31/8/15

courtesy of  Rok Equestrian  
31/8/15 Straight to the Bungalow and the C&R Sea Trout fly department, Mr. Arnold Slater, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com caught 5 Sea Trout , ranging from Junior class up to 4 lbs. Now we cut right across the Lake to Coffee’s Bay, Local Angler Mr. Liam Ellis caught and released a fine Sea Trout on the drift, in the 3 lbs. class. Now to the department that you all like and yes you have it, I have been criticised for my bad quotations by  Ring of Kerry Rok Equestrian Centre and for good reason, I was politely told that when I say the Lake was like a Milk pond this is incorrect and the proper saying is, the lake was like a Mill Pond and I stand corrected. I will finish today’s notes by saying Tally HO  Wind calm this morning and fresh Northerly in the afternoon with reasonable cloud cover with the odd light shower.

30/8/15 Lough Currane was all quiet on the SW front in all departments and to be fair to my Noble Anglers there wasn’t  much wind and what wind was there was light and variable with plenty of sunshine. So we head for the backdate department and I was sent a picture of a fine catch of a Salmon and Sea Trout caught on Lough Currane in the past week.

Matt
A fine Sea Trout caught on the fly
29/8/15 We start on the upper Lakes and Lough Derriana and the C&R fly department,  in the last few days Mr. Toby Gibbins and party from Co Mayo have had fantastic fishing with 80 Juniors caught and a few nice Sea Trout in the 2 lbs class and not satisfied with that they came down to the Big Lake/Lough Currane and showed the rest of the angling community how it should be done in style, yes you have it, today they were fishing in the hired out boat department of www.oshealoughcurrane.com Mr. Matt Whitelaw of West port Co Mayo, caught a cracker of a specimen 6.56 lbs. Sea Trout out at the Sisters on a size 8 Alexandra fly, on a floating line and just for the record Matt would have released this fine fish but again sadly this fish was damaged in the gills. Staying with the Co Mayo anglers in the last few days they have had some good baskets of Sea Trout taken from Lough Currane from Junior class up to 2 lbs. For the rest of the Lough Currane anglers there wasn’t a murmur from their reels or their mobiles today but at least the paparazzi was in full swing on his Silver wing Honda. Wind SW light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover at times

28/8/15 The 2015 ‘Currane Championship’

28/8/15 Lough Currane was on the quiet side in all departments so we will go back to yesterdays fine catch and for good reason, Rory didn’t catch his Salmon on Lough Currane in actual fact he caught it on Copal Lake and in my opinion this makes Rory’s catch even better, because there isn’t many anglers if any that have caught their first ever Salmon on the fly on Copal and especially at the grand old age of 15. Wind W fresh with reasonable cloud cover. Message from www.loughcurrane.com

Rory
Rory and his Grandfather Mr. Kevin McGillicuddy
27/8/15 Lough Currane has a new King of the fly in the making, 15 year old Rory Burke of the UK and the Grandson of  renowned UK and Waterville Angler Mr. Kevin McGillicuddy, caught his first ever 4 lbs. Salmon on the fly and his Gillie MD was telling me that this was his first time ever fly fishing and young Rory finished his day off with a fine 1 lbs. Sea Trout. There was no comment from the rest of the Lough Currane anglers and for good reason, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to work out why, yes you have it they failed again. Wind SW fresh to strong with showers.

26/8/15 Lough Currane was on the quiet side in all departments going by the iphone, even there were a few Juniors caught on the fly, but you can say with out any fear of contradiction in the overall angling community they failed miserably in their duties, in their manipulation of their flies selection and presentation and their choice of drift and last but not least they failed to let their fingers do the talking at the end of their day and all I can say is, iphone or not I have spoken and just for the record I failed miserably my self, so who the hell am I to criticize. Wind WNW and veered WSW and overcast with showers.

Ramon
25/8/15 Straight to the hired out boat department of Waterville Boats and at watervilleboats@gmail.com Mr. Ramon O’Reilly, was in great form with his fly rod today while drifting on Lough Currane, a cracker of a Sea Trout rose to his fly and as Ramon struck his fine fish, experience told him the chances were that he was into a specimen Sea Trout and the battle was on, after a fine fight his Sea Trout was ready for the net and with one swipe the fish was dispatched. Just for the record Ramon had every intention of returning this fine specimen Sea Trout of 6 lbs.7 ozs but sadly the gills were damaged. Now we cut across to the south side of the Lake, Local Gillie Mr. John Murphy, caught 2 juniors and finished his day off with a fine Sea Trout of 3 ½ lbs. all caught on the fly. Wind SE then veered SW fresh to strong with rain this morning and made a small flood.

Class, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com and for the rest of the angling community they failed miserably in their duties and that includes my good self and I certainly didn’t have to let my fingers do the talking at the end of the day. Wind as already stated and overcast all day with light drizzle late this afternoon.
