20/5/14 There were at least 10 boats out manipulating in all departments and all failed in their duties to procure the wild Atlantic Salmon and Sea Trout,  so on that note I will go to the valid excuse department, very humid and thundery, www.met.ie put out a yellow alert for flash flooding, so far its North Kerry, that’s had the brunt of the flash flood storm, I think one of the reasons we have missed it so far, the wind was coming from the West and has just veered into the NE, so ready and waiting?

19/5/14

19/5/14 After yesterdays fine action on Lough Currane, My Noble Salmon were in a benign mood, in other words, the Lough Currane Anglers failed miserably in all departments, at least the fly anglers had an excuse as you can see by the wind report, what’s that I here you say? I am full of it, well yes I agree, but there is a simple remedy, let the Salmon and Sea Trout do the talking. Wind NE light to calm and overcast with light rain this evening.

16/5/14 A Big Thank you to Kerry Fire Service

16/5/14 My Noble Salmon were well smoked out to day, and for good reason because someone didn’t use their intelligence the good Lord gave them by lighting  a lunchtime fire? Right beside the Edery Bay Forestry and thank God for the Kerry Fire Service who I might add did a first class job in saving this wild beauty spot, and to all you punters out their enjoying yourselves think before you light because you put these firemen’s lives at risk and maybe putting someone else’s life at risk because there is no Fire Crew to come to their rescue. I will let the pictures tell the story. I will finish today’s note by saying no wonder my Noble Salmon stayed deep. Wind SW light to fresh.
