Carlos
Born Free
31/7/17 Mr. Carlos Gutierrez from Columbia was the toast of the Lough Currane C&R Salmon department today and for good reason, Carlos finished this last day of July with a bang and a cracker of a 18 ¼ lbs. Salmon caught on the troll and by all accounts Carlos had a good battle with his mighty 18 ¼ lbs. Salmon and his Father finished their day off with a fine C&R 3 lbs. Grilse and I can say without any fear of contradiction today’s anglers from Columbia and their Gillie Mr. Neil O‘Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com went above and beyond their call of duty and did it in style and I can understand why, they call The Bungalow The Home of the Waterville Fishery.

30/7/17 Going by the Lough Currane post and telegraphs department there were just three boats out this day on Lough Currane and my Noble anglers were  manipulating the flie department and the trolling department and all three boats came up with the same common denominator and the same words of wisdom at their end of their day, their common denominator was the big 0 and yes their words of wisdom and I quote, Vincent is right again, we did fail miserably in our duties in all departments and even the good Doctor couldn’t find the cure! Even tough you might think I’m coming out with manure! But it’s still No Spin No Fly’s just Facts. Wind West fresh with good cloud cover with showers.

 Mark               
Sorry for the delay and I forgot to cut across the Lake to the North Shore and the Bungalow and the Sea Trout fly department. German caught two fine Sea trout both in the 2 ½ lbs. class, while fishing with his gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com

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.

19/7/17 Straight to the apology department and for good reason, in yesterdays notes I got my facts wrong and the Co. Monaghan angler I can tell you he wasn’t amused and the reason why was because I forgot to mention the good anglers name, well lets put the record straight, Master Danny McQuaid caught and released two fine Trout on the fly, while fishing with is Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com and just for the record this isn’t double accountancy its an apology to 14 year old Danny McQuaid the Co Monaghan angler.

Monaghan angler while fly fishing caught two Trout on the drift, while fishing with his Gillie Mr Neil O'Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com

18/7/17 All the Currane fly lines were slack in the Salmon and Sea Trout department and the same goes for My Noble Lure anglers or you could say their lures were redundant as all the anglers were this day on the Waterville Fishery and if there were few catches you can say they failed in all departments.

Three sad and merry Anglers 
16/7/17 Lough Currane anglers today spent more time putting suntan lotion on their faces than changing their fly lines from floating to intermediate or visa versa and the same could be said in their fly selection and you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know why my Noble anglers had a good excuse for not performing up to their usual standard but at least one angler did feel his fly line taut and hear his fly reel sing and that was UK angler, Mr. Keith Francis, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com caught and released a fine Sea Trout. Now for some breaking news to all you anglers who like a liquid libation after your day’s manipulations on the Waterville Fishery, there is good news for you, because Curran’s  Supermarket have just opened their new off license in the past few days so come on down and weigh your specimen Sea Trout and have a can, as you can see by the photo these three sad anglers discussing the pros and cons of their days manipulaions and the only thing they could agree on was they were well contented with their time in the off license but the same couldn’t be said for their fishing, cheers!

Wild Atlantic Salmon 
14/7/17 My Noble anglers failed N. E. S. and W in all departments, be it the magnificent fly manipulators or the magnificent lure artists, all I can say is these magnificent anglers skills have a lot to be desired in all departments. I can just see the Lough Currane Specimen Sea Trout and the wild Atlantic Salmon looking up to the skies as they meet at the Ledge Bar and saying it’s all the ones that got away today and they call themselves anglers! As I finish today’s manipulations I have to eat humble pie because I have just received a photo of a Salmon caught on the fly this evening by UK  angler Mr. Mike Fish, Mike also caught a few Nice C&R Tout and as the Parson said to the Vicar, that’s one.

Now today’s action, all the Sea Trout action comes from the Bungalow, Welsh angler, Mr. Meurig Parsons, caught and released two fine Sea Trout on the drift, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com and for the rest of the fly fishing community they failed miserably in their duties and if they did manipulate the odd Salmon or a fine Sea Trout, they certainly did fail for not letting their fingers do the talking at the end of their day.

11/7/17 Update

Andy
11/7/17 Lough Currane was calm cool and collective, or put it this way, calm with a light wind from all directions with reasonable cloud cover, so in in my opinion all fly anglers are exonerated if they failed to produce a Lough Currane specimen Sea Trout. On the collective Salmon side, Mr. Andy Price caught a fine 5 lbs. Grilse on the troll, while fishing with his gillie Mr. Bob Priestley.

My Noble Salmon anglers were on the same wavelength as the majority of the Sea Trout anglers ie a negative flie or lure but at least some anglers had a positive outcome. Wind west light with good cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 1.4mm. Maximum air temperature 16.3c.

Now to catch of the day and that accolade goes to Mr. Alan Cassidy and for good reason, Alan caught his first ever Salmon Grilse on Lough Currane this morning, so congratulations and may it be first of many and as every Game angler knows nothing like your first Salmon and believe it or not I can’t remember mine and why do you ask yourself ?

Now we head for the North Shore and the Bungalow and the fly department, Dublin angler Mr. Enrico Fantasia caught and released 3 Trout, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com and considering the light wind conditions they did well in the fly department as you can see by Tim’s photo and for the rest of the fishing armada, they failed miserably in their duties but at least they had a good excuse.

Gillie Tom O'Shea
7/7/17 UK angler Judge David Burton takes all the fly and Sea Trout headlines on Lough Currane today and finished his fishing trip with a fine C&R 3 lbs. Sea Trout and his Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com takes the limelight but I will let you be the Judge of that! Now we head upstream to the higher lakes and Lough Derriana and Waterville’s top specimen Sea Trout hunter Mr. Jim Sayers, who I might add, kept his reputation and the Waterville Fishery as the anglers number one destination for the mighty Specimen Sea Trout and why do I say this, well today Jim caught a cracker of a 6. 68 lbs. specimen Sea Trout, caught on the fly and Jim’s specimen flie is the Bibio.

Where’s the rest of Waterville anglers are concerned their aspirations were high this morning as my Noble anglers headed out on Waterville’s premier Salmon and  Sea Trout Lake, as the hours past their aspirations turned to commiserations and for good reasons, my Noble Anglers had to admit that their flie and lure selection had a lot to be desired and as the anglers headed for the bars to talk about their failures and downing their sorrows with whiskey and beer, my Noble Salmon and Sea Trout were jumping for joy and celebrating the anglers failures in producing a Wild Atlantic Salmon or a Lough Currane Sea Trout. That’s the Verdict of the Judge and the Gillie on today’s manipulations! Wind W light to calm with good cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 0.4mm.

Now to the apology department and for good reason and I can tell you that local Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com gave me a right diplomatic thrashing for not mentioning that all the catches yesterday out of the Bungalow were catch and release and Dublin angler Mr. Enrico and  Kenmare angler Mr. Mike Hennessey weren’t amused either and can you blame them and no you can’t and as they say I’m guilty as charged, but the record has been put straight.
