Michel !
Waterville Lake today!
21/5/18 There may have been 27.5mm of rainfall yesterday and a ENE wind today but I can say without any fear of contradiction this didn’t deter French angler and no stranger to the Waterville Fishery, Mr. Michel Allonsius, while fly fishing with his gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com caught a fine 9 lbs. Salmon on the fly and finished their day off with a fine 2 ½ lbs. Sea Trout. Wind as already stated and just for the record good there was cloud cover with heavy showers this morning. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall as already stated, maximum air temperature 13.8c.

20/5/18 There was a massive big flood last night and I can tell you the rain hasn’t  stopped all day and still falling as I write today’s news and sadly its the weather that’s making all the headlines, not the fly or the lour. That sums up today’s action and to be fair to the Currane anglers, they are exonerated for their failures this day because the conditions out there were Kat. Wind S moderate and overcast. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall, 0.2mm. Maximum air temperature 14.6c.

19/5/18 In the words of a renowned  Lough Currane Gillie and who will remain nameless and fishless and that sums up today’s action in all departments. Wind SW light to fresh and overcast. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 15.8c.

18/5/18

18/5/18 The Lough Currane anglers fly and trolling reels were as silent as the Lambs this day even though there was a fresh gentle SW breeze to help the Currane fly Anglers cast their flies in anticipation of a rise of a Wild Atlantic Salmon or a wild Lough Currane Sea Trout and I can say without any fear of contradiction my mobile phone was as silent as their reels and that sums up today’s manipulations. Wind as already stated with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 16.2c.

Mike and Terence!
Mike!
15/5/18 A nice bit of history was made today by Mr. Mike Corner Jones of the UK and his Gillie Mr. Terence Wharton Snr, fishing out of  Hogs Head Golf Course, caught a cracker of a 11 lbs. Salmon and by doing so is the first ever client to catch a Salmon on the troll, fishing out of Hogs Head Golf Course. Just for the record this was also Michaels’ first ever Salmon and may it be the first of many for both Michael and Hogs Head Golf Course and to finish the day with a double Grand slam Michael’s good friend Mr. Greg Campbell of the UK caught a fine Brown Trout on the fly while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Terence Wharton Jnr. Now to the weather and in the words of  local Gillie Mr. Terence Wharton Jnr, and I quote it was bitterly cold out there with a ENE wind blowing. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 1.3mm. Maximum air temperature 14.0c.
