29/5/15 There was some great fly fishing on Lough Currane today so lets get to all the facts. We start on the North side and Waterville Boats Harbour and at UK Hampshire Anglers, Mr. Trevor Dewberry, caught a fine 3 lbs. Sea Trout on the Bibio fly while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Michael O’Sullivan at his good friend Mr. Peter Ruttel, fishing with his Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of caught a fine 2 ½ lbs. Sea Trout also on the fly,  staying with the Hampshire Conquerors, Mr. Nigel Henshaw, caught his first ever Salmon and he did it in style while casting his Red Ass Green Peter fly at the point of Fur Island fishing a Intermediate Trout Fly line, Nigel was telling me that it took the best part of 45 minutes to play his Salmon and as it came to the surface his Gillie MD took one swipe and the celebrations began and are drinking the Waterville Bars Dry this evening as I write theses notes. All I can say is may it be the first of many, Cheers! Now to the specimen Sea Trout department, Mr. Justin Clayton-Jones of the UK caught a cracker of a Sea Trout of 9 lbs. on a size 10 Bibio on a floating line with a sinking tip. Justin was fishing with his good friend Mr. Pete Maxi and their Gillie Mr. Sylvester Donnelly of Lake road Waterville. Last but least Dr. Neil Anderson, caught a fine 2 ½ lbs. Sea Trout on the drift. Wind NNW light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover.

Julie with her Catch of the Day
a fine specimen Sea Trout 
25/5/15 Straight to catch of the day and that goes to Mrs. Julie Sanderson and her Husband Neil tells the story. Really like the website: it whetted our appetite in the lead up to our fishing holiday. We had a great morning on Currane today. My wife caught a 6.75lb sea trout on the fly - certainly the best fish I've ever seen. Find attached a photo for your website if you would like it. Her name is Julie Sanderson, thanks. I certainly do like the photo and please repeat as soon possible. I would like to finish their days fishing on this note, congratulations Julie on a great fish and may it be the first of many. Staying in the Sea Trout department, UK angler Mr. Michael Smith, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of caught and released a fine Sea Trout in the 3 lbs. class. renowned Artist Vincent Donnelly of  and this is his story of the one that got away, Its all yours Vincent. I hooked a rock, then it slowly started moving off not skipping across the surface but down deep. I played the rock for over an hour and then my top dropper came slowly to the surface next to the boat, where a salmon came out of no where and grabbed the top dropper and tore off. I was disgusted. I finally landed the salmon hoping and praying the line behind the salmon would still be tight but  it was slack the Big rock was gone and I will keep that memory until I die. I came close to shedding a tear. Wind was all over the place with reasonable cloud cover.    

An Artist pondering his next move will it be the carbon fiber rod
or the Brush?

24/5/15 Sadly the Lough Currane Anglers were not working hard enough in my opinion, be it in the Sea Trout or Salmon department, here are today’s facts and manipulations, first in the C&R striking Zone was UK Angler Mr. Sean Smith, who caught a fine 4 lbs. Sea Trout on the drift, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of also in good form with the fly was UK angler Mr. Marcel Guillou, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of caught and released a fine 5 lbs. Sea Trout. I am sure there were a few more Sea Trout being caught but alas sadly my Noble Anglers weren’t letting their fingers do the talking at the end of their day and if you don’t have a contact number here it is, my mobile number 0872074882 or email Wind NNW fresh with good cloud cover.

Local Gillie Mr. Sion Brain of reported that early this morning that he saw a good few Sea Trout, but alas they wouldn’t rise to his flies and also gave me a diplomatic verbal thrashing for not putting up his C&R 4 lbs Sea Trout on the Blog , I stand corrected and as you can see I have put the record straight. Wind West light with good cloud cover and humid.
