15/2/19 Sadly again the Currane anglers were at a standstill as the weather takes all the headlines as strong winds from the South and SW take control of the Currane anglers and waters this day. On an optimistic note, as from tomorrow, as my Father would say, we are into the deadly week of the Salmon and there is no argument to that because you will see some action in all departments !! Weather permitting, so watch this space. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 12.8 c.

Waterville and Kerry has Time for every one!

Wind as already stated and overcast. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 5.9. mm. Maximum air temperature 11.8 c.

11/2/19 All quiet on the SW front and talking of the SW that’s exactly where the wind was coming from, plus there was reasonable cloud cover, but sadly the Currane anglers didn’t stimulate their flies or lures enough to procure a Wild Atlantic Salmon, bur remember Currane anglers especially fly Anglers its coming up to the middle of the month so keep on line or even better catch a Wild Lough Currane on a fly line. Weather as already stated, yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 4. 5 mm. Maximum air temperature 8.6 mm.

All Welcome 
6/2/19 Again its all strong wind from the SW, admittedly one boat did venture out and by all accounts the Currane angler recorded a blank log book! Now on a serious note and to all you Currane anglers you should take note and for good reason. Why because the Waterville Community First Responders are having a Family open Day on CPR and all Currane anglers should come because it could be your friend or you one day, so if asked what did you catch today ? I caught noting, but thank God I learnt CPR because I Saved a Life! Today’s weather as already stated. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 17.1 mm. Maximum air temperature 12.1 c.

5/2/19 Again the weather takes all the headlines as a strong SW wind  hits Lough Currane and followed with heavy rain, so as you can imagine all the Currane anglers could do was look at the waves hitting the shoreline, come afternoon the wind dropped. One Currane angler did head out and that was the one and only Local Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy and of and Dominic reported that he caught 3 Kelts on the troll and that raps up today’s action, but just one point of order there was a good flood today, so to all you Salmon fly anglers take note and let the battle commence in the premier league of Currane fly Anglers. Today’s weather as already stated. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 0.0 maximum air temperature 10.6 mm

3/2/19 The weather takes all the headlines as a strong SW wind makes the Currane anglers redundant and in the words of one Gillie it’s a day for the high stool and reminisce and what could have been! On that note that raps up this weeks action when the Currane ice was broken and now it’s the battle of the first Salmon caught on the fly. Wind as already stated and overcast with rain in the late afternoon, yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 2.2 mm, maximum air temperature 7.3 c.

The cards are on the table at the Waterville Inn
2/2/19 Going by today’s performances by the Currane Anglers they were still celebrating the first Salmon of 2019 and the reason I come to this conclusion is because local angler Mr. Mike O’Dwyer went playing Cards last night and by all accounts he wouldn’t lay his cards on the table on what lure he caught his Salmon on, even as the beer flowed at the Waterville Inn, all I can say is Mr. Paddy Carey R.I.P would have been disappointed with today’s performance but delighted with the celebrations and I can say Paddy was some Gillie in all departments of Salmon and Sea Trout fishing and that’s why we have this great cup in memory on this great Gillie!! Wind NNE light and variable with reasonable cloud cover with showers. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 4.8 c.

Weather, bright sunshine all day and a light NE wind. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 21.5 mm. Maximum air temperature 6.3 c, min air temperature 2. 6 c.
