31/8/14 Local Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com reported that his clients caught 2 Trout and that it was hard going with a strong SW wind blowing up the lake, so on that note we will head upstream to the world  famous Butler Pool, where there were 2 Salmon taken on the fly. Now for the Sea Trout catch of the day and to get all the facts we head to the upper lakes and Lough Cloonaghlin, where Mr. Sean Brick of Tralee caught 6 Sea trout ranging from Junior class up to 4 ½ lbs. All caught on the fly, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com

 Ms. Yingchun Dong
30/8/14 Straight to the action and a bit of history in the making I believe and for good reason, Ms. Yingchun Dong of Dalian/Dayuqua China, caught a fine 7 lbs. Salmon on the troll and went a step further by showing her fly fishing skills in C&R department and it wasn't long before Yingchun, caught herself a fine 2 ½ lbs Sea Trout and finished her day with 4 Juniors and in the words of her Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com  all I did was net and admired. Now to the total Sea Trout fly department, Mr. Mark Doorman was in excellent form again with 9 Sea Trout, ranging from Junior Class up to 3 lbs. While fishing with his Gillie Mr. Bob Priestley. Mr. Andy Wishart and Mr. Gavin Wishart, caught 2 Trout on the drift, while fishing with their Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com Mayo may have lost the Gaelic football semi final today against the Kingdom of Kerry but at least the Co Mayo Westport Salmon and Sea Trout Blogers were in magnificent form again in the fly department with 10 Sea Trout ranging from Junior Class up to 3 ½ lbs. Wind NW light with reasonable cloud cover.

hi Vincent,
Just a quick note to report some nice evening fishing tonight out from the bungalow with 4 juniors caught by Sarah (8) and Orlaith (6) James from cork. Evening topped off with  a lovely brown of about 2lbs.
We met plenty of fish to the red arse green Peter.
Best regards,
Leonard James


26/8/14 It made a reasonable flood with 17mm of rainfall recorded even though the land took most of it, Lough Currane rose about 5 inches and livened the lake, the fish and anglers alike. Now to the today’s action. In the Salmon and Sea trout department. Mr. Terry O’Keeffe caught a fine 4 lbs. Salmon on the fly and his good friend, Mr. Declan McKibble caught 3 Sea Trout ranging from 2 lbs up to 3 lbs. and their Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com was telling that Declan also lost a fine Salmon and just for the record they only kept a Sea Trout of 2 lbs. and the 4lbs. Salmon. Now to the total Sea Trout department Mr. Jim Sayers of Waterville had a great day and those are his words not mine but I can understand why. Jim caught 3 Sea Trout all in the 3 to 4 lbs class and finished his day off with 5 Juniors. Jims selection of fly was the Black Aunt and the Silver Watson. Wind light to calm WSW and overcast and very humid this afternoon.

25/8/14 We start in the backdate department as promised from Waterville Boats and at watervilleboats@gmail.com 24/8/14 the Lough Leane Anglers headed out in wild conditions on Lough Currane for their annual competition, as the Kingdom of Kerry were battling it out at Croke Park with the Boys of Co Mayo, only to land up heading for Limerick but thankfully the Lough Leane Anglers got their result and they are as follows, (1) Mr. Batty O’Brian (2) Mr. Jerry Buckley (3) Mr. Denis Cronin (4) Mr. Timmy O’Connor and just for the record they also lost some good Sea Trout and Salmon and if you Lough Leane Anglers are not satisfied with my report don’t hesitate to email me to put the record straight. Reason being when the phone went off, the line was cat, you could say if yesterdays game was played on a mobile Kerry would have lost. Now back to today’s results   Lough Currane was wild with a strong SE wind blowing down the lake and heavy rain on and off all day and it has made a reasonable flood. Just for the record very few boats ventured out. On the evening shift Mr. Donagh McCarthy of the USA and Waterville, caught 2 Sea Trout on the fly, while fishing with his gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com
