All quiet on the SW front, and I can tell you just for the record Lough Currane is on the low side, and my Noble Salmon requires liquid refreshment badly and sooner the better, and for your long range forecast go to www.met.ie Wind North light.

All quiet on the SW front in all departments wind NW light. Now for some sad News, Swiss  Angler Mr. Walter Ruche, has sadly past away After long Illness, and his Gillie Mr. Frank Donnelly and his good wife Ann were telling me  that he first came to Waterville in 1980 and had two trips year one in April and one in September and if you read my notes in the past I used say when Walter caught a fish the Swiss flag is flying high over Lough Currane but sadly it is at half Mast Over Lough Currane today and our thoughts and prayers go out to his Family and friends.

Lough Currane may of been on the cold side with a NNE light breeze going across the Lake, plus a small amount of snow on the hill, but this didn’t deter Mr. Peter Keenan, catching a fine 6lbs Salmon on the troll with his Gillie Mr. Bob Priestley. Now we head down stream and out to sea to the Bass department, and as you can see Mr. Kevin Braine of www.kbfishingireland.com  caught a fine Bass last night and the picture was taken by Mr. Ivor O’Connor of www.ivorsfood.com

Mr. Hughie Reid 
All the Head lines go to Mr. Hughie Reid, who caught a fine 9 ¼ lbs Salmon on the troll fishing out www.oshealoughcurrane.com and Hughie was telling me that it was his first ever Salmon, and may it be the first of many, and for the rest of we so called anglers, lessons can be learnt i.e. if your not out there you can’t  catch my Noble Salmon. Wind NW light to fresh with the odd shower.

There was a strong SE wind blowing across the Lake and ideal for the fly, but my Noble Salmon thought otherwise, or you could say that my Noble Fly Anglers failed miserably in their duties in procuring my Noble Salmon, and those Anglers that were manipulating there lures didn’t fair much better. Wind as already stated and overcast.

Lough Curran was on the flat calm side all day, and there was no reports of any great excitement, but to be fair the elements were against my noble fly fisher. Now we head out to Sea, and to all you Bass anglers who like off shore accounts, Mr Kevin Braine of www.kbfishingireland.com  Was telling me that he has had some good Bass fishing in the past week.
