18/2/19 Well for starters the Currane anglers did get out manipulating their flies and lures and putting their skill to the test this day, but with all their efforts and my words of wisdom weren’t brought out in practice, but in defence of myself and Currane anglers Lough Currane had a good wind hammering in the past week. All I can say is Thank God we anglers have good genuine excuses. Wind SW fresh good cloud cover with showers. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 6.2 mm. Maximum air temperature 11.1

17/2/19 I’ve been told many times over the years that my notes are full of wind, well this week is no exception and again today the Currane anglers were put into checkmate as a strong and gusty wind hammers the North Shore and all the Currane anglers could do was stand there in frustration and reminisce on days gone past and that sums up this weeks action but sadly only a fraction of fishing was done. Wind strong SW and overcast with heavy showers. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 13.0 mm, Maximum air temperature 11.1 c.

15/2/19 Sadly again the Currane anglers were at a standstill as the weather takes all the headlines as strong winds from the South and SW take control of the Currane anglers and waters this day. On an optimistic note, as from tomorrow, as my Father would say, we are into the deadly week of the Salmon and there is no argument to that because you will see some action in all departments !! Weather permitting, so watch this space. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 12.8 c.

Waterville and Kerry has Time for every one!
14/2/19 The Currane anglers were at a standstill as all Salmon stations were closed, thanks to a strong SSE wind as it took control over the Currane waters. Now we go back in time and here is a message to all you anglers, be it Game or Sea fishing, so if your timing is off, the Waterville Swordfish Sundial will solve your problem especially after a few Jars! Wind as already stated, yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 11.3 c.

13/2/19 You’ve heard of the lonesome Cowboy, well today local Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy and of was complaining he felt like the lonesome Currane Angler fishing out on his own on the Currane prairie in a wild SW wind, as the Currane waves crashed into his bow, Dominic’s reels were silent except for a few interruptions of the odd Kelt taking, or to be more precise 3 strikes! Wind as already stated and overcast. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 5.9. mm. Maximum air temperature 11.8 c.
