20/10/17 Storm Brian to hit Kerry early tomorrow morning with gusts up to 130 km plus with 25mm+ of rainfall, just for the record there was 31.4 mm of rainfall yesterday and a grand total on 96.6mm so far this month, so one can say My Noble Salmon and Sea Trout have all water they need as they head for the mighty breeding grounds of the Waterville Fishery

17/10/17 Calm after the Storm and thankfully South Kerry got away with it with little to no damage but as as you can see by the videos it was wild.

12/10/17 Well its that’s time of year again as the Curtin comes down on the 2017 Salmon and Sea Trout season and by all accounts my Noble anglers failed to register a strike on this last day and I can say without any fear of contradiction they failed miserably in their duties in all departments, so on that note, rock on 2018 Salmon and Sea Trout Season and keep the Waterville Fishery and Irish Flag flying high. I would also like to say a big thank you to all the team at the Inland fisheries Ireland and of for all their help this past season as they always do. On a personal note I would like to thank all the readers and anglers for sending photos and your own notes in. Last but not least a Big Thanks to Mr. Paul Burke, who writes for the Trout and Salmon magazine. I will finish by saying I look forward to reporting to you all in 2018 and may your lines be tight.

9/10/17 Waterville Fishery was all quiet on the SW front. So we will head for comment department and a taste of onion, Just to let all my Followers know that Aless has no genetics to Ferox Trout and if She did I can assure you, My Noble Anglers would ignore all sportsmanship and keep their fine catch because she is a cracker, plus she is a Female and she is no Singing Ferox Trout! All I can say Some Trout Some Singer! Wind W fresh with good cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 14.5c and just for the record the total amount of rainfall for September was 204.4mm
