30/3/17 Lough Currane was on the quiet side today after yesterdays cracker of a day and for good reason, it was fairly wild out there today with a strong SW wind blowing, there were six boats out and by all accounts it was hard especially in the fly department, reason being its dam hard to hold a boat for long in those rough conditions, so today all anglers are exonerated for not procuring  a wild Atlantic Salmon. Wind as already stated, overcast with heavy showers. Amount of rainfall yesterday 6.7mm.

29/3/17 There  was some cracking fishing on the Waterville Fishery today, so lets get to the action. We start on the world Famous Butler Pool and for good reason renowned  Waterville Golfer Mr. Liam Higgins, caught a fine 12 lbs. Salmon on the fly this morning. Now for the Butler Pool quote of the day, comes from Liam’s Daughter Lynda Higgins and I quote, two in one week, not bad going, think he should pack in the golf and take up fishing, well I would beg to differ because Liam is making we pro anglers look like amateurs so my advise is stick to the golf! Now we head down stream to the mighty Lough Currane and Straight the Mouth of the Commeragh Dr. Tim O’Connor of Cork and Waterville caught a cracker of a lightening fresh 10 lbs. Salmon on the fly, while fishing with his gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com Now we head for the trolling department, French angler Mr. Pierre Loyer of Paris, France, caught a cracker of a 10 lbs. Salmon on the troll while fishing with his Gillie and finished his day off with two fine Brown Trout. Wind South fresh and overcast with showers. Amount of rainfall yesterday 5.2mm.

23/3/17

23/3/17 All the Lough Currane anglers caught today was a frozen asset as temperatures plummeted, as my Noble Salmon froze the angler into defeat and into despair and why you ask yourself, its simple, they lack professionalism and the best of all they lack ability in all departments and the truth of the pudding is in the eating of. Wind East light to calm with bright sunshine. Amount of rainfall yesterday 0.1mm. Maximum air temperature 9.3c. Minimum 3.0c.

22/3/17 Back to the cold weather, as the majority of anglers decided to rest on their laurels and warm their feet beside the fire in the Bar, so what can you say about these so called anglers, simple fine day fishermen!

20/3/17

20/3/17 This Bank holiday Monday was a wild day and going by my Waterville Fishery secret service, there were just 3 boats out and to be fair they did well to stay out there because there was some violent gusts from the NW with showers and a mixture of hailstones and last but not least they didn’t procure any Salmon. Wind NW fresh to strong, amount of rainfall yesterday 1.2mm. Maximum air temperature 12.9c. Minimum 10.7 c.

Liam
19/3/17 There were 5 boats manipulating the Lough Currane waters and sadly my noble anglers couldn’t stimulate the wild Atlantic Salmon, so on that note we will head downstream to the World Famous Butler Pool of www.watervillegolflinks.ie where there was some mighty stimulation in Mr. Liam Higgins fly rod and for good reason, while fishing the pool he caught a cracker of a 13 lbs. Salmon and as his Son-in-law Local Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy netted Liam’s fine Salmon he said to Dominic, as you know I’m a pro Golfer and now I can say I’m now on top of the Waterville Pro fly league for 2017.

Hugh
Nothing like your first Salmon on the Fly 
Noel
18/3/17 A cracker of a day on Lough Currane, normally I leave the best to last but not today and for good reason the race for the first Salmon to be caught on the fly is over, its quite ironic in one sense the gentleman in question is Mr. Hugh Patrick O’Connor of Boherbue North Cork, who came of age today in years and christened his 18th Birthday  off with his first ever  6 ½ lbs. Salmon caught on the fly off the point of Grassy Island and as his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com said welcome to the O’Shea school of fly fishing. On a personal Note its great to see a young angler take the limelight and again well done Hugh and may it be the first of many. Now we head for the trolling department and all the trolling headlines go to Mr. Noel Clancy of Waterville and Kildare, while trolling down the North Shore he caught himself a fine Salmon just under the 10 lbs. on the troll and by all accounts had a great battle and the rest is history, Wind WNW and blustery with heavy down pours at times. Amount rainfall yesterday was 5.2 mm, the maximum air temperature 11.3c minimum 7c.

16/3/17 click Atlantic Salmon I'm sure you will be interested

16/3/17  My Noble anglers are more interested in the Cheltenham races than the catching of a Wild Atlantic Salmon and why do I come to this conclusion because this evening after sending out text’s to all the Gillie’s, I got one reply and I quote, Back Ruby Walsh and No Salmon, well you can say without any fear of contradiction that text sums up today’s action in a nutcase and with five Boats out they ought to be ashamed of themselves. Wind N light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover, with the odd shower. Amount of rainfall yesterday 3.9 mm. maximum air temperature 13c. Minimum 8.3c.

Wednesday, March 15, 2017

15/3/17

15/3/17 There were just a few boats out and I’m afraid it’s back to the fishing school of technology for the lot of them as they all failed miserably in their duties in all departments, so on that note we will head for the Gospel of fishing! firstly don’t bull shit! secondly don’t exaggerate your catches!  And last but not least never get caught out on you’re 3 major fishing sins of the day! Wind SW light and overcast with rain at times. Amount of rainfall yesterday 1.1mm. Maximum air temperature 13.2 minimum 8.2c.

Monday, March 13, 2017

13/3/17

13/3/17 There was just two boats out  and both failed miserably in their duties with rod and line and last but not least they failed to let their fingers do the talking at the end of their day, the only excuse they may have is that they were too embarrassed to admit their failures. Wind SW light and overcast.

Sunday, March 12, 2017

12/3/17

12/3/17 Lough Currane was all quiet on the SW front. Just for the record there were 3 boats out and going by all accounts all anglers failed miserably in their duties in all departments so the least said the soonest mended. On a personal note it would be great to see a few more boats out there. Wind, there was the odd violent gust from the NW then veered SW light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover. Amount of rainfall yesterday 6.5 mm. Maximum air temperature 12.9 c

Saturday, March 11, 2017

11/3/17

11/3/17 The talk of the day was the weather and for good reason, it was a cracker of a day with bright sunshine with reasonable cloud cover at times and a nice breeze from the SW. There was a nice few boats out manipulating and stimulating the Currane waters, but all to no avail because my Noble anglers couldn’t stimulate their flies or their Rapalas to attract the Wild Atlantic Salmon. Wind as already stated, amount of rainfall yesterday  1.2 mm. maximum air temperature 11.3c.  

Friday, March 10, 2017

10/3/17

Thursday, March 9, 2017

9/3/17

Wind SE with good cloud cover. Amount of rainfall yesterday 1.1mm maximum air temperature 11.6 c            

Wednesday, March 8, 2017

8/3/17

8/3/17 There were just two boats manipulating this day and they caught noting for their efforts, though local Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com reported that he caught the odd Kelt. Where the other boat is concerned there was no comment on this Anglers performance, you can say this angler failed in all departments. Now for wind, there was light SW wind and overcast. Amount of rainfall yesterday was 6.1 mm.

Tuesday, March 7, 2017

7/3/17

7/3/17 There were five boats manipulating Lough Currane today with their flies and Lures at the ready, but I can say without any fear of contradiction today’s selection has a lot to be desired. Just for the record, Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com caught 5 Kelts to his boat and all returned safe and sound. Wind SE then veered SW with rain for the majority of the day, amount of rainfall yesterday 8.3mm.

6/3/17 The Only bit of action today was on Dominic’s mobile phone and for  good reason it was his 46th Birthday and going by all accounts the party is in full swing in the back of the Lobster and just for the record that’s not false news!! Now for today’s fishing facts, there were 3 boats out manipulating in a fresh to strong and gusty NW wind with heavy showers and sadly there were no reports of any rod benders. Amount of rainfall yesterday was 3.9mm.  

Sunday, March 5, 2017

5/3/17

5/3/17 On today’s notes there will be no sarcasm and we will stick to the facts and they are as follows, anglers were left stranded on the shoreline and for good reason, Kerry was on a yellow alert and was it wild, with a strong wind and violent gusts from NW as it battered Lough Currane and in the words of local gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com No News No Boats and plenty of wind from the NW as usual. That’s your ration this day. Amount of rainfall yesterday 5.3 mm.                          

Saturday, March 4, 2017

4/3/17

4/3/17 Lough Currane Anglers took another rest day in the angling and boatmanship department and who could blame them! You take this morning there was a strong and gusty North wind blowing and when I say strong I mean strong, in fact some of the gusts were dam dangerous! but come afternoon the wind dropped and you could say my fellow anglers dropped out of the race as the Wild Atlantic Salmon gave we the Anglers a Winston Churchill. Amount of rainfall yesterday was 30.2mm.  

Friday, March 3, 2017

3/3/17

3/3/17 There were 3 boats out on the Waters of Lough Currane today, anglers hammered the North Shore out to the Grassy and into the Mouth of the Commeragh and back down to the Morgan’s Rock and what did they get for their hard efforts, absolutely nothing and they call themselves professionals!! I agree they are in the bars! as they try to convince themselves that they are better than what they actually are and if I’m wrong prove it, I would be delighted to eat humble pie! So who will stand and deliver or I should say catch and deliver! Wind North light and overcast with heavy rain at times. Amount of rainfall yesterday 13.5 mm

1/3/17

1/3/17 The pen is mightier than the sword, but in this case the wild Atlantic Salmon is mightier than the angler again yes you have it fellow readers, those so called professionals failed miserably in their duties, that may well be true said one Gillie, you must take into consideration it turned out to be a wild and windy day and talking of the wind and weather, calm this morning but come afternoon there was a wild gale force NW wind with wintery heavy down pours. Amount of rainfall for February 138.7 mm.  Just to let you know the Inny Brown Tag Lottery took Place at the Sea Lodge Hotel this evening just after six o’clock. The next draw will be on June 1st, 8 tags will be issued,
