Mr. E.G. Appleby RIP
22/1/18 I’m starting today’s No Spin No Fly’s Just Facts zone on a personal note,  today is the 5th anniversary of my Father’s parting and all I can say is Dad RIP you may be gone but your certainly not forgotten. There is many fantastic memories, but one comes to mind and one I will never forget and that was the day we caught two Salmon on the troll, both at the same time  and fair play to my Father he played both Salmon and to top it all we caught both in a mighty thunder storm with fork lighting and Thank God the fish were the only ones to be electrocuted. Now back to the present, Lough Currane was all quiet on the SW front with a fresh wind from the SW and overcast with light rain at times and staying with the weather, has issued yellow warning and here are the facts from Southwest winds are expected to reach mean speeds of between 55 and 65 km/hr, gusting to 110 km/hr at times on Tuesday night. Issued: Monday 22 January 2018 11:00

20/1/18 Into the forth day and my Noble Anglers blood pressure is rising ? with anticipation for who is going to take the Lough Currane Green Jacket for the first Salmon caught this 2018 Season. To all you Salmon and Sea Trout Magazine readers, in February’s issue, there is a 3 page great article on Lough Derriana by Mr. Chris McCully and well worth reading as I’m sure you will agree! Wind WNW fresh and overcast. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 10.6 mm. Maximum air temperature 7.8c.

17/1/18 The Waterville Salmon Stations opened this day with four boats manipulating the shorelines and the great Salmon lines of Lough Currane, but alas my Noble anglers didn’t contact a Wild Atlantic Salmon this opening day, the only bit of action was in the Kelt department. Wind NW fresh with  heavy showers and overcast all day. On a personal note I would like to wish all Game anglers a great 2018 Salmon and Sea Trout Season and as Dave Alen would not say, may all your fish be with you.
