8/10/15 Just like to say Yesterday I failed to mention the most important two of young James’s Family and that is his two young Daughters, all I can say is sorry for that, but you can say one thing my friends, your Dad James may be gone but not forgotten.

7/10/15 I missed yesterdays notes because of the sad news that Mr. James O’Sullivan of Waterville, past away suddenly. James is the Son of local Gillie Mr  & Mrs. Vincent O’Sullivan and not forgetting his Brother Vincent and Sisters, Sonia, Gemma and Marita and all their family and on behalf of all the good people of Waterville and Caherdaniel and the whole of Co Kerry I send our deepest sympathies to all the O’Sullivan Family. Well James you may have left this beautiful fishery but I will always remember seeing you fish off Darby’s Island trying to catch that Salmon. I will put all the fishing facts in tomorrow notes.

C&R Wild Atlantic Salmon caught by
Paul Hyland
. 2/10/15 Straight to the backdate Salmon department, on the 28/9/15 Northern Ireland angler, Mr. Andy Wishart, caught a fine 7 lbs. Salmon on the troll, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com and staying in the Salmon backdate, again 28/9/15 Mr. Paul Hyland caught and released a fine Grilse on the fly at around 6.30 pm and I am open to correction but I believe that Paul had the honour of catching the last Salmon on Lough Currane in 2015 Now back to the present and today’s live action, even though some anglers thought it was a dead loss, all I can say jealousy will get you no where ! Local Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com reported two Sea Trout to his boat, also in good form fishing out of the Bungalow was Mr. Graham Elwood, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com  caught and released a fine Sea Trout in the 1 ½ lbs. class.

1/10/105 Lough Currane was on the calm side and with bright  sunshine, as the Sea Trout looked  up at my Noble Anglers  with a smile and saying not today Lads. Just for  the record  I have 2 back dates will put them up in tomorrow's notes, the reason for this  I'm  on the road sorry for the delay.

30/9/15 Well as we all know today was the last day of the 2015 Salmon season and you can say without any fear of contradiction that my Noble Salmon Anglers failed miserably in their duties in procuring the Wild Atlantic Salmon and I can tell you my Noble Sea Trout anglers didn’t fair much better but as I say that at least a couple of boats did see a bit of action, Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com reported just one Trout to his boat, staying with the Sea Trout fly department, UK angler Mr. Dave Eccelstone caught a fine 3 lbs Sea trout and his good friend and fellow angler Mr. Ken Towner of Waterville and the UK was telling me that their party also caught a few Juniors. Wind SE light with bright sunshine all day.
