12/10/11 Update

Now for young Angler of the year and that goes to Young Archie Curnow of the UK who took the Crown for the River Inny with 2 fine Salmon both caught all in one day, weighing in at 11lbsa a 8.5lbs



straight to today’s facts, Mr Jim Sayers of Waterville caught 6 Juniors and Mr. John Allen caught 3 Juniors, also in good form was Mr. Rod Robinson with 3 Juniors to his fly rod, a Guest fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea and of www.oshealoughcurrane.com  caught a nice basket of Sea Trout, Mr. Anthony Buckley of Cork fishing with his Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea and @ tomsfishing@eircom.net caught 5 Sea Trout ranging from Juniors up to 2lbs and just for the record other boats did catch the odd Junior. I will finish the 2011 season on a personal note. Well it’s the end of the 2011 Season and what a Season we anglers have had, well, I know one Angler, that a great season that was Mr. Sean Smith of Yorkshire England, who caught the record  Sea Trout 13lbs5ozs on the fly on  Lough Currane fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea, and I might add is the biggest ever Sea Trout caught on a fly in Ireland, so in my book of Honours, Sean is the supreme Sea Trout Angler for 2011 In The Salmon and Gillie department Young Terence Wharton and his Father Mr. Terence Wharton take the honours of the first Salmon caught for 2011 and they crowned that by catching the first Salmon on the fly, the crown for the Biggest Salmon for 2011 goes to Dutch Angler Mr. William Timmermans who caught a fine 15lbs 5ozs Salmon on the troll with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea and of www.oshealoughcurrane.com and for the rest of we Anglers who didn’t make the Honours list I hope you have butter luck in 2012 as always we anglers headed for the  Lobster Bar for the traditional Bacon and cabbage and as always it was first class, so a big thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Denis O’Carroll and their staff for a great evening. On that note I hope you all enjoyed reading the Waterville notes as I did writing them and I look forward to keeping you up to date in 2012  No Spin No fly's just facts.

Mr. John Boyle of Scotland caught a 7.5lbs Salmon on the famous Butler Pool and of www.watervillegolflinks.ie now we head upstream to Lough Currane, Mr. Andrew Wishart of Co Down, fishing out Waterville Boats and @ watervilleboats@gmail.com caught a fine 3lbs Sea trout, staying with the Sea trout just the odd Junior caught, but to be fair to my Noble Fly Anglers, there wasn’t much wind out there and what wind was there was from the NE with reasonable cloud cover. Now to The River Inny just for the record there have been a few Salmon Grilse caught in the last few days, but the Anglers names, are more elusive than my noble gentlemen the Salmon.
