Jonathan and George !
2/5/19 We start at the Bungalow and the North Shore and in the trolling department, Mr. Jonathan MacLean and Mr. George MacLean, caught a fine 9 lbs. Salmon while fishing with their Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com and last but not least a guest fishing with his Gillie also caught a Salmon. Now we head for the late News department, its been brought to my attention that I have been failing miserably in my reporting duties because I failed to report 3 Salmon caught in the last 10 days. In my defence if anglers wish to remain anonymous that is their privilege, but saying that in my opinion their letting down the Waterville Fishery and in the words of President Trump! The rumours saying I’m failing in reporting anglers catches is False News.

Axil 


26/4/20 Storm Hannah thankfully didn't take control of the Currane anglers this morning as they headed out and hoping for some action and they weren't disappointed. So we start at the Bungalow and at www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com Mr. Niall Howe and fishing out of www.curranelodge.ie while fishing with his gillie caught an 8 lbs. Salmon on the troll as  Hannah gets stronger , but we will stay with Hannah and the trolling department and the Bungalow, Currane Angler Mr. Axil ZurBrugge and fishing out of www.butlerarms.com caught a cracker of an  11 lbs. Salmon on the troll , while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O'Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com and staying with Neil, People have been wondering why he’s down on the Salmon front? well Neil has been out for three months with a shoulder injury but as you can see he's back with a bang and you could say three days fishing, two Salmon, at this rate lads he will be catching and overtaking and taking the lead on the Wild Atlantic Salmon count . Back to Hannah come lunch time Hannah won the day and Kerry is on a Red alert, will give you all the facts on Red alert in tomorrow's notes.
