26/6/17 Dublin angler Mr. Colin Lynam again takes all the Salmon headlines again today, you could say he’s on a good roll and he certainly is because he caught a fine 8 lbs. Salmon on the troll and in his own words and I quote, caught it this morning and made up for the bad evening and a bad evening it turned out to be, with heavy rain and I mean heavy and has made a good flood. Wind SSE fresh and over cast. Just for the record there were six boats out and you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know today’s scores but just for the record Mr. Colin Lyman’s boat 1 the other 5 boats 0. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 1.4mm. Maximum air temperature 15.2c.

Michael and you can't beet experience 
25/6/17 Again Lough Currane produced some good fishing today, so straight to the action, first in the striking zone was Dublin angler Mr. Colin Lynam who was in great form again with his fly rod and just as good at the trolling and for good reason, Colin caught a fine 5 lbs. Salmon on the fly, then decided to stalk for a Sea Trout and within a few casts caught and released a fine Sea Trout in the 4 lbs. class, but the action didn’t stop there because after a good session with his fly rod his experience told him his luck was in and went for a troll and within minutes his trolling rod was singing the Lough Currane National Anthem with a fine 4 lbs, Salmon for his efforts and in Colin’s own words not a bad couple of days fishing and there is no argument to that. Now we head for the North Shore and Waterville Boats and at  watervilleboats@gmail.com Local Gillie Mr. Michael O’Sullivan was in good form today in the trolling department and for an angler who hasn’t been out very often this season showed the younger gillie’s how its done  and the older ones for that matter, why do I say this, well within half-hour going out he caught a fine 5 lbs. Salmon and when he dispatched his fish, Michael put on barbless hooks to show how its done in the C&R department,
 well it didn’t take long I can tell you because Michael caught two more Salmon Grilse and as he was winding his fish in he pulled the hooks out of the Salmon’s Mouth and the rest is history and in Michael’s own  words easy come easy go and go he did to have his photo taken by the paparazzi. Wind NW light to fresh with good cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 1.6mm. Maximum air temperature 15.2c.

Frank holds fish of the day on the pool and Roger takes the photo!
24/6/17 The Waterville Fishery produced some cracking fishing today so straight to the action, with 10 boats out on the Lake there is only one angler that takes all the Salmon headlines and catch of the day on Lough Currane and that goes to Dublin angler Mr. Colin Lynam and he’s no stranger to the Waterville fishery and you can see why, because Colin, caught 3 Salmon on the troll and their weights are as follows 4 lbs. 5 lbs. 7 lbs. respectively and Colin finished his day off with two C&R fine Sea Trout caught on the fly/drift. Staying in the Sea Trout department, Mr. James Merriot, while fishing with his gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com  caught 1 Junior on the drift. Now we head down stream to the World Famous Butler Pool and catch of the day on the Pool, goes to Mr. Roger Simpson, while manipulating his flies on this famous river it wasn’t long before his fly rod was bent double into a cracker of a 12 lbs. Salmon but the action didn’t stop there because as soon as his Gillie Mr. Frank Donnelly of www.lakelandshouse.com dispatched his fine fish, Roger was on the hunt and his enthusiasm payed off with another fine Salmon in the 7 lbs. class which I might add he sportingly put back. Wind West fresh with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 4.8mm. Maximum air temperature 15.4c.

23/6/17 There was some cracking fishing on Lough Currane today, I will leave the best to last. We start at the Bungalow on the North Shore, UK angler, Graham, caught a fine 2 lbs Sea Trout on the drift, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com In the Bungalow’s hired out boat department of www.oshealoughcurrane.com Mr. Eugene Ferris and party caught two fine Sea Trout ranging from 2 lbs up to 4 lbs all caught on the fly and on the drift. Now for catch of the day, so we head out of the Bungalow and head for the South side and fly department of www.lakelandshouse.com Mr. Rodger Simpson, was in fantastic form with his Gillie Mr. Frank Donnelly of www.lakelandshouse.com  and for good reason, Roger, caught two fine Salmon, both in the 5 lbs. class and finished his day off in the C&R department with 6 Sea Trout ranging from 2 lbs. up to 5 lbs. You can say without any fear of contradiction that Roger’s fly selection was Top Draw and rose a good few more. Wind West light to fresh with good cloud cover.

Tony's 3 1.5 lbs. Sea Trout.
22/6/17 All the Salmon headlines come from the Southside and www.lakelandshouse.com Mr. Rodger Simpson, while fishing with his gillie Mr. Frank Donnelly of www.lakelandshouse.com  caught two fine Grilse on the fly, ranging from 5 lbs. up to 6 lbs. Now we cut across the Lake to the North side and the Bungalow, in the Sea Trout fly department, UK angler, Mr. Mick O’Neill, caught a fine 1 ½ lbs. Sea Trout, caught on the drift, while fishing with his gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com Now to the blooper department and yes you have it, I have done it again, failing to check my email and I can say without any fear of contradiction the angler in question wasn’t amused, so my apologies to Cork angler Mr. Tony Duke for my discrepancies, 3 weeks ago Tony caught a fine 3 ½ lbs. Sea Trout on the fly and as you can see by the photo it’s a cracker of a Sea Trout. I hope this puts the record straight. Wind Light West. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 1.3mm.

On an angling point of view the least said the soonest mended. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 0.7mm. Maximum air temperature 26.0c.
