20/4/18 Lough Currane was all quiet on the SW front and to be fair to the Currane Anglers Lough Currane is still on the rise and talking of the big flood, Local Gillie Mr. Terence Wharton Jnr. Was telling me while holding the boat for his client in the Mouth of Commeragh yesterday, you could see current going all the way up to the Grey Rock and with 42.2mm of rainfall that’s not surprising. As there was no artistry in the angling department today, we will head for a bit of superb artistry with Vincent Donnelly and his brush and you can decide and just click. Wind West light to fresh and bright sunshine with cloud cover at times. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 14.8c.

18/4/18 Another Wild day on Lough Currane with a strong SE wind blowing with heavy showers, but this didn’t deter Kenmare Angler Mr. Dick Elder, catching a fine 9 lbs. Salmon on the fly and his gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com was telling that it was especially made by Dick. Just for the record because of the wild conditions there were only one or two boats out manipulating. Wind as already stated. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 0.2mm.

great catch
Wild Atlantic Salmon 
17/4/18 Another Wild day on Lough Currane with strong SSW blowing, which kept the North Shore Anglers in dry dock, so on that note we head over to the South side and for good reason, Dutch Angler.

16/4/18

16/4/18 All Wild Atlantic Salmon stations on Lough Currane were at a standstill as the weather takes hold, anglers could only watch the wild SSW wind blowing across Lough Currane and that sums up today’s manipulations or lack of, I should say.

15/4/18

15/4/18 This weeks angling ends on a stormy note with a strong wind from the SW so as you can imagine the majority of anglers called it a day even though the day hadn’t even started, but as I say that the Lough Currane detective agency did report one boat did head out down the South side but to no avail.

14/4/18

14/4/18 Lough Currane was all quiet on all fronts and that’s not surprising with a Southerly gale blowing across Lough Currane and if the odd boat did get out, their lines were slack.  Now for the rest of today’s forecast, over cast and signs that there’s more heavy rain on the way?

10/4/18 A very cold NE wind takes control over My Noble fly anglers, because they were anticipating a change of wind, but sadly this wasn’t the case, all the fly anglers caught  by the end of the day was a touch of rawhide and the same goes for the lure manipulators.

Lough Currane,

Big Flood on the
River Inny
6/4/18 Strong winds and heavy showers were the order of the day, first the wind was South then veered SW and  with all the elements against my Noble Anglers this didn’t  deter them heading out to the South side where one could get a bit of shelter but with all their efforts they couldn’t register a Wild Atlantic Salmon, but to be fair there was an almighty flood this morning and you can say without any fear of contradiction the elements were against them and in my opinion they did well to get out there and as you can see by the photos of the flood coming down the Inny, it gives you a fair idea how big the flood was. Yesterdays weather 16.8mm. Maximum air temperature 10.9.

4/4/18 Lough Currane was all quiet on the SW Front and with a fresh Northeast wind blowing. So its not that surprising that their lines were slack, but as Hands once said to a Gillie many years ago, East wind very good for fishing and the Gillie replied I’m a Gillie and I’m Telling you East wind no good for Fishing, well, Gillie or no Gillie I  have 18 lbs. Salmon in one hand  and 8 lbs. Salmon in the other hand and what do you say to that, ahh East wind very good, so the moral to the  story is East wind or not you can catch the old Gentlemen if you’re out there.
