20/4/18 Lough Currane was all quiet on the SW front and to be fair to the Currane Anglers Lough Currane is still on the rise and talking of the big flood, Local Gillie Mr. Terence Wharton Jnr. Was telling me while holding the boat for his client in the Mouth of Commeragh yesterday, you could see current going all the way up to the Grey Rock and with 42.2mm of rainfall that’s not surprising. As there was no artistry in the angling department today, we will head for a bit of superb artistry with Vincent Donnelly and his brush and you can decide and just click. Wind West light to fresh and bright sunshine with cloud cover at times. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 14.8c.

18/4/18 Another Wild day on Lough Currane with a strong SE wind blowing with heavy showers, but this didn’t deter Kenmare Angler Mr. Dick Elder, catching a fine 9 lbs. Salmon on the fly and his gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of was telling that it was especially made by Dick. Just for the record because of the wild conditions there were only one or two boats out manipulating. Wind as already stated. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 0.2mm. Maximum air temperature 12.2c.

Tim looks up to the heavens
great catch
Wild Atlantic Salmon 
17/4/18 Another Wild day on Lough Currane with strong SSW blowing, which kept the North Shore Anglers in dry dock, so on that note we head over to the South side and for good reason, Dutch Angler. Mr. Tim Van Der Laan was in flying form, while trolling with his Gillie Mr. Terence Wharton, caught a cracker of a 10 lbs. Salmon and considering the  wild conditions and mighty big flood last night they did well. Wind as already stated with heavy showers. Yesterdays Weather, amount of rainfall 42. 2mm. Maximum air temperature 11.0c.

16/4/18 All Wild Atlantic Salmon stations on Lough Currane were at a standstill as the weather takes hold, anglers could only watch the wild SSW wind blowing across Lough Currane and that sums up today’s manipulations or lack of, I should say. Wind SSW strong with violent gusts plus heavy rain all day. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 7.9 mm. Maximum air temperature 11. 8c.

15/4/18 This weeks angling ends on a stormy note with a strong wind from the SW so as you can imagine the majority of anglers called it a day even though the day hadn’t even started, but as I say that the Lough Currane detective agency did report one boat did head out down the South side but to no avail. Wind SW strong with heavy rain at times. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 7.5mm. Maximum air temperature 13.0c
