Robert and Brod
7/3/18 Lough Currane was on fire late this morning, so straight to the Salmon firing line, first to take the  honours was Local Gillie Mr. Eric Jouen of Waterville Boats and at while trolling caught a fine 7lbs.Salmon and there’s more to this Salmon and you can believe it or not, when Eric netted his fine fish there was a big Stoats tail fly stuck in its mouth and considering Eric caught it on a Rapala, the jury is debating who lost a Salmon on the fly, all I know is what Eric would say, No Wooden spoon for me! So on that note we head for fish of the day and that goes to Local angler Mr. Robert Elson of who caught a fine 9 lbs. Salmon on the troll, while fishing with his good friend and Local angler Mr. Brod O’Sullivan.

Anglers frozen out!
Inny Ice
Ice on the ring
1/3/18 Anglers decline the battle of the freezing conditions this day and who could blame them with the temperature at minus 1 down by the Lake and if one takes into account wind chill, it felt like minus 8 and as you can see by the photo there was ice on the shoreline and parts of the Inny was also frozen as you can see again by the photo. So on this Red warning day we will give the anglers the thumbs up on their decline to catch a wild Atlantic Salmon. Staying with the weather, snow started to fall in Caherdaniel 7.45 pm this evening.
