered, but a word of warning be careful as you look up to the heavens you could miss a rise of a life time. Just for the record there were about 5 boats manipulating. Wind NW light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover plus a few showers, yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 4.6mm, maximum air temperature 13.0c.

18/5/17 I start with the sad news that the Waterville fishery has lost another great angler, Mr. Malcolm Hutton RIP of The UK and Waterville, sadly past away today while doing what he loved, fishing with his rod in hand at the ready, well Malcolm you be gone but you will never be forgotten and on behalf of all the Waterville anglers and the good people of Kerry we send our deepest sympathies to all his Family and Friends. Now today’s fishing notes and there is only one angler that takes the headlines and that is UK fly angler extraordinaire Mr. Sean Smith, who manipulated his flies with pure professionalism and why do I say this because he caught a fine 8 ½ lbs. Salmon, while fishing with is Gillie Mr Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com and Neil’s quote of the day was nothing like eating humble pie, all I can say it’s a pleasure to eat it! Wind NW light to fresh and variable at times, with reasonable cloud cover at times. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 1.7mm, Maximum air temperature 14.6c.

17/5/17 Lough Currane was all quiet on the SW front, which I find surprising after the flood, admittedly the land took most of it but at least the lake went up a few inches  and still my Noble Anglers can’t seem to take advantage of this small flood and one can only come to the conclusion the professionals are losing their art of flie and lure selection? And just for the record I would be delighted to eat humble pie! On that sarcastic note we head for the weather, Wind WNW light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover at times. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 4.1mm.Maximum air temperature 14.4c.
