14/6/13 Sea Trout update


2 Sea Trout  caught by Mr. Phil Staneforth, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Dominic  McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com


Lough Currane was on the quiet side after the big flood, and all the action was on the Commeragh River, you could say it was the Salmon Munster Final, Kerry V Cork, the only problem is I can’t give you the results because my noble anglers didn't report their catches. So we will head upstream to Lough Derriana and the C&R department, Mr. Denis Dennehy, caught 12 light Trout and the weather was heavy going. Wind SW fresh and veered NW this evening.
