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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. Wind was all over the place with the odd shower. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 17.4 c.

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.
