Now back to today’s action. Mr. Antony Avogadri caught a fine Grilse on the troll, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com and for the rest of my Noble Anglers they either failed to catch my Honorable Game fish or they definitely failed to report their catches. Wind W light to calm and sunny.

28/6/14 Bright sunshine and flat calm conditions were the order of the day as my Noble fly Anglers waited for wind, as the iron men trolled by, grinning as they went past the redundant fly anglers, but in the end it was my Noble Game fish that had the last laugh on the day shift.

27/6/14 Mr. Martin Burn of Dublin, caught his first 1½ lbs. Sea Trout on the fly today, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Frank Donnelly of www.lakelandshouse.com and may it be the first of many. Staying with the Sea Trout, Mr. Phil Staniforth of the UK, fishing with his Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com caught 3 lbs Sea trout on the fly, which he sportingly put back to fight another day. On the weather front, flat calm for the most of the day with heavy showers.              

26/6/14 Internet down last night sorry for this

26/6/14 Its Mr. Phil Staniforth of the UK and Waterville and his Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com  that take all the headlines in the fly department, with 7 Grilse and four were returned and not satisfied with that, they topped that with 9 Sea Trout, which were also returned. On a personal note I would like to apologise to the both of them for not taking their photo but I was literally locked in with the trees being cut all around me at home, as you can see by the pictures, but with any luck I might have their picture sent to me. Dominic reported that the wind was in the East, and as luck would have it they were the only ones to record a feast.

I'm sure you're a nice guy but I really wish you would drop the 'noble gentleman noble salmon ' talk as it makes you sound like a moron. My apologies but it's true .

18/6/14 Another hot day in Waterville, most anglers were just hoping for a strike and instead got sunburnt, but at least one angler, Mr. Keith Nicklen, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com caught the sun and finished his day off with a Sea Trout, just like that. Wind W light.

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

Well my Noble anglers had a good excuse for not procuring my noble Game fish today and for good reason, with blazing sunshine a very light wind from the W. In the words of Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com  very hot out there and  23c in the shade, this will kill us!!

16/6/14 Again my Noble Anglers had blazing sunshine and flat calm conditions this morning but this didn’t deter a few boats from venturing out and one or two Anglers are glad they did. Come lunch time there was a light SW wind, that is when there was a bit of action, first in the striking zone was Irish American, Mr. Peter McGrath of Milwaukee USA while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Michael O’Sullivan of Waterville Boats and at watervilleboats@gmail.com caught a fine 8 lbs Salmon on the troll and finished their day off with a nice Sea Trout of 2 ½ lbs caught on the fly.

Now we cut across the lake to the south side and the hired out boat department of www.lakelandshouse.com Mr. Michael Heery, while fly fishing, caught 6 Sea Trout up to 3 ¾ lbs.                                                  

15/6/14 Lough Currane was on the Blazing Saddles side, but at least one angler came up trumps in the C&R sea Trout department and that was Mr. Enrico Fantasia of Dublin, who caught a fine 2 lbs Sea Trout on the drift, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Ton O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com Wind was all over the place and light.

14/6/14 Mr. Keith Nickland fishing out of the Butler Arms Hotel and at www.butlerarms.com with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea and at www.oshealoughcurrane.com caught a fine 4 ½ lbs. Grilse on the troll, also in good form fishing out of the Bungalow, was Mr. Sean Brick of Tralee, who caught a fine 4 lbs Sea Trout on the drift. Staying at the Bungalow, Mr. Angus Sutherland, caught a fine 2 ½ lbs. Sea trout on the drift, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com  There were a few boats out there manipulating their flies and I am sure they all didn’t draw a blank and if they did, they failed miserably in their duties in procuring the odd Salmon or Sea Trout and if you did you certainly failed in the reporting department. Wind WNW light to fresh with bright sunshine all day.

Mr. JoJo Daly

JoJo
Frank and JoJo
12/6/14 Lough Currane went up and down with an almighty explosion in the trolling department today, and for good reason, Mr. JoJo Daly of Abbeydorney, Tralee, caught a cracker of a Salmon in the 22 lbs. class. His gillie Mr. Frank Donnelly of www.lakelandshouse.com was telling me that he took like a Grilse, but once my Noble Gentlemen, saw the boat there was one hell of an explosion and the battle was on, at one point they had to chase the fish because of the fear of running out of line, all I can say is, it wasn’t long before my Noble Salmon was running out of strength and that includes my Noble Captor. Now to Franks Hired out Boat department
Tony




JoJo's hosts Frank and Ann
, Fran, caught 2 Sea Trout on the drift, ranging from 1 ½ lbs up to 2 lbs and yesterday 11/6/14 he caught and released a Sea Trout in the 5 lbs Class.

8/6/14

David and Martin
caught on the 7/6/14
8/6/14 Lough Currane was on the mad side in the opinion of local Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com and for good reason, there was a strong SW wind blowing down the lake, this didn’t deter his clients, Mr. Peter Liddel and Mr. Alex Muir, from catching 3 fine Sea Trout on the drift, up to 4 ½ lbs. Now we head for the www.lakelandshouse.com  Boat hire department, Mr. Alan Richmond caught 1 Brown Trout of 2 lbs and also caught 2 fine Sea trout up to 2 ½ lbs. and yesterday 7/6/14 caught a Sea Trout of 1 ½ lbs all caught on the fly.

7/6/14

Fionan takes the limelight 
7/6/14 Lough Currane is on the rise after yesterdays flood. The amount of rainfall was 18.2 mm, and as you well know a rising lake doesn’t make for good fishing but at the same time it doesn’t mean that you can’t catch my Noble gentlemen so lets get today’s facts, in www.lakelandshouse.com hired out boat fly department, Mr. Philip Jarvais, caught a fine 2 lbs Sea Trout on the drift. Now we head upstream to the Commeragh River and all the head lines go to Master Fionan Brain, who caught a cracker of a Salmon in the 10 lbs class on the Black birds fancy while fishing with his Dad, Mr. Sion Brain of www.kbfishingireland.com Wind SW fresh with reasonable cloud cover.        

Saturday, June 7, 2014

6/6/14

6/6/14 There was a raging flood coming down the Commeragh river this morning and as you can imagine the Lake was dirty and with a strong SE wind blowing across the Lake, which didn't make for good fishing, come lunch time most anglers headed for the high stool.

Thursday, June 5, 2014

5/6/14

Gavin
5/6/14 All the headlines go to Mr. Gavin Wishart and his Uncle, Mr. Andy Wishart of Northern Ireland and for good reason they left their home in the North this morning, and headed straight to Lough Currane and Waterville Boats and at watervilleboats@gmail.com  they got out fishing by 4.45 pm and caught their 13 ½ lbs. Salmon on the troll, within 30 minutes of putting their rods out, and as Frank Carson would say “that’s a cracker” Wind SE fresh with reasonable cloud cover.

Wednesday, June 4, 2014

4/6/14

4/6/14 UK angler Mr. Terence Henson takes the honours in the Sea Trout department, with a fine Sea trout in the 3 lbs. class, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com there were a few boats manipulating but sadly they got their calculations in a tangle and that’s the reason they failed with their manipulations, but to be fair to my Noble Sea Trout Anglers, it was very squally and cold on the Lake, wind NNW.

Tuesday, June 3, 2014

3/6/14

3/6/14 All the headlines go to the hired out boat department of Waterville Boats and at watervilleboats@gmail.com UK fly anglers, John and Simon White from Bristol, they caught a fine Grilse in the 4 lbs. class and also lost another fine Salmon on the drift, they finished their day off with a Sea Trout in the 2 ½ lbs. class, which they sportingly put back to fight another day. Where the rest of my Noble Anglers are concerned they failed miserably in their duties in Procuring my honorable Game Fish and if they did procure a few rod benders, they have failed to report their catches, so remember your catches will catch my Noble Anglers. The wind was in the west, but the fish wouldn’t invest, even though the anglers tried their best??    

2/5/14

2/6/14 sorry for the delay out of the County for the day and just got back. Here are today’s facts, US Angler Mr. Curtis Welled, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Frank Donnelly of www.lakelandshouse.com caught a fine 3 lbs Sea Trout on the fly, and staying in the Sea Trout department Mr. Paul Lawton caught a fine Sea Trout on the drift, and for the rest of Game Fishing Community no comment. Now to the Magazine department, I see in the Trout and Salmon, that Mr. John Allen of the UK got his photo in, of his fine 9 lbs Sea Trout, so congratulations for that. Wind was like me all over the place today, first it was NW then veered W then veered all way into the east and overcast.

Sunday, June 1, 2014

1/6/14

Keep casting
1/6/14  This Bank holiday Sunday was a miserable day in all departments be it fly or troll and there were no reports of any real rod benders and if there were which I am Sure there were? My Honourable Anglers failed miserably in their duties to report there catches, now to the upper lakes and the backdate department, yesterday 31/5/14 Mr. John Walsh, fishing on Lough Derriana, caught a fine Grilse on the drift and staying on Lough Derriana today, Mr. Noel Clancy of Waterville reported to me that he caught a few Brown trout and caught a 8 lbs Kelt. On that note, I will head for the reminiscing department and the Best View In Ireland, I remember by Father and Uncle after a good days Sea fishing out from Bunnavalla, would head for the Famous Scarriff Inn Bar for a Large Whisky and I can remember My Uncle Ernest saying after a few whisky’s, this is the best view in Ireland. Wind SW light to fresh and overcast with misty rain this morning and heavy at times                                          

Cheers the best view
