26/8/18 Lough Currane Anglers reels were as silent as the Charlie Chaplin movies and I can assure you the Lough Currane Anglers weren’t laughing, but it was a different story in Waterville where there was plenty of Charlies and good crack as you can see by the photos.

Chaplin knows his lines !
Anglers waiting! 
25/8/18 The Chaplin Festival had a full cast today, but sadly the same couldn’t be said for the Lough Currane anglers, as their lines were slack and as you can see the wild Atlantic Game Fish didn’t perform to their usual standard for the lack of rain and talking of rain as you can see by the photo, Waterville will get a down pour early tomorrow morning. Wind South fresh and bright and sunny but come evening there was good cloud cover.Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 15.3 c.

21/8/18

21/8/18 You can say without any fear of contradiction that the Currane anglers log books were not filled in this day for the lack of action in all departments, but being a optimistic you never know what tomorrow will bring. I will finish today’s notes on sarcasm of the day, I was talking to a renowned gillie this evening and I asked him, any good today, he replied 4! I can tell you I gave him a quick reply, I suppose you followed that up with a hole in one! That sums up today’s action in all departments. Wind SW light and overcast and very humid. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 16.6 c.

20/8/18 The Lough Currane Anglers thirst for Wild Game Fish is as strong as ever, but the Lough Currane Wild game Fish were ignoring all their flies and lures for the lack of oxygen in the low waters of Currane as they stay in deeper waters in anticipation for that allusive flood and I’m sure all anglers would second that. Wind W and veered SW at times with good cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 18 c.

Waterville Lake today!
19/8/18 The flood that never hit the mountains streams and rivers of South Kerry, the Currane anglers were waiting with anticipation with their fly rods at the ready but as dawn broke the Currane Anglers faces dropped with disappointment and by the end of this day this was confirmed, with little to no action reported and I can just hear the Wild Atlantic Salmon saying I told you so. Talking of rainfall yesterday, Valentia recorded 3.9 mm. Maximum air temperature 18.2.c That sums up today's lack of water and action in all departments. Wind WSW light and overcast and misty.

Rainfall Prediction for Waterville on saturday!
17/8/18 Waterville is busy with the bars flooded with tourists as Currane Anglers head out on to a low Currane and hoping for an allusive Wild Atlantic Game Fish, but to be honest we anglers and fish alike are waiting for the upper Lakes and the Commeragh to burst their banks with fresh water as www.met.ie are forecasting a good down pour for over the  weekend and into next week, how much Waterville will get is another story.  Going by today’s lack of action it won’t be a lot, I will be delighted if I’m wrong. Wind light and overcast with misty rain at times. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall for Kerry was 3.1mm. Maximum air temperature 17.2 c

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.

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.

10/8/18 The wind was in the West this day and my Noble  Currane anglers failed to record a Game fish to their name but in defence of the Currane Anglers I  have to confess it's the weather that is making we anglers frustrated as well as the fish for the lack water in the Waterville system.

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.
