Ernie 
20/9/18 We start on the Big Lake / Lough Currane, Cahersiveen angler Mr. Steven Donnelly takes all the Sea Trout headlines, while trolling with his Good friend Mike, caught 3 Juniors and for the rest of the Currane anglers it was all quiet on the SW, So now we head for the World famous Butler Pool and at www.watervillegolflinks.ie and to say the Pool exploded would be an understatement and for good reason,  Luxemburg fly Angler, Ernie and his Gillie Mr. Frank Donnelly of  www.lakelandshouse.com  caught nine Salmon and lost just as many and rose a good few more and in the words of Mr. Frank Donnelly, I would say it’s a long time since anybody has seen action like today’s,  all I could say was it reminds me of the sixties on the Butler Pool, electrifying! So congratulations to both anglers. Wind South East and veered E light to calm and very cold and rained for the majority of the day. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 15. 8 c.

Butler Pool Wild Atlantic Salmon 
19/9/18 Storm Ali brought Ireland to a standstill but the same couldn’t be said for Currane South side fly anglers, as they ventured out as Ali was crossing the SW this morning and fair play to them they stuck it out all day and rose a good few for their efforts as reported to me by local Gillie Mr. Frank Donnelly of www.lakelandshouse.com and that sums today’s action and  Storm Ali. Staying with www.lakelandshouse.com yesterday Luxembourg Angler Ernie fishing out of www.lakelandshouse.com caught a fine 5 ½ lbs. Salmon on the fly on the world famous Butler Pool and at www.watervillegolflinks.ie  Wind SW and stormy with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 17.5 c

18/9/18 We start today’s notes with  yesterdays notes and for good reason, I failed miserably in my duties again and yes I’m guilty as charged for failing to check my email and if I had I would seen an email telling me that Dr. Tim Gleason caught a fine 4 lbs. Grilse on the fly on the World Famous Butler Pool and at www.watervillegolflinks.ie again all I can say is my apologises to Tim and his Gillie. Now back to the present and today’s action or I should say lack of action, again today all Salmon Stations were at a standstill with a strong SW blowing across the lake and with Storm Ali to hit Kerry tomorrow you can forget it until late afternoon. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 17.9 c.

17/9/18 Lough Currane was like the wild West as you can imagine Currane anglers were left stranded all day at their Salmon and Sea Trout stations as the waves pounded the North Shore and in the words of one local and I quote, you could see the white horses ¾ of a mile away or put it this way the distance from Mace Supermarket to the Butler Pool. Wind S and strong and overcast with rain in the afternoon and this evening. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 16.9 c.

Currane Angler 5 year old Conor!

So we will begin in the hired out boat department of  www.lakelandshouse.com Killarney Angler Mr. DJ Riordan, While fly-fishing on the drift, caught 15 Sea Trout, ranging from Juniors up to 1 ¾ lbs. Staying with www.lakelandshouse.com hired out boat department, anglers also reported nice catches of Juniors caught on the fly and were well satisfied with their days manipulations. Local Gillie Mr. Frank Donnelly of www.lakelandshouse.com reported that one boat was out there all day, signalled on his way home that he also caught a few Sea trout. Now Catch of the day goes to 5 year old Conor who celebrated his 5th  Birthday today and got his first fishing rod and I can tell you it didn’t take Conor long to ask his Grandad Mr. Frank Donnelly of www.lakelandshouse.com would he take him fishing so he could catch a fish with his brand new fishing rod, well Grandad obliged and by jove Conor christened his new rod in style by catching his first ever Junior and may it be the first of many and by the looks of it a Gillie in the making.

15/9/18 It was a wild day for the Currane anglers, with a strong SW wind blowing down the Lake, so as you can imagiane just the odd boat vetured out from the North Shore, mind you there could have been a few boats that ventured from the South side and if they did, going by my phone it was all quiet on the SW front.

14/9/18 The Currane anglers were drifting with their flies and Gillie’s were holding their clients boat so their flies were hitting the right spot but sadly Lough Currane’s Wild Atlantic Salmon and Sea Trout ignored the temptations of being lured into an almighty battle and the same goes for My Noble Currane trollers. Wind West fresh with reasonable cloud cover with the odd shower, yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 15.9 c.

d that he had to continue casting and catching and missed his lunch but as he said I wasn’t  browned off with a smile. By the end of their day, the Killarney Salmon and Trout anglers caught 50 Brown Trout between them and added a few nice Sea Trout but sadly Sea Trout didn’t count. Their Brown Trout of the day weighed in at 1 ¾ lbs.
