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.

Tim looks up to the heavens
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. Mr. Tim Van Der Laan was in flying form, while trolling with his Gillie Mr. Terence Wharton, caught a cracker of a 10 lbs. Salmon and considering the  wild conditions and mighty big flood last night they did well. Wind as already stated with heavy showers. Yesterdays Weather, amount of rainfall 42. 2mm. Maximum air temperature 11.0c.

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. Wind SSW strong with violent gusts plus heavy rain all day. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 7.9 mm. Maximum air temperature 11. 8c.

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. Wind SW strong with heavy rain at times. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 7.5mm. Maximum air temperature 13.0c

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? Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall  2.0mm. Maximum air temperature 12.5c.

View of Lough Currane today
11/4/18 All quiet on the SW front in all departments and sadly no reports of any rod benders, in defence of anglers especially the fly men and women, there was little to no wind, even though I’m sure there was a few casts presented to the Wild Atlantic Salmon and the world famous Lough Currane specimen Sea Trout.

10/4/18

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. Just for the record there was another flood last night which didn’t help either. Wind as all ready stated. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 15.3mm. Maximum air temperature 10.1c.

fishing and Golf
9/4/18 Sadly my Noble Anglers weren’t in tone with the Wild Atlantic Salmon today on Lough Currane and in the words of  renowned local Gillie Mr. Vincent O’Sullivan, we caught nothing, we rose noting and it was dam cold out there and to top it all I’m soaking wet, well I think that sums up today’s manipulations. Wind SSE then veered E plus there was very good cloud cover with heavy rain. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 9.0mm.

Lough Currane,
7/4/18 Lough Currane was settling down this day after the big flood so it wasn’t surprising that the Currane anglers drew a blank but saying that the Lough Currane binocular man did see one boat lose a reasonably good fish, but losses sadly don’t count. Wind SW light to calm and variable at times, with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 26.8mm. Maximum air temperature 12.3. Anglers please take note and watch this video,

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.

Michael, Bernard, Peter.
Peter, Michael!
Waterville House
5/4/18 Lough Currane anglers headed out this morning hoping to catch My Noble Gentlemen the  Salmon before the yellow weather warning came in and luckily or sadly the  luck was on the side of the Lough Currane Salmon, because come 1.30pm all boats were blown off and two anglers, Mr. Peter Rall and Brother Mr. Bernard Rall of Germany, had their days lake fishing interrupted so headed off down Stream with their Gillie Mr. Michael O’Sullivan of Waterville Boats and at  watervilleboats@gmail.com to the World famous Butler Pool and of www.watervillegolflinks.ie   and I can tell you it wasn’t long Mr. Peter Rall had his fly rod bent double into a fine 9 lbs. Salmon and I can tell you the conditions were terrible but I’m sure Peter and Bernard are well satisfied with their days fishing. Wind SSE fresh to strong and overcast with heavy rain this evening. Yesterdays weather amount of rainfall 0.2mm. Maximum air temperature 9.3c.

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. Wind as already stated with reasonable cloud cover, with light rain this morning, yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 11.9mm. Maximum air temperature 11.4c.
