Breaking News Fish for
2019
Bob


13/10/19 In last nights report I failed miserably in my duties by not mentioning Fish of the year, yes guilty as charged, so lets put the record straight. Fish of the Year goes to renowned Gillie Mr. Bob Priestly, who caught and released a cracker a of 10 lbs.3 oz Sea Trout on the fly



12/10/19 Well it’s that time of year again as the Currane Anglers take to the Currane waters for their last cast this 2019 season and Cork Currane fly Angler, Mr. Paul Lawton and his party of seven Currane fly Anglers caught a good few Brown Trout and two fine Juniors and for the rest of the Currane fly Anglers it was all quiet. Wind SW light with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 14.3 c. As I said the Currane fly and trolling anglers have finished their lines for this 2019 season and the same goes for me in the reporting department. So I would like finish this 2019 season by thanking all you good people who read the Waterville Fishery report every day, I would also like to thank all the team at www.fisheriesireland.ie and Mr. Paul Burke of the Trout and Salmon magazine and Mr. Tony Gosnell of the Irish Examiner. On that note I look forward to be reporting to you all in 2020 on No Spin No Fly’s just Facts zone. So  Happy Christmas to you all and I hope you all have a great 2020 Season in all departments.

 Caught on the fly! 
28/9/19 The Waterville Fishery was all quiet on all fishing stations, just for the record there were Anglers on the Butler Pool but no reports of any action and the same goes for the River Inny and of course the great Lough Currane. Now for some late News on a cracker of a specimen Sea Trout caught on Lough Currane on 24th.  It was brought to my notice by a  regular Currane fly Angler yesterday on the net, so its over to Roy and I quote, Local Gillie, Bob Priestley with his catch of a lifetime on Lough Currane last Tuesday.

oz.  Congrats, what a great way to end the season! I’ll second that. Wind SE fresh and overcast and late this afternoon and just for the record there is a yellow warning for Munster until 7 am tomorrow. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 12.0 mm. Maximum air temperature 15. 7 c.

26/9/19 The Currane Fly Anglers were left stranded on all shore lines as the weather took control with a strong SW blowing followed by rain at times, so as you can imagine they turned their backs on the lake and headed for the Inny to try to beat Khem and John’s   fine 10 Salmon haul yesterday and as of yet it still stands today going by the phone. Just for the record I failed to report that Khem and John’s biggest  Salmon yesterday was in the 10 lbs class and I can tell you their Gillie of www.lakelandshouse.com wasn’t amused ! Wind SW strong and overcast. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall, 6.6 mm. Maximum air temperature 16.5 c.

Currane / Inny Fly UK fly Angler, Mr Khem Joory and Currane / Inny Fly Angler, Mr John Johnson, caught 10 Salmon on the river Inny today and as you can see by the photos of their C&R Salmon they were delighted with their fly fishing and on a personal note its great see Khem back on the Waterville fishery manipulating his flies and I can say without any fear of contradiction in the fly department he’s as good with his right hand as he is with his left. Just for the record their Gillie Mr. Frank Donnelly of www.lakelandshouse.com reported to me that in his hired out boat department, Currane / Inny Fly Angler, Mr John Johnson has caught 33 Sea Trout and same goes for the Brown on the drift, you could say approximately 66 Trout on the drift.

Staying at the Bungalow, UK Currane fly Anglers fishing with their Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com caught 3 Trout and considering there was a flood yesterday and today and strong winds today from the SE then Veered SW in the afternoon they did well and for the rest of the Currane Fly Anglers, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know they headed for the Inny.

Mrs. R J Appleby
1965
5/8/19 There was a nice flood on the Inny yesterday, so you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know where the majority of the Currane Anglers were today ?

4/7/19 Bright sunshine was the order of the day and the wind was all over the place, so you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know all the odds were against the Currane Anglers from procuring a Salmon, well think again because local Currane Gillie Mr. Bob Priestley defied the odds and caught and released a fine 4 lbs. Grilse while trolling between Major’s point and the Sound. Just for the record it was brought to my attention this evening that a fine Salmon was caught in the past few days.
