12/10/17 Well its that’s time of year again as the Curtin comes down on the 2017 Salmon and Sea Trout season and by all accounts my Noble anglers failed to register a strike on this last day and I can say without any fear of contradiction they failed miserably in their duties in all departments, so on that note, rock on 2018 Salmon and Sea Trout Season and keep the Waterville Fishery and Irish Flag flying high. I would also like to say a big thank you to all the team at the Inland fisheries Ireland and of www.fisheriesireland.ie for all their help this past season as they always do. On a personal note I would like to thank all the readers and anglers for sending photos and your own notes in. Last but not least a Big Thanks to Mr. Paul Burke, who writes for the Trout and Salmon magazine. I will finish by saying I look forward to reporting to you all in 2018 and may your lines be tight.

19/9/17

Lough Currane
19/9/17 We start in the C&R backdate department, just for the record in the past week, a couple of anglers caught 3 Salmon and 9 Sea Trout to their rods. Now today’s action, there were just a few boats out this day manipulating the waters of Lough Currane and by all accounts they all failed miserably in their duties and with a nice breeze from the south they have no excuse, either their fly or lure selection has a lot to be desired or their fishing the wrong fly line or their lure at the wrong depth. Wind as already stated and overcast with heavy this morning. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 16.0c.   

Monday, September 18, 2017

18/9/17

18/9/17 Lough Currane was all quiet on SW front. Wind, calm this morning and a light breeze from the W light this afternoon. Now to the comments department from the C&R angler and I quote, As any good angler knows that the older and bigger Sea Trout produce less eggs. I don’t see anything wrong with killing one. They have there job done. Its killing a junior or 1lb and half trout that’s a sin and we’re all guilty of this. As for  comments, what have all those so call experts done for Currane only take, take and give nothing back.

179/17

Belgium Anglers state their case


It is not a habit of mine joining in discussions on blogs, but as a member of the, by now, hated Belgian fishingparty that fished Currane last week, I feel I don’t have another choice. I feel that what has happened here is grately injust, to say the least, to my friends and myself. So I think we have a right to put things into perspective? At first my appologies for what will probably be not the best of English. Speaking for myself now at first, I have been flyfishing (only) in Ireland for more than thirty years by now, mostly for trout, but also for seatrout and occasionally for salmon. Fishing for at least once a year, sometimes two or even three times , my guess is that this must be close to fourty visits. During all this time I must indeed plead guilty for the massive killing, keeping and eating of 6 salmon and, I guess, 30 seatrout , all perfectly within your fishery laws. That’s not even one fish per visit, partly during a period when C&R was never heard of in Ireland! I know money should have nothing to do with flyfishing, but for the people accusing my friends and me for fishing for fish and not for fun, I will let them work out the maths for themselfs.  Maybe it’s good to know that one visit is a cost of around €1000.  So I think it’s reasonable to say the fish is of no importance to us, the fishing is. And while we’re at it, this money is spend in your economy by the way, Aer Lingus, rental cars, gasoline stations, local pubs and restaurants, self catering houses, fishing licenses and hired out boats…. And no, we are not privileged people moneywise, we are working class, of which 3 out of 4 are retired.
As for the beautifull lough Currane, it’s upper lakes, River Inny and surroundings, a place we love just as much as you do, we are flyfishing there since 1998. It has been the (disgusting from what I’ve read just recently) habit of ours of taking home one (1) good fish each, if we were lucky enough to catch one. More often than not we were not, but be sure that this did never curbed our enthousiasme for going at it very hard, that’s how people out there know us, feel free to ask around. We’ve had good years and bad one’s, and the bad one’s were not necessary those of recent years, two years ago we caught more than 70 seatrout (kept one each as usual, and yes, we know the difference from a brown trout), three years ago around 40, even when being blown of the lake half the week. So forgive us from thinking this lake is ok. On my first visit in 1998 I managed 14 seatrout, two years later I managed just 1 in very good conditions. This goes to show that for us visiting anglers this has always been a very fluctuating experience. And that’s what you see on these dreadfull pictures, three fish taken home, by four flyfishing friends experiencing a lean year on Currane, it’s as simple as that, no more, no less. The seatrout being totally ok for taking, we’ve seen much worse. The grilse less so, I admit, but for a first salmon taken in a lifetime, who are we to judge?
We always take legislation very seriously, any which country we fish, also our own. Hell, we were buying our salmon licenses in a small shop in mainstreet Waterville the first year we went there, while the whole of Waterville made fun of us for doing so!! But we did, because that’s who we are, we want to do things right, and if for some reason the taking of this one fish is no longer acceptable we will be the first to go along with this. Even without being mandatory we would go along with that, we fish Sheelin a couple of years, always C&R because the local club asks us to act that way, and someone put up some flyers with “don’t kill the goose with the golden eggs”in every mooring around the lake. We don’t take any fish, even if legally allowed, if we know something is wrong.  But it is Irish responsibility, or local anyway, to point visiting anglers in the right direction. For us Currane never had this problem, because told nowhere! Connemara has and great parts of Scotland have. A seatrout collapse in Kerry, never heard of! Surely a fishery as vast as this is monitored well, knowing exactly what comes in, and when to take action accordingly when nothing does. The River Inny  is looked after nicely the last couple of years and that’s only a few miles away. If Currane is in the state you all say it’s in, how come nobody is taking any action? But that is really not my business, it’s yours.  Did I mention that I fished the Inny as well this year? On the C&R basis, barbless single hooks and all that is required. I did not do well, but enjoyed every moment of it, despite being the fishmonger you all suggest I am.
What struck us the most, except for the language some of you use (this “wanker” boy taking the lead), is the fact that you all were very quick in judging us, being foreign I guess did us no good. Let me tell you that during our week just us, a man from France and a party from the UK were fishing the lake, there just was nobody else, only foreigners. Like you all will know probably, this lake used to employ as much as fourty ghillies a long time ago, while commercially being netted for seatrout/salmon, you surely must admit that fishing cannot be the problem.
So what happens now, I don’t know, we might come back to fish, probably not. Some of you might applaud that, getting rid of foreign fishermen. Allow me to tell you just one more thing, this has taken long enough. Next time you drive into town passing Currane River bridge, if you have the problem I think you have, it will be on your left hand (salty)side, not us on your right. And it will be foreign too, and not so easily to get rid of. But if you manage to get your act together, (until a couple of day’s ago we would have taken a flight and supported you in doing so), commercial interests on the lake, environmental ones, and even the ones shouting at us incognito,  to face and fight this problem, the iconic status of the salmon and seatrout might help you in court if the judge is a relative of Kingsmill Moore. If not, which is likely, it will certainly help you to point out the economical value of this fishery, because it’s all about that these days.  And that’s when you will wish there were more of us foreign fishermen left on the system, we add nicely to the figure. I rest my case!

Kind regards to you all, even to the one person who owns that Sage rod !!!

16/9/17

16/9/17 Lough Currane was all quiet on the SW front, so we will head up to the upper lakes and Lough Derriana and the C&R Department on the Lough and the Inny so I will let the angler's themselves tell the story of their trip so far on the Waterville fishery,  Hi Vincent. My wife Carolyn caught her first fish on the fly on Derriana today. I had a lovely grilse on the Inny yesterday. Let me know your email address and I'll send pictures. Cheers. Nick.

15/9/17


15/9/17 Just a few boats stimulating on Lough Currane and it was all quiet on the SW front and with the wind in the NE that's not surprising. So
now to the complaints department, A point was made that I should stay neutral, normally I would agree but on this occasion I would beg to differ, for this reason, I won’t tolerate people who abuse tourist anglers and who I might add  haven’t broken any fisting law, these Anglers  come to the Waterville Fishery to fish and not to be abused on the net after their Fishing Trip to Waterville, point of order if you don’t mind me saying so, what condition were these Fish in after a good battle? Were you in the boat with these anglers? Answer is No!        

Thursday, September 14, 2017

14/9/17

14/9/17 There were just a few boats out this day on Lough Currane and yes you have it, they failed miserably in their duties in all departments and  a few lessons from tourist anglers wouldn’t do any harm and why do I say this? Well it stems from all the negative comments made today and I smell a touch of jealousy, obviously these great Anglers have caught more in a few days than you anglers have caught all season? And as the C&R angler says they don’t come into graze. Now for today’s weather, wind, going by the internet today it was coming from all directions but mainly NW with good cloud cover and the odd shower. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 7.0mm. Maximum air temperature 14.0c.

13/9/17 There were just one or two boats out manipulating the Waters of Lough Currane and going by my phone I’m sad to say they failed miserably in their Duties in all departments. On that note, we will head for the comments department and even though I say it myself the Hampshire professionals put it perfectly and I must admit its worth reading. Now to the Backdate department and the full facts and photos of the Belgium anglers trip to the Waterville Fishery so I will let Marc tell you all their facts. We’ve had a very challenging week on Currane, not at least for the very bad weather, fishing from September 5th to September 11th. One Salmon on the Butler Pool, two good Sea Trout ranging from  4 ½ lbs. up to 6 lbs. on Lough Currane, plus we also caught 12 juniors which we returned and a number of brownies also returned. Hope to come back next year. Wind NW fresh to strong and gusty with heavy showers. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 7.4mm. Maximum air temperature 15.6c.

12/9/17 Lough Currane was at a standstill by lunchtime,  what boats were out there called it a day and for good reason, there was a strong and wild SW wind blowing and come this evening it was storm force with www.met.ie  issuing a yellow warning and that sums up today’s action and I can say without any fear of contradiction my Noble anglers were completely exonerated  from failing in their duties in all departments. Wind as already stated and just for the record it made a fair bit of rain this afternoon. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 4.6 mm. Maximum air temperature  15.5c.

Nigel
Butler Pool 
10/9/17 A few boats ventured out first thing this morning, but come lunch time they called it a day, but as I say that one boat did dog it out for the day and drew a blank, but this didn’t stop the Hampshire Professionals from recording their Grand Slam, and that accolade goes to Hampshire Professional, Mr, Nigel Henshaw, and he did it in style with a cracker of a 9 lbs, Salmon caught on the fly, down stream on the World Famous Butler Pool and at www.watervillegolflinks.ie  and I tell you there is one hell of a party in the back of the Lobster Bar and in the words of the Hampshire Professionals and I qoute , we ain’t finished yet.

Just for the record, juniors and browns were all returned. Now you can say these anglers didn’t fail miserably in their duties, lets hope they can make it a Grand slam tommrow, but going by the forecast it isn’t looking good with www.met.ie  putting Kerry on a yellow warning and forecasting W to NW winds gusting up to 110 Km/h and if this is the case, the high stool will be the first port of call for my Noble Anglers. Wind NW fresh to strong with heavy showers. Yesterdays weather amount of rainfall 12.8 mm. Maximum air temperature 16.0c.

7/9/17

7/9/17 There were six boats manipulating on the Lough Currane waters this day and sadly their performance has a lot to be desired and its about time we anglers pulled our flies up and got our act together! On those words of wisdom, we will head for the comments department on the 6/9/17 a comment was made why wasn’t photos taken of the fish caught, well here is your answer from the C&R Angler. As any good angler knows Paul, the more time Sea Trout are out of the water less chance of survival, so they went straight back, I had no time for a photo, its easy take photos when you kill them. Vincent I cant under why you are getting so much stick on your Blog, your job is to report catches, not manage a fishery, your work is top class, photos brilliant and you tell the truth every day. Not inventing stories or insulting people. Fine honest reports. Keep up the honest work. Wind West fresh with good cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 16.6c.

Wild Goats !
17.3 6/9/17 There were a few boats out manipulating in all departments this day and going by my telephonic communications, the Wild Lough Currane Game Fish pulled another one over the anglers as they came home empty handed and red faced and sadly could only talk about the one that got away! Wind SW with good cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 1.4mm. Maximum air temperature 17c.

5/9/17

5/9/17 There were just a few boats out and all failed miserably in their duties in all departments, so the least said the better, all I will say on the matter, a few lessons wouldn’t go a miss on the choice of flie and presentation and if you’re a learned lure angler, you can say a Toby or not Toby! Wind NW light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterdays weather amount of rainfall 2.8mm. Maximum air temperature 17.3

4/9/17 All the Sea Trout fly headlines come from the North side and Bungalow, Mr. Arnold Slater, while fly fishing with his gillie, Mr. Tom O’Shea and of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com caught and released a fine  1 ½ lbs. Sea Trout and for the rest of my Noble anglers all they could say was at the end of their day was, we failed miserably in our duties. Wind SW light to fresh. Now to the complaints department and thankfully it’s not me, but about comments made by other anglers and here is his comment that he sent via email. Hi Vincent could you please put my comment on your Blog, Can u tell regular angler and William Avery they only read what they want to see. Comments on the 2nd there liars.

3/9/17

Lough Currane!
3/9/17 The big flood takes all the headlines and with 39.8 mm rainfall in 14 hours that’s not surprising. In the wild fish department, it was all quiet on the SW front and with little to no wind, so you can say my Noble flie angler is exonerated for any misdemeanors and as you can see by the professorial photo, Lough Currane was on the calm side, plus there was fog on the Lake at times. Yesterdays weather amount of rainfall as already stated. Maximum air temperature 17c.  

Saturday, September 2, 2017

2/9/17

Where Eagles Dare!
2/9/17 Lough Currane was all quiet on all fronts and for good reason, http://www.met.ie/forecasts/ put Kerry on an orange alert with 40 mm plus of rainfall with a Strong SSE forecasted, just for the record the heavy rain started about 11 am and is still falling 10 hours later. We will exonerate all the Waterville anglers this day as the weather took control of today’s procedures, just for the record there were six boats out manipulating and if a Wild Atlantic Salmon or wild Lough Currane specimen Sea Trout were caught the angler or anglers in question would have failed miserably in their duties for not letting their fingers do the talking. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 17.3c.      

Friday, September 1, 2017

Their quote of the day is, Good Anglers never Give Up! Now for the rest of the angling news, there isn’t any, for the simple reason the rest of my Noble anglers failed miserably in all departments. Wind flat calm this morning, come afternoon there was a nice breeze from the W with bright sunshine all day. Yesterdays weather. Amount of rainfall 1.0 mm. Maximum air temperature 16.8 c.

31/8/17

A two wing Gull !
31/8/17 My Noble anglers went out on the Waters of Lough today with enthusiasm and as the bells struck 5 pm one can say without any fear of contradiction, the anglers enthusiasm had sank to an all time low as they headed for the Bars and Off licences to drown their sorrows in whisky and beer and in the words of one Angler after a few pints and I quote, in the words of Vincent Appleby, I can say that my Noble Salmon and Sea Trout failed miserably in their duties on this last day of August. Wind NE light to calm and sunny. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 1.0 Maximum air temperature 16.6.

30/8/17

My Feathers always get a rise!
30/8/17 This reporting is getting like the sixties TV series Peyton Place, the same script day in day out and yes you have it, the Waterville anglers failed again miserably in their flie selection and one is coming to the conclusion we anglers are losing our touch and as one old angler said to me in a Bar in Castleisland today, Vincent, you anglers down there never had it, cheers and walked out laughing!! Wind NW with showers and reasonable cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 0.2 mm. Maximum air temperature 16.6c.    

Tuesday, August 29, 2017

29/8/17

Birds of a feather!
Again we start in a negative mode for the simple reason the Lough Currane anglers failed miserably in their duties in all departments, I come to the conclusion that their flie and lure selection has a lot to be desired in all departments in this month of August, but on a positive note I was talking to an angler this evening, he was telling me that he caught and released 50 juniors on his flie fishing trip to Lough Currane and he was delighted! Wind NW light to fresh with good cloud cover this morning and very bright this evening. Yesterdays Weather, amount of rainfall 8.6 mm. Maximum air temperature

A dry flie  man at his best!

Wind SW light to calm with light to heavy rain at times. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 1.0mm. Maximum air temperature 18.6c.

Wing and a Prayer 
27/8/17 There were just a few boats out manipulating this day and with all their efforts I can say without any fear of contradiction their lines were slack throughout the day, be it flie or troll. Wind SW light to calm and overcast. Yesterday whether, amount of rainfall 0.4mm. Maximum air temperature 17.9c.    

Saturday, August 26, 2017

26/8/17

Now this is a real angler!
26/8/17 Lough Currane was flat calm for a good part of the day, so as you can imagine my Noble fly anglers were left looking at the water, but eventually the wind did get up from the SE, light, but sadly the fly anglers flie selection has a lot to be desired this day and for the anglers that troll it was all quiet on the SW front. Wind as already stated. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 18.2c.        

Friday, August 25, 2017

25/8/17

Reflections !
25/8/17 The  wind was in the SW but sadly my Noble Anglers had to confess they weren’t at their best as you can see they failed their test, but I must confess at least I do my best, on that poetic note we will finish with yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 0.4mm, Maximum air temperature 17.5c.

Thursday, August 24, 2017

24/8/17

Short and bitter and its simple, the Lough Currane anglers have lost their flie and trolling skills this week and in the words of one TV presenter, what went wrong? its simple, the Waterville anglers failed miserably in their duties to score in all departments, so the least said the soonest mended. Wind SW light with good cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 1.8mm. Maximum air temperature 17.1c.

23/8/17

http://www.irishexaminer.com/
23/8/17 Lough Currane was on the quiet side in all departments and you don’t  have to be a rocket scientist to know that my Noble anglers failed miserably in their duties in all departments, be it flie or lure, so on that note we head to the news paper department and for good reason, in yesterdays Irish Examiner the Waterville Fishery got a good write up as we do every week, but this week is rather special because of the specimen Sea Trout caught last week and all I can say is a big thank you from me and all who support the Waterville Fishery. Wind W light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 0.2mm. Maximum air temperature 18.7c.

22/8/17

Lough Currane was calm the same couldn't be said for the anglers! 
22/8/17 Lough Currane was on the quiet side even though one angler did report some nice fish moving in the afternoon, but sadly my noble Salmon and Sea Trout gave the anglers a Winston Churchill, but going by the photo my Noble Anglers had a good excuse because there was little to no wind and what wind was there was coming from the South then veered SW, light to calm with reasonable cloud cover in the morning, come afternoon very sunny. Yesterdays weather amount of rainfall 1.6mm. Maximum air temperature 17.0c.

Monday, August 21, 2017

21/8/17

21/8/17 Yesterdays deluge was 17.4 mm, fresh water or not my Noble anglers failed miserably in all departments, be it flie or lure, in other words their flies and lures had a lot to be desired in the eyes of the Salmon and Sea Trout, I think that sums up today’s failures. Wind SW light to fresh and overcast with misty rainfall at times. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall as already stated. Maximum air temperature 18.4c.    

Sunday, August 20, 2017

20/8/2017

20/8/17 The Lough anglers this day got a deluge of heavy rain as the mountains streams poured down into the lake and the Salmon and Sea Trout ran for cover to the dismay of the disgruntled angler and in the words of one angler and I quote, No good just a few Brownies, so on that note we will head for You Tube and Vincent Donnelly’s Video on an anglers view. Wind SE light to fresh with heavy rain and made another good flood. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 0.2 mm. Maximum air temperature 16.8c.

Wind W light to fresh with good cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 3.6 mm. Maximum air temperature 16.4c.  

Friday, August 18, 2017

18/8/17

18/8/17 Straight to the apology  backdate department to Waterville Boats and at watervilleboats@gmail.com and for good reason the Commander-in-chief Mr. Michael O’Sullivan of Waterville Boats, sent me a text last week that an angler from the US while fishing with Michael caught two fine Sea Trout on the fly while drifting down by Darby’s Island, their weights were 1 ¾ lbs and 1 ½ lbs and both fish were returned to fight their way to the spawning grounds of the Commeragh and the surroundings streams of Lough Currane. Now back to the present, there were just a few boats out and for good reason, Lough Currane was on the wild and quiet side this day and that is not surprising with a strong NW wind blowing with heavy showers and good cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 2.2mm.Maximum air temperature 17.4c.                      

Thursday, August 17, 2017

17/8/17

17/8/17 There were just a few boats out manipulating this day and I can say without any fear of contradiction their lines were slack and after the reasonable big flood yesterday that isn’t surprising and with 16.0mm of rainfall what do you expect, at least my Noble Anglers had a reasonable excuse for not procuring a Wild Lough Currane Game Fish on a rising Lake. Wind Strong SW with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall as already stated, maximum air temperature 17.6c.

13/8/17

Fantastic Evening out at Five Spice
13/8/17 The Lough Currane anglers were in a dormant and lethargic mood this day on Lough Currane and I think this sums up today’s manipulations so on that note I think I will Spice today’s notes up on a positive note, this evening I and Margaret headed out for the 5 Spice Restaurant in Waterville and I can tell you without any fear of contradiction their food and service is second to none and just for the record I have had some great Stakes over the years and have eaten in some of the best Restaurants in The US, the UK and the dear old Emerald Isle and the 5 Spice is simply the best in all departments.

10/8/17

10/8/17 Today on Lough Currane and the Waterville Fishery in general was a day for reflections of my Noble anglers failures in producing a wild Game fish, be it with fly or lure, all I can say is if the angler was as bad in calling a pint as they are catching wild game Fish we would be in deep trouble and I thinks this sums up today’s reflections. Wind NW with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 17.3 c.

26/7/17 All the Game fishing headlines come from the South side, so straight to the Salmon and Sea Trout fly department, Mr. Mark Whelan, while fly fishing with his Gillie Mr. Frank Donnelly of www.lakelandshouse.com caught a fine 6 lbs. Salmon and finished his day off with three nice Sea Trout all in the 1 lbs. class. And for the rest of my Noble Anglers there was no comment on this fine catch, all I can say jealousy will get you nowhere and my advice is, get a few rod benders and your problem will be solved. Wind NW fresh to strong with good cloud cover with the odd shower. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 11.2mm. Maximum air temperature 18.2c.

25/7/17 Photo update and catch update


One happy Family after their days fishing
Breaking news on the Salmon front; German anglers, fishing with their gillie Mr . Frank Donnelly  of www.lakelandshouse.com on Lough Currane caught a fine  5 lbs. Salmon on the troll . and in the hired out boat fly department of www.oshealoughcurrane.com caught and released  four fine Sea Trout on the drift.

25/7/17 Lough Currane was all quiet on the SW front in all departments, so on that note we head for the upper lakes and Lough Namona and in the words of local Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com on Lough Namona today, flat calm all day what do you expect miracles and I think that puts today’s fishing conditions in its proper prospectus. Wind S light to calm and overcast with heavy rain at times this evening. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 18.7c.

Ballinskelligs Bay this evening 
24/7/17  The Lough Currane anglers were in a dormant mood in all departments, be it fly or troll and in the words of one renowned  angler and I quote, today we anglers were going around in ever decreasing circles and eventually we came up with a common denominator, and you don’t need a computer to work out the answer because its simple, yes you have it, absolutely useless. Wind NW light with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 17.8
