30/7/15 Straight to the Sea Trout Department, Mr. Andrew Brown of Dublin, caught two fine Sea Trout on the drift, ranging from 2 ½ . Lbs. up to 3 ½ lbs. Andrew’s Gillie Mr. Bob Priestley reported to me that he had one backdate to report. Yesterday, his client Mr. Andrew Brown caught a fine 4 ½ lbs. Sea Trout on the drift and was sportingly put back to fight the battle of the Reds this December and here is a perfect example of sportsmanship plus not letting your fingers do the talking after your days fishing. Just for the record Lough Derriana is fishing well in the Junior department.

Just for the record Nick was dabbling the two droppers when his fish took the point fly. Staying with Mr. Nick Scot and party, yesterday they were fishing the upper lakes of Lough Derriana and they caught a good few Brown Trout and finished their day off with a Sea Trout  of 2 ½ lbs. all on the fly.

Better late than never
27/7/15 Breaking News, Vincent Appleby causes controversy over photographs or the lack of them I should say. The reason for this on Saturday 25th there was a fine Salmon caught by Ms Lesley Bishop, while fishing with her Gillie Mr. Vincent O’Sullivan of www.vincentsfishing.com  and Her Gillie wasn’t amused because I didn’t put the picture of all of them up on the Blog, my apology for this but the reason I didn’t was because Lesley wasn’t holding the fish that she caught, so lets put the record straight and seeing is believing, I believe it caused a heated discussion in the back of the Lobster Bar, but this only speculation on my part ? Now for today’s facts. Lough Currane was on the wild side with a strong NW blowing but this didn’t deter a few boats going out and all the head lines go to UK angler Mr. Ken Towner, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Vincent O’Sullivan of www.vincentsfishing.com caught a fine 4 ½ lbs. Grilse and lost one as well and finished their day off with a Sea Trout in the 2 lbs. class. Weather as already stated.

Wind West and overcast and did not feel that warm.

Lesley's first ever Salmon
Lesley on dry land
25/7/15 The conditions first thing this morning were only fit for trolling with bright sunshine and there was not enough wind to blow out a candle, so you don’t have be a rocket scientist that trolling was the only way forward and one Lady Angler took full advantage of theses conditions and that was Ms Lesley Bishop from Shank Hill Dublin and fishing out of www.butlerarms.com caught a fine 7 lbs. 1 ozs Salmon on the troll, while fishing with her Gillie Mr. Vincent O’Sullivan of www.vincentsfishing.com and just for the record that was Lesley’s first salmon and may it be the first of many. Now to the Sea Trout department. Mr. John Magee from Northern Ireland, fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com caught a fine 4 lbs. Sea Trout on the fly and for the rest of the fly fishing community there was little to no action, but to be fair it wasn’t exactly warm out there even though there was good cloud cover all afternoon with light rain around 4pm with a good breeze from the South.

C&R Angler Mr. Steve Cloke.
24/7/15 The Wind was from the NE so very few anglers didn’t catch themselves a feast, but Mr. Steve Cloke would beg to differ and for good reason, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. John Murphy, caught a fine 5 ½ lbs. Sea Trout on the fly, which he sportingly put back, which is great to see. Wind as already stated with reasonable cloud cover with the odd shower. Yesterday evening, local angler Mr. Jim Sayers, caught a fine 2 lbs Sea Trout on the drift.
