25/7/14

25/7/14 Anglers saw another hot day on the Lake and very little action even though local Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com  did report that his client, Mr. Mark O’Malley of the UK, caught 1 Junior on the drift. And for the rest of the angling community they failed miserably in their duties and with very little wind this is understandable, and what wind was there was West light.

24/7/14 Again Lough Currane was on the quiet side and not surprising with little to no wind and variable and very hot, so its not surprising both fish and anglers alike are keeping a low profile, but at least one angler did get a bit of action in the C&R department and that was Mr. Brian Stark, who caught a nice 1 ½ lbs. Brown Trout on the fly, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com I will finish on a poetic note, on a fishes right to freedom. Here, here, to the water of the brave and the home of  the free, so remember please when you catch me please release me and let me go.

23/7/14 Lough Currane was on the quiet side for the majority of Anglers with only one Gillie and his client reporting their catch, and that was Mr. Mark O’Malley of the UK, who caught 1 Trout on the on fly, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com and for the rest of the fly and trolling anglers they either failed to catch their common dominator, or more likely failed to let their fingers do the talking at the end of the day. Wind, and going by what I here there is plenty of it going around Waterville at the moment but not on the lake today and what wind was there was all over the place, with reasonable cloud cover and very humid.

22/7/14 Straight to the backdate department and in the words of  Northern Ireland angler, Mr. Andy Wishart, my nephew Gavin caught a 5 pound grilse yesterday and I caught a 4 pound grilse today. Both on the troll, Gavin also caught a 2 pound sea trout today, and all I say to that is voi·là, and just for the record Andy was fishing in a hired out boat from Waterville Boats and at watervilleboats@gmail.com  Now we head for the Bungalow, Mr. Mike Power caught and released a 1 ½ lbs. Sea Trout on the drift, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com Wind S moderate

21/7/14 Wind was SE with misty rain on and off all day and there was only 1 good Sea Trout recorded on the drift, that Accolade goes to Mrs Ann Curran of Dublin, who caught a fine 3 ½ lbs Sea Trout on the fly, while fishing with her Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com For the rest of the angling community, there was very little action in the wild Game fish department, going by my mobile phone.

20/7/14 I Start today’s notes on congratulating Irish Golf Star, Mr. Rory Mcilroy, for wining the British Open Golf Championship and may it be the first of many. Sadly there were no Gold medals won today on Irelands Premier Salmon and Sea Trout Lake, but here are some of their scores cards. In the www.lakelandshouse.com hired out boat fly department, Mr. Martin Burns and his Son Rob, caught a fine 2 ½ lbs. Sea Trout and caught a few Juniors which were sportingly returned, Now we cut across the Lake to the North side and the Bungalow, Mr. Neil Glivan, caught 1 Sea Trout to his rod, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com Wind NW with some cloud cover and very warm.

19/7/14 My Noble Anglers were as lethargic as their Noble game fish and with no wind to manipulate their flies and bright sunshine, what do you expect, miracles? well if they did I am afraid they didn't pray hard enough so here endeth the lesson.
