Lough Currane
31/5/16 Blazing saddles was the order of the day, as the anglers looked up to the heavens and all they could see was a clear blue sky with a raging sun shining down on Lough Currane, they tried and failed in all departments, be it lure or fly and as you can see by the photo the only thing my Noble anglers caught was a suntan. Wind NW light to fresh with little to no cloud cover.

30/5/16 The hot weather takes all the headlines, with bright sunshine and a light wind from the West, so you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that all anglers failed miserably in the catching of a Wild Atlantic Salmon or a Lough Currane wild specimen Sea Trout. Just for the record Co Kerry is officially in a heat wave.

20/5/16 The Lough Currane anglers had a hard time of it and for good reason , it was wild out there with a strong SW wind blowing across the lake, plus there was a good drop  of rain falling and has made a good flood but with all the elements against them they battled on but sadly to no avail.

16/5/16

16/5/16 sadly the weather takes all the headlines and to be fair to my Noble Anglers all the elements are against the anglers, ie a low lake but that said in their defence, in my book they still  failed miserably in their duties. wind calm this morning, come afternoon there was a light breeze from the West

Sunday, May 15, 2016

15/5/16

14/5/16 Lough Currane was on the calm side in all departments, even though there was a light breeze from the West and reasonable cloud cover but still my Noble Anglers  couldn’t produce a Wild Atlantic Salmon or a premier specimen Seatrout, so on that note I will  go to quote of the day, one Gillie sent his report in and he caught  nothing, it's time  for a rain dance or a river dance and I flatly agree.

Saturday, May 14, 2016

14/5/16

‎14/‎05/‎16 Again the wather takes the head lines on Lough Currane for the simple reason, my Noble Anglers failed to lure the old gentlemen, you could say Toby or not toby and alas it wasn't Toby or fly so on that note we head for the upper Lakes and Lough Derriana, there was some good Brown Trout fishing  today with a good bag of trout caught up to 1 1/2 lbs. Wind West light with reasonable cloud cover and very warm and just for the record the maximum temperature yesterday was 23 c.

Friday, May 13, 2016

13/5/16

13/5/16 Lough Currane was in bright  sunshine all day with a light breeze  from from the West, so you can say without any fear of contradiction that Friday the 13th kept  it's reputation intact, in other words my Noble Anglers failed miserably in their duties.

Thursday, May 12, 2016

12/5/16

12/5/16 Lough Currane was on the quiet side and not surprising with a light and variable NE wind, with  reasonable cloud cover and very humid. The only bit of action reported was by UK angler Mr. Dave Eccelstone, Dave reported that he and his Gillie lost one Salmon at the net. I told Dave losses don’t count and won’t be reported?  Well all I can say is writer’s privilege, ha-ha!              
That's what the Anglers thought of the Fishing as they
headed for the Bars this evening.

11/5/16

11/5/16 I start in the apology department, in two reports of the last few days I have spelt a renowned Anglers name wrong so lets put the record straight, I apologise to Mr. Alistair Dunbar for this clerical error and as Alistair politely told me its not Mr. Alistair Finbar, its Mr. Alistair Dunbar and I stand corrected and forgive the pun, I made myself look like a right Dumbbell. Now for today’s action, all the head lines go to UK angler Mr. Dave Eccelstone, while fly fishing with his Gillie Mr. Vincent O’Sullivan of www.vincentsfishing.com caught a fine 9 ¼ lbs. Salmon, on the photographic front, both anglers seem to be photo shy. On the weather front it made a reasonable flood last night, amount of rainfall 23.7 mm.

Wind SE fresh with good  cloud cover with light rain this evening
