12/4/12 Update

Now to the poaching department, I was reading  on www.loughcurrane.com  that, The Upper lakes are fishing well for brown trout at the moment with good bags of fine conditioned trout up to and around the 1lb mark.
John Curnow and his nephew Archie had an excellent day on Cloonaghlin Lough with well over twenty fish caught for the day.
We tend to forget that these upper lakes provide some of the best quality brown trout fishing in Kerry to say nothing of the peace and quiet and the magnificent scenery.
