Tony's 3 1.5 lbs. Sea Trout.

Now we cut across the Lake to the North side and the Bungalow, in the Sea Trout fly department, UK angler, Mr. Mick O’Neill, caught a fine 1 ½ lbs. Sea Trout, caught on the drift, while fishing with his gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com Now to the blooper department and yes you have it, I have done it again, failing to check my email and I can say without any fear of contradiction the angler in question wasn’t amused, so my apologies to Cork angler Mr. Tony Duke for my discrepancies, 3 weeks ago Tony caught a fine 3 ½ lbs. Sea Trout on the fly and as you can see by the photo it’s a cracker of a Sea Trout. I hope this puts the record straight. Wind Light West. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 1.3mm.

19/6/17

some view 
Rudy and Party 
26c and rising 
19/6/17  Lough Currane was like Blazing Saddles and for good reason, the sun was blazing down on the water and what anglers were out, they looked like Phantoms of the opera! One renowned fly angler Mr. Rudy Vey of the U.S.A. and Waterville, took to the saddle and the wild Pony Tracks of Lough Currane and as you can see by his fantastic photos his decision to take to the saddle was correct and in the words of his host Mr. Grant Rogerson of the Ring of Kerry Equestrian Centre, as they made it to the top of the hill looking over Currane, its nearly 26c, on that note you can understand why my Noble anglers failed miserably in their duties. Wind light W. Yesterday weather, maximum air temperature 22.2c.  

The Picture tells the story a satisfactory day!

6/6/17 Lough Currane was on the wild side with a strong and gusty wind from the NW added with heavy down pours, but this didn’t deter a few boats from going out, but all the Salmon headlines go to Dublin Angler Mr. Hugh Brennan, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com caught a 5 lbs.

5/6/17

5/6/17 Lough Currane was on the quiet side after yesterdays brilliant action, but to be honest that’s not surprising with a NE wind blowing and rain pouring down for the best part of the day and it was very cold with a maximum air temperature of 9c but felt like 6c. That ends the excuses for the Lough Currane anglers, so on that note we head upstream and to the Commeragh River and there was one angler manipulating his skill and needs no excuses because the angler in question, Mr Martin Coveny, caught and released a fine 6 lbs. Salmon and two Sea Trout for his efforts, so congratulations to Martin for keeping the Waterville Fishery flag flying high this June Bank holiday Monday. Yesterdays weather. Amount of rainfall 12 mm. Maximum air temperature 14.4c.

Peter
Martin, Dave, Bob.
C&R, Bob, Dave.
4/6/17 All headlines come from the Bungalow, the home of Lough Currane Salmon fishing and for good reason, there was some mighty Grilse fishing today, particularly one boat, but we leave the best to last. First in my striking zone was UK angler Peter Morris from Newcastle, while fishing with his gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com Peter caught a fine Salmon Grilse on the troll. Now to catch of the day, we start in the C&R department, Mr. Dave Holmes was King of the Grilse today, while fishing with his gillie Mr. Bob Priestley, Dave caught 4 fine Salmon Grilse on the troll and sportingly put 1 Grilse back to fight another day. Now staying with the Same boat and Gillie, but a different client, Mr. Martin Coveny, caught a fine Salmon Grilse on the troll and all in all you can say today was a cracker of a day for the clients and the Gillie’s and fair play to them all. Wind SW light to fresh with good cloud and heavy rain this evening. yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 1.8mm. Maximum air temperature 15.0c

3/6/17

3/6/17 Straight to the backdate department and yes I’m guilty as charged for failing miserably in my duties in the No Spin No Fly’s just facts department and for good reason, I forgot to mention in last nights report a fine 8 ½ lbs. Salmon caught on the Commeragh river by Mr. Martin Coveny and apologies again to Martin for failing in my duties and I can just hear the Lough Currane anglers in the bars this evening having a good laugh and saying and he thinks he’s a good reporter! Now today’s action or I should say the lack of it  because this bank Holiday Saturday there were 8 boats out manipulating and I can say without any fear of contradiction they all failed in every department, as majority of anglers would say that’s fishing! Wind W fresh with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 4.4mm. Maximum air temperature 15.8c.    

Friday, June 2, 2017

2/6/17

2/6/17 There were six boats out manipulating and stimulating their flies and lours today on the Big Lake/ Lough Currane, all I can say is their flies and lours have a lot to be desired this day on the Waterville Fishery and why, well its simple because of their inability to catch a wild Atlantic Salmon or catch one of Lough Curran’s majestic specimen Sea Trout, need I say more. Wind West light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 12.1mm. Maximum air temperature 14.7c,
