15/8/18 Lough Currane was all quiet on the SW front and at these Water levels that’s not surprising and staying in the water level department, it did make a small amount of rain early this morning going by the Finglas River, so it will be interesting will it have any effect, if any on the Wild Butler Pool or Lough Currane Game Fish. Wind SW fresh and overcast with misty rain. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 17.6.

12/8/18 Nice Fishing conditions first thing this morning after a small bit of rain yesterday, but come midday the clouds vanished and the sun blazed down on the Currane anglers and I can tell you by the end of their day the Currane anglers were well browned off with the lack of action.

11/8/18 The Lough Currane anglers were hoping for some rain today, well you can say at least they got their heads wet with light misty rain throughout the day, sadly the rain was not enough to activate my Noble Wild Atlantic Game fish, so one can say without any fear of contradiction, we can finish today’s notes on a low water, if you get my drift. Talking of low waters,  here is a great video by Mr. Vincent Donnelly,  Paradise! Wind SE and veered SW light to fresh and overcast all day. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 17.1 c

3/8/18 Straight to the backdate department and catch of the week so far, yesterday Australian Angler Mr. John Purey, while fly fishing with his Gillie Mr. Frank Donnelly of caught a fine 7 lbs. Salmon so congratulations on a fine Fish and finished his fly-fishing day off with a fine Sea Trout of 3 ½ lbs. Staying with on the evening shift Frank went out for a few casts and caught himself two Grilse both in the 5 to 6 lbs. class and finished his evening off with two fine Sea Trout ranging from 2 ½ lbs up to 3 ½ lbs. so all in all yesterday wasn’t too bad. Now back to today and Lough Currane anglers thought they were in luck first thing this morning with good cloud cover plus a nice light breeze from the West. Sadly I can tell you it wasn’t long before they were disappointed because come midday it was bright and sunny, at least the Currane anglers battled it out to evening but to no avail and considering Lough Currane is still very low they deserve a medal. Wind as all ready stated, yesterdays weat
