Some Fish caught on the River Avon

Peter
25/3/16 There was a strong SSW gale blowing across the lake today, but this didn’t deter German Angler Mr. Peter Rall from going out to fight the elements, as his Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com headed for the South Side to calmer waters, as they were trolling along and having a good chinwag, the next thing all they could here was the reel singing, Dominic  shouted wind in the rods we’re in him and the rest is history and the pictures tell the full story of today’s action. Wind as already stated, the amount of rainfall yesterday was 12.3 mm.

24/3/16 My Noble Salmon were resting on their laurels today and this picture puts it in it’s proper context, in other words and yes you have it My Noble Anglers failed miserably in their duties in all departments, even though there were reports one angler did bend the rod into him, but the Salmon won the day.

Salmon on the troll, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com  and for the rest of the angling community the least said the better, going by their lack of performances in the Salmon department, you could say My Noble Salmon were having a good laugh at them.

21/3/16 My notes are getting as hard as it is to catch the wild Atlantic Salmon and if my daily reports were as bad as the anglers skill in catching fish, I would be in the deep deep doo-da! Wind W light with good cloud cover.

20/3/16  There were a nice few boats manipulating in all departments but sadly their skills fell well short of enticing a wild Atlantic Salmon to the fly or the lure and with a nice breeze form the SE. One would have thought my Noble Anglers would have seen more action. Wind as already stated and just for the record there was reasonable cloud cover.

18/3/16 Again Lough Currane was on the quiet side in all departments. On the weather front there was bright sunshine all day with a very light SE wind blowing ,who could blame my Noble Anglers for not producing the goods. You could say today was more for big game Fishing and as you can see by the photo and just imagine this Noble Fish at the end of your fly line.

St. Patrick

9/3/16 The wind  was in the Northeast,  but my Noble Anglers didn't have a feast as they looked down at the waters edge at end of their day all they could  only say to themselves, my Noble Salmon have won the day.  

Tuesday, March 8, 2016

8/3/16

8/3/16 My Noble Salmon are still in a  lethargic mood, in the eyes of the angler as he looks up to the sky’s and say’s to himself what the hell am I doing wrong? or is it that my Noble Anglers presentation isn’t up to the required standard? I will let you decide. In defence of Lough Currane and its anglers that are out there every day, it would be nice to see a few more boats out there, you take today there was only two boats out that I know of . Wind light and from the West and overcast with heavy rain this evening.

7/3/16

7/3/16 Lough Currane was on the quiet side in all departments, so quiet infact one renowned Gillie decided to head out to sea on the Wild Atlantic way and manipulate a few Lobster Pots but that is another story. Wind NE light with the odd shower with reasonable cloud cover.      

Sunday, March 6, 2016

6/3/16

6/3/16  There was a strong squally Northeast wind blowing and just a few boats ventured out which is not surprising and with frequent bitterly cold showers who can blame the anglers that headed for the high stool. So on that note we head for the Birthday department, on behalf of all the Anglers I would like to wish Local Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com a very Happy Birthday.    

Saturday, March 5, 2016

5/3/16

5/3/16 Lough Currane was on the quiet side after yesterdays breaking of the ice, but sadly the lake soon froze up again today in the Salmon department, but to be fair it was dam cold out there with a light East wind blowing down the Lake with the odd shower with reasonable cloud cover at times.

Terence
4/3/16  Mr. Terence Wharton Jnr. Breaks the Ice on Lough Currane with a cracker of a Salmon in the 11 lbs. class caught on the troll. Terence was telling me that he had one hell of a battle while playing his Salmon. Now that’s done and dusted I’m heading to the Lobster Bar and celebrate my Bar of silver with a few pints of Porter. For the rest of the angling contingent they failed miserably in their duties. Just for the record Terence was telling me that he has caught a good number of Kelts, an average of 4 each trip. Wind East  and in the words of  Terence, it was Black out there.

Lough Currane Anglers are losing the plot  
3/3/16  There were just two boats manipulating their artistry in the fly department combined with a mixture of trolling and their results are as follows, 6 Kelts between the two boats and you could say they failed miserably in their duties not like this Angler who never fails, photo taken by Mr. Grant Rogerson.  Wind SE then veered NW light to fresh with a mixture of rain and hale showers.

2/3/16 Again the weather takes all the news, there was a strong North wind blowing across the lake with heavy showers. One boat did venture out and took cover in the Mouth of the Commeragh and you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to work out that the Anglers in question were trying to catch the first Salmon on the fly, well you can say without any fear of contradiction the Anglers in question failed. Going back to the weather the amount of rainfall for February was 190.6 mm. Wind as already stated,

Mr. Jeremy O'Connor R.I.P.
1/3/16  I start with the sad news that Lough Currane has lost another great Angler, Mr. Jeremy O’Connor of Cork sadly past away yesterday,
Jeremy had fished the Waterville fishery all his life and in the words of his Brother Dr. Tim O’Connor, my Family have been fishing Lough Currane and the Waterville Fishery for well over sixty years plus and I think that says it all, so on behalf of all the Anglers and the good people of Kerry I would like to send our condolences to Jeremy’s Family and friends.  May He Rest In Peace.
