Butler Pool !
Butler Pool !

30/6/18 The Lough Currane anglers are getting over heated as the heat wave takes control, now we look at the fishes point of view, as the  Currane fish look up from the bottom, if to say you should be down here with us and you would know what it is like with the lack oxygen, at least you anglers drink your water to stop dehydration so you know what you can do with your flies and lours. Wind W light and very warm and in the shade about 26c ? taken with an old thermometer, with hazy sunshine. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 25.4c. On that note I will leave you with a few photo of fly anglers trying their luck on the World famous Butler Pool and at www.watervillegolflinks.ie

9/6/18 The Lough Currane anglers are digging into their low water fly boxes and sadly today they failed but not miserably and the same goes for the Currane Lure men, and you don’t have to be a meteorological scientist to know that the Currane Anglers are in badly need of Water as they headed for nearest watering hole this evening after their good sun tanning today.

7/6/18

7/6/18 Heat waves still in control of the Waterville Fishery which isn’t surprising with the sun blazing down on Currane and very thundery at times so its not surprising that the Currane Anglers are spending more money on suntan lotion and bottles of water than they are on flies and lours. Wind W light and very warm. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 17.8c.     

Wednesday, June 6, 2018

Mariet and William RIP
5/6/18 Lough Currane is mourning this day and for good reason and its with great sadness that I have to tell you that renowned Salmon and Sea Trout Angler, Mr. William Timmermans, RIP, of Waterville and Holland sadly past away yesterday. On Behalf of all the Waterville Fishery and all the good people of Waterville and Glencar and all of Co. Kerry I would like to send our Sincere Sympathies to his good Wife, Mrs. Mariet Timmermans and all their Family and friends. Well William you may be gone and you certainly won’t be forgotten and for good reason, you fished the Waterville Fishery for well over fifty years and I believe William caught his first Salmon on the troll going by the Holly Island and in that fifty years plus of fishing the Waterville Fishery, William caught a good many more and on that note I will say, William RIP.
