12/10/17 News Flash update

Mr. Paul Lawton
As promised here are all the facts of Mr. Paul Lawton and his fishing party and photos on yesterdays catches, the last day of the 2016 season in his own words.

Mr. Ray Burns
Sorry for delay Vincent my phone giving me trouble.
There was 3 us fishing the last day, Donal O Doherty had 1 brown trout 2lbs and 10 juniors to 1.1/2lbs
Ray burns had 7 juniors 1lbs to 3lbs
Myself had 8 juniors 1lb to 6lbs. The majority of the juniors were fresh run fish.
We had great day fishing but sad to see only 2 other boats out.
Finally Vincent I would like to thank you on behalf of the anglers who fish the Great Lake Lough Currane,

for your reports during the year they are great help on weather travel or not. Keep up the good                                                                                      work till next year





12/10/16 On this Last day of the 2016 rising of the wild Game fish of Lough Currane , ie My Nobel Sea Trout, there was only one angler who let his fingers do the talking this day, that was Cork Angler, Mr. Paul Lawton, as he tied a good fly to his cast and striked while the iron was hot and released his catch after his photo has been taken, with his fine catch, he comes out with a wise crack, as he sits back admiring his catch. What can you say for the rest of the anglers, well its simple, not a lot as they looked at Pauls catch. Just for the record there are pictures of Paul’s catch as soon as I have them I will put them up on the Blog. Wind SE. On a personal I would like to thank all the Waterville Fishery Anglers from all over the world for surportnig this site as you all do and I thank you for that. I would also like to thank all the team of the Inland fisheries for their great support to me and the Waterville Fishery this year and last but not least on behalf of all the anglers of Ireland and all the Tourist Anglers, I must say thank you to Mr. Paul Burke who dose all the reports for the Trout and Salmon Magazine. I look forward to reporting all your catches for the 2017 season, so see you on 17/1/17

11/10/16 Their was a strong SE wind out there on Lough Currane today and if there were any boats manipulating I’m sure their reels were as silent as my phone. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that tomorrow is the final day of the Lough Currane 1916 Rising celebrations and It will be interesting who will register the last Game Fish of 2016.

My Noble Salmon  waiting for Alcatraz 
10/10/16  Lough Currane was all quiet on the SW front and as I say that the hired out boat department of www.lakelandshouse.com just sent a text in that yesterday, Mr. John Johnson, caught 3 Trout and today caught a basket of 30 Trout all caught on the drift.  Now for all we anglers who detest the dreaded Fish Farms, On my way home to Caherdaniel the other evening, I could see with the naked eye what looked a submarine in the Kenmare Bay, but low and behold when the paparazzi zoomed in with the camera it was one almighty massive Fish Farm being towed into position and as I always say the picture tells you the story and if I’m wrong you could say Alcatraz has come to Kenmare Bay. Weather same as yesterday, the only difference there was more cloud cover.

close up
As the eye sees it
9/10/16 Lough Currane was on the quiet side in the Rod bending department? but the same couldn’t be said for the filming   department. Mr. Peter Murnaghan, of Midas productions and his crew were filming The great Irish Fishing Challenge on Lough Currane today with Lough Currane’s Top Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy and I can tell you they had some challenge to get their catches on camera but sadly can’t give you these facts in other words you will have to wait until Dominic makes his TV debut on the Great Irish fishing Challenge, but I did have the satisfaction of catching them myself on my camera and as you can see by the pictures, I’m no professional because my Challenge was distance. Now for the Weather the pictures tell the story.

8/10/16 www.lakelandshouse.com take all the head lines and for good reason, in their hired out boat department, Mr. John Johnson, caught well over 30 Trout on the drift in a nice light SE wind with reasonable cloud cover. It just proves if your out there you can catch a few nice trout,  there is nothing like a falling Lake to activate a trout or two and if you click this link, this will give a first class view how fast Lough Currane has fallen in the last 48 hours.

Lough Currane this evening

Slowly but surely 
6/10/16 Lough Currane was all quiet on the SW front and just to let you know, as you can see by the pictures the 2016 rising of the Currane and the Butler Pool is on the fall. Now for some bad news on the upper lakes, this evening I received a notice from the secretary Mr. Kevin O’Sullivan of  http://watervillelakes.org/  and I quote, Hi Vincent, could you mention on your Blog that due to the extreme height of water & inaccessibility of the boats on the upper lakes we have been forced to cancel all fishing on the upper lakes for the remainder of the season. Thanks, Kevin. Wind SE fresh with good cloud cover,.

A good job done

Waterville House
5/10/16 No reports of any rod benders and to be fair with that big flood that’s not surprising. So we will head for the record breaking rainfalls and its official, Valentia Observatory in Caherciveen Co Kerry has recorded its highest level of rainfall on a single day since records began over 150 years ago and staying with the weather, yesterday there was 51.4 mm of rainfall and you might be interested to know that in the last four days there has been a grand total of 162.9 mm and Lough Currane was still rising today and here a few photos.

3/10/16 Lough Currane was at a standstill with a SE gale force wind with heavy rain and I mean heavy as you can see by clicking this link https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10206165522051843&id=1677581848  of the Coppal River, Video courtesy of Mrs. Mary Fitzgerald, this was taken this afternoon and it got worse, because this evening, the Inny Bridge is impassable and closed to traffic due to flooding. So we head for the email department and I quote,

2/10/16

2/10/16 Again my Noble Anglers were left red faced this evening as they entered bars to ponder their misgivings on their performance, as they all failed miserably in their duties in procuring a fine Currane Sea Trout, so on that lackadaisical note we will head up stream to the upper Lakes and Lough Derriana, Dr. Tim O’Connor caught 2 Juniors on the drift, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com Wind SE fresh with strong gusts at times with good cloud cover.

Catch me if you Can me name is
Paddy,  in 2017
1/10/16 There were a few Boats manipulating with their fly rods, but alas their lines were slack and their choice of fly, leave a lot to be desired, so on that note I have a message for all you doubting Thomas’s, I have had a few emails saying that there was no Bottle of Paddy for the last Salmon caught on the Waterville Fishery for 2016, well the truth of the pudding is in the eating and thankfully Paddy doesn’t have an expiry date so rock on 2017. Wind N light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover at times but mainly sunny.

30/9/16 My Noble Lords and Lady’s and Anglers alike, The 2016 Salmon Season has come to a close and I have to inform all the followers of the Waterville Fishery that today my Noble Anglers failed miserably in their duties this day in all departments but not all is lost the Salmon Gear has been put to one side as the Sea Trout gear takes over until the 12th of October so let the battle of the Sea Trout continue. Wind WSW light to fresh with good cloud cover with heavy down pours at times

Donal with his fine Salmon
caught on the Butler Pool
 29/9/16  The Lough Currane Anglers were in a silent mood as were Currane game fish, so on that not we will head for the backdate department or the specsavers department, yes you have it, I failed to double check my email box so apologies again to Waterville house and of www.watervillegolflinks.ie on the 25th of September, Mr. Donal O' Neill, of Co. Meath, caught a fine  7 lbs 12 ozs Salmon on the fly. Wind West light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover with heavy showers this morning. As you all know tomorrow is the last day of the 2016 Salmon Season and its competition Time and its simple, the last Salmon caught on the Waterville Fishery of the 2016 season will win a Bottle of Paddy and all you have to do is text your catch and I will come in and photo your fish with the Bottle. Competition ends when the day is finished on the Butler pool.

C&R Sea Trout
Rupert
28/9/16 All today’s action comes from the south side of the lake, Pierre from France was in top form today, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Frank Donnelly of www.lakelandshouse.com he caught 6 Sea Trout ranging from Junior class up to 2 lbs. and finished his day off with a fine 5 lbs Grilse. Now to the back date department and apologies  to Waterville House and at http://www.watervillegolflinks.ie for failing to report their action on the famous Butler Pool and yes, I failed miserably in my duties and that’s a fact, so lets put the record straight. On the 25th  September, Mr. Rupert Simonds-Gooding, caught a fine Grilse on the fly. Staying with the backdate department, I had an email today from Mr. Kevin Nagle, and in his own words. Hi Vincent, I forgot to send a photo of a Sunday afternoon 25/9/16 C&R fish.  Very nice trout about 7lbs. Very quick but poor quality photo before release. Had been up a week or two at least. Wind W then veered WSW fresh and overcast all day with heavy rain this evening.  


Tuesday, September 27, 2016

27/9/16

27/9/16 All quiet on the SW front, this day on Lough Currane and I can hear the topic of conversation this evening as the alcohol is consumed and the exaggerating department takes over and the excuses run as freely as their liquid libations, writing with a sober mind, I can only come to one conclusion, their excuses are just as bad as their ability to catch fish. Wind SSW light with reasonable cloud cover and quite warm.    

Monday, September 26, 2016

28/9/16

26/9/16 Local angler Mr. Jim Sayers, takes all the head lines as the other anglers looked on with envy and for good reason, Jim as you all know is mainly a fly angler, but today he decided to put the fly rod to one side and put the rolling rods out and it wasn’t long before he was rewarded with a fine 9 lbs. Salmon and by all accounts had a good battle and not satisfied with his one fish of the day, Jim decided to go for the C&R trolling department and yes you have it, he came up Trumps again with another Salmon in the 5 lbs. class which he put back and finished his day off with 5 Juniors again all caught on the troll and just for the record Jim would put the 9 pounder back, sadly it was badly hooked. Wind SE fresh with reasonable cloud cover.

25/9/16

25/9/16 The Lough Currane Anglers lost their stripes today and for good reason, they failed in all departments and if you were in the back Bars of Waterville this evening and listened  into their fishing pros and cons, you would think to yourself  by Jove theses anglers must be some fishermen, well today’s notes puts you in the picture.  As promised yesterdays amount of rainfall was 29 mm. Wind W fresh with reasonable cloud cover.      

Saturday, September 24, 2016

24/9/16

24/9/16 Again the weather was on the wild side on Lough Currane with a strong SW gale blowing down the lake, but this didn’t  deter some anglers heading out and producing the goods in the C&R department, Mr. Martin Coveney, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com caught a cracker of a 10 lbs. Salmon on the troll and sportingly released his catch and for the rest of the participating anglers, the least said the better. Wind as already stated. Just for the record www.met.ie was spot on with their forecast, will give you the amount of rainfall in tomorrows notes.

23/9/16

Red sky in the morning Shepherds warning
 An old wives tale, well think again
23/9/16 Lough Currane was on the wild side with a strong SW gale force wind blowing down the lake and very few boats ventured out from the North side, so on that note we head across the Valley to the River Inny and going by my secret service there was no rod benders reported and if this is not the case you can say without any fear of contradiction my secret service failed miserably in their reporting duties. Now to the weather alert from www.Met.ie There is a yellow alert  for rainfall Warning  for Galway, Mayo, Cork and Kerry, Over 25 mm likely in a 12 hour period, locally up to 40 mm in mountainous areas. Note that this is an update to the previous warning to include county Mayo in the risk area.

22/9/16

22/9/16 All the action came from the South side and in the words of Mr. Frank Donnelly the Commander-in-chief of www.lakelandshouse.com and I quote, in your backdate department, County down boys left yesterday 3 days fishing, 2 hired boats, averaged more than 20 juniors, to each boat each day.
Mark
May it be the first of many
I myself fishing with 15 year old Mark Whelan caught his first salmon on the fly and two sea trout at one and half each. All I can say is congratulations to Mark and welcome to the big time. Now for the rest of the Lough Currane news, well there isn’t any, except the wind was strong this morning blowing down the Lake, in my opinion strong wind or not a lot of anglers were River Inny bound, all I can say is I hope their reels were louder that my iphone. Here endeth today’s News.



         

Wednesday, September 21, 2016

21/9/16

Lough Currane in calmer waters 
21/9/16 Local Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com reported that Lough Currane was on the wild side this morning, so very few anglers if any ventured out. But come lunch time the wind had dropped and the sky cleared, a few anglers put their flies across the Lough Currane wave, but to no avail, so on that note we will head across the Valley to the River Inny and one angler takes all the Salmon headlines and that is UK angler Mr. Michael Fish and for good reason he caught himself a fine 12 lbs. Salmon and for the rest of the angling community, lake or river Angler, you all failed in your duties and going by my secret  service the majority of Lake Anglers headed for the Inny this afternoon, because there was a nice drop of water coming down the Inny after the heavy rain this morning. Wind SSW wild then veered NW light come lunchtime.          

20/9/16

20/9/16 There was only one Star angler today on Lough Currane and that was 15 year old Marc Whelan of Dublin, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com  Caught his first ever Sea Trout / junior on the fly and it wasn’t long before he followed it up with a another fine Junior, so congratulations to Marc and may it be the first of many. Now we head across to the South Side and the hired out boat department of www.lakelandshouse.com Mr. Niall O’Hearcain and his good friend, caught 6 Juniors on the drift. Now for the rest of the angling news, well there isn’t any for the simple reason the rest of the participating anglers failed miserably in their duties in all departments, so on that note we go to quote of the day and that goes to local Gillie Mr. Terence Wharton Jnr, I ain’t out in that pond, I’m fishing for a Lobster, Cheers!! Wind SW light with good clod cover with the odd light shower this afternoon.          

Monday, September 19, 2016

19/9/16

19/9/16 UK fly angler, Mr. Nigel Henshaw, while fishing with his Gillie, caught 1 Junior and finished their day with a  fine 2 lbs. Brown Trout. For the rest of the angling community, they failed miserably in their duties in the procuring of a wild game fish, or were they trying to camouflage their misgivings for the lack of fish, so they could exaggerate their catches in the back bar. Wind NW light with good cloud cover.

18/9/16

You have a better chance with a floating line !
18/9/16 Lough Currane was on the quiet side as fly anglers changed their flies and their fly lines from floating to intermediate with no immediate effect and by the end of the day you can say without any fear of contradiction, with no effect at all and as I say that I have just received a Text from local Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com and I quote, Bob and Roman from Luxemburg caught 3 Trout on the fly with me. So on that note we go to the backdate department of the hired out boat department of www.Lakelandshouse.com yesterday, Mr. Steven Nation and Mr. P Murphy, caught 8 Juniors on the drift. Now for a bit of stand up comedy, today I received a photo of an Angler trying out new supposed life saving gear and going by the photo my advice is stay in the Fishing shed Lads. Wind North light with reasonable cloud cover and the odd shower.

Liam Ellis. 2nd. Joe Murphy.
Joint 3rd Mr. Paul lawton and Mr. Eddie Blanch. Also a big thank you to The Sea Lodge for a great meal.
Back to today, Lough Currane was at a standstill with gale force winds from the SSE and if there were any boats out they have failed to report their catches or their losses.

9/9/16 The  2016 annual  Sea Trout Catch and Release Fly-fishing Competition on Lough Currane was brought to an abrupt standstill today and for good reason, there was one almighty storm from the SW, raging across the Lake and all the anticipating  anglers could only do was look on and the decision to cancel today’s action was swiftly taken and because of this it will be a one day event, so rock on tomorrow and the forecast isn’t too bad.

8/9/16 Lough Currane was like the wild West with strong SW blowing down the lake but this didn’t deter anglers from manipulating their flies across the water and hoping to entice a wild Atlantic Salmon or one of Lough Currane premier Sea Trout but alas at the end of their day my Noble Anglers moral was wilted until they headed for the Bar and the pint floated down and they spoke amongst themselves of the one that got away. Now back to the weather, wind as already stated,  just for the record it made a fair bit of rain today, the total amount of rainfall so far this month is 36.8 mm. Tomorrow is Lough Currane fly competition and sadly I won’t be able t to take photos of all the participating anglers, sorry for this.

6/9/16

6/9/16 Lough Currane was all quiet on all fronts and not surprising with the fog nearly to the ground this morning and one would have thought as it lifted plus a nice light breeze from the South some anglers would have seen some action even though it was very humid, to give you some idea this evening at 9. 30 pm it was 18c so on that note we head for the Waterville Boats and at watervilleboats@gmail.com backdate department Mr. Marc Luyton from Belgium and party, we start on the River Inny, in the last few days they have caught 3 Grilse up to 6 lbs. and returned 2. So they left the Inny and headed out on Lough Currane and so far Marc has recorded 9 Sea Trout and his good friend Dirk has caught 4 Sea Trout. Just for the record they have seen a good few Sea Trout and the same goes for the Salmon.

3/9/16

3/9/16 Before we get today’s manipulations a Important Notice from Mr. Rod Robinson. We have finally managed to get a date for the IFI Economist to come down and give a presentation on the joint survey WL&RT and IFI carried out last year on the economic benefit of angling tourism to the Waterville economy. It will be at 7:30 on the 9th September at the Waterville Inn, all welcome. Now for today’s action or the lack of it I should say, we start with first thing this morning, it was calm and come lunchtime it was like the wild west, with a strong SW wind blowing down the lake, some anglers stuck to their battle stations and some anglers headed for calmer waters, ie the Bars and going back to the anglers that kept manipulating their flies, one angler said it was like a Chinese takeaway out there, all I kept getting was a Birds nest.

28/8/16

28/8/16 There were no records broken on Lough Currane Salmon and Sea Trout department, or in the https://www.facebook.com/CharlieChaplinOfficial/?fref=ts  and you can say without any fear of contradiction they have made themselves look like right Charlie’s in all departments and its as simple as Black and White and not much could be said for the Green and Gold either, so the least said the soonest mended. Wind W light with bright sunshine all day.              

Saturday, August 27, 2016

Friday, August 26, 2016

26/8/16

26/8/16 All quiet on the SW front as the anglers looked to the heavens praying for a rod bender but their prayers weren’t answered, one can only come to the conclusion either they lack the skill in their choice of fly selection or drift or they weren’t praying hard enough and in my opinion they failed in both departments. Wind SW with reasonable cloud cover at times.  
 Its that Time of year again and to all you competitive Anglers, just to let you know, you can book your boat or seat for the annual  2016 ‘Currane Championship’ Waterville’s Sea Trout Catch and Release Fly-fishing Competition, organised this year by The Waterville Lakes & Rivers Trust, it will be held on Friday 9th and Saturday 10th September.

25/8/16

25/8/16  My Noble Anglers went out on Lough Currane this day with anticipation with their fly rods at the ready but by the end of their day they headed for the Bars, all they were looking for was Commiserations for their lack of their ability to produce a wild Atlantic Salmon or a Lough Currane specimen Sea Trout and all I can say is you’d want to pull your act together in all departments. Wind SW fresh with reasonable cloud cover with the odd shower.        

Wednesday, August 24, 2016

24/8/16

Tom strikes again
24/8/16 My Noble Anglers again failed miserably in their duties in all departments, so on that note we head for the upper Lakes and Lough Derriana and I will let Cork angler Mr. Tom Murphy have the last say on yesterday’s fishing and I quote, fished Lough Derriana yesterday with Stephen Galvin. Picked up and released this well reddened cock fish late in the evening. Plenty of resident brownies. Wind West light with plenty of sunshine.      

Tuesday, August 23, 2016

23/8/16

23/8/16 As you all know that Lough Currane is on the rise and as you well know that doesn’t make for good fishing and with another 11.9 mm rain fall yesterday, it will take two or three days to settle down. On the River front again my Noble anglers are either still scared of the that Mighty Bull or their keeping their catches to themselves, on that note we head for the Waterville Inn and I would like to on behalf of all the anglers and good people of Waterville, wish the Landlord Mr. Damian Duff a speedy recovery. Wind next to nothing with bright sunshine all day.

Monday, August 22, 2016

22/8/16

22/8/16 The Lough Currane wild Atlantic Salmon and Sea Trout were in a subdued mood today and that’s not surprising with filthy water coming down the Capal and the Commeragh River, it’s a good job we Lake anglers always have a good excuse! On the River Inny front all quiet on the western front and the only conclusion I can come to is, that Limousine  Bull must have been on duty on both banks of the River Inny, need I say more. Wind W light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover. Amount of rainfall yesterday was 17.7 mm.

Sunday, August 21, 2016

21/8/16

21/8/16 Sadly the weather takes all the headlines as my noble Anglers headed out for their days manipulations on Lough Currane and Lough Namona, all you can say their boats were lighter this evening as they burnt their fuel and ate their lunch baskets empty and hoping to find that allusive fish, be it on the fly or the troll. Now for their excuse for failing miserably in their duties, in the words of local Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea and of www.oshealoughcurrane.com Wind SW mad, on Lough Namona, local Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com reported much of the same in all departments. Staying with the weather, its made a good flood so all eyes will be on the river front tomorrow be it the World famous Butler Pool of www.watervillegolflinks.ie the Mouth of the Commeragh, the Commeragh River and last but not least the great River Inny so let the fly and Spin take the headlines tomorrow.
This what the anglers thought of today's fishing
and this what the Limousin Bull thought of my

20/8/16

20/8/16 Kerry had a yellow alert today but yellow alert or not this didn’t deter a few anglers venturing out and there is one angler, glad that he did and that was Northern Angler Mr. John McGee, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com caught a fine 3 lbs. Grilse/Salmon on the troll in a strong and wild NW wind with heavy showers and for the rest of the anglers they either failed in all departments or they had their fine day fisherman’s hat on. Wind as already stated, amount of rain fall yesterday 11 mm.

Friday, August 19, 2016

15/8/16

15/8/16 You can say without any fear of contradiction that Lough Currane was purely a French Connection today in the Salmon department and for good reason, French angler, Mr. Pierre Loyer, caught a fine 4lbs. Grilse on the troll and he lost another good fish. On a personal note I must apologise to Pierre for not going down to the lake to take the photo after he took the time to text me, again sorry for that and for the rest of the anglers they failed miserably in their duties in all departments as I did in the photography department but with any luck Pierre will send me a photo of his Fish.

Lough Currane was on the wild side with a strong SW wind blowing down the Lake, a few boats did venture out but my old iphone was as silent as their fly reels and that sums up today’s action, all I can say is it’s a good job my Noble anglers can blame the weather for the lack of producing a Wild Atlantic Salmon or a Lough Currane Specimen Sea Trout or Junior wouldn’t go a miss either. Wind as already stated there was good cloud cover and a nice drop of rain this evening.

Now to today’s news or the lack of it, so on that note I will let renowned Cork Angler, Mr. Tom Murphy, give his prospectus of today’s manipulations. Perfect conditions today on Currane. All I have to report is a softened cough and a dry net.
An enigmatic lake, and that keeps it interesting. Wind SW light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover at times.

10/8/16

Tom
10/8/16 They say you can’t keep a good angler from rising to the top, well today was a perfect example of that and yes you have it, Cork Angler Mr. Tom Murphy’s words of wisdom were brought out in practice today and I quote, the trout were off today so I tried a bit of Salmon Fishing and I can tell you one thing it wasn’t long before his fly rod was bent double into a almighty Salmon and Tom had won hell of a battle with his 10 lbs. Salmon and as his Salmon came to the surface he had one swipe with the Net and the rest is history. Tom’s next port of call was the Waterville Inn to celebrate his catching of his 10 lbs. Salmon and I will let his good friend, Mr. Brendan Spillane have the last word on Tom’s day out on Lough Currane and again I quote, Your fishing well Tom, No Spin No fly’s just facts. Now for the rest of the News and the news is the rest of my Noble Anglers failed miserably in their duties what they need is a few lessons in the art of presentation both in the Salmon and Sea Trout department. Wind North light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover at times but mainly sunny.              

9/8/16

Tim and his
14 lbs. Salmon
Tom's
Fine Sea Trout
9/8/16 Straight to the action and Catch of the day and that goes to Dr. Tim Gleeson, Tim caught a cracker of a 14 lbs. Salmon on the troll, while fishing with his Gillie. Now we head for Sea Trout department, Cork Angler, Mr. Tom Murphy was in good form with his fly rod again today on Lough Currane, so on that note I will hand you over to Tom and his story of his day, in his own words and I quote, Went out for a few hours this afternoon. Fishing was slow but picked up with the wind. Had a few juniors that were undersize, list a very good fish but managed to hold on to this one. Brought up a few nice boils as well. If conditions stay the same for the rest of the week, fishing could be good. Now we head up stream to the upper Lake and Lough Namona, A Swiss Angler caught a fine 3 lbs Sea trout on the drift, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com and for the rest of the angling news there isn’t any, you can say without any fear of contradiction that is your ration and if I’m wrong you can take it as red that the anglers that didn’t report their catches failed miserably in their duties but we will give them the benefit of doubt. Wind North with reasonable cloud cover,
