28/2/19

28/2/19 All the Currane anglers were all quiet on the SW front this day, after yesterdays excitement and that raps up Februarys manipulations. It may have been slack in action but to be fair to the Currane Anglers the weather had a big say and dictated proceedings this Month. On an optimistic note and to all those who are pessimistic, one might think that the Currane anglers were very slack and down on last year, well we are 1 Salmon down on 2018 if my calculations are correct and if you take into account the amount of days lost due the Wild Atlantic Waves or in our case the Currane waves its not too bad and yes it always could be better, so lets stay optimistic!!

Dominic 
Steven!
27/2/19 There was some great action for the Currane anglers today so straight to the action. In the trolling department, first to hit the Salmon headlines as we all know was Local Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy and at www.fishingwithdom.com caught a fine 10 lbs. Salmon on the troll and my fish of the day goes to Cahersiveen angler Mr. Steven Donnelly and for good reason, while trolling with his good friend Mike. Steven caught his first ever Spring Salmon weighing in at 10 ½ lbs and may it be the first of many Springer’s. Wind SE  and bright and sunny. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 17.2 c     
27/2/19 Great News Local gillie Mr..Dominic McGillicuddy,  caught a fine Salmon on the troll early this afternoon. Will give all the facts of the day this evening.

25/2/19 The Currane Anglers made their Frustrations quite clear this morning as the weather was their topic of conversation and not flies and lures as it should be and for good reason, there was a strong SE wind blowing across Lough Currane so strong in fact they called it a day within minutes of getting out of their vehicles, even though the sun was shining. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall  0.2 mm. Maximum air temperature 13. 2 c.     

Sunday, February 24, 2019

24/2/19 Lough Currane was wild again with a strong SE wind cutting across the lake, wind or no wind it didn't deter Local Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com  and his cleint heading out and on that note I will let Dominic tell his side of the story on today's facts.  Out all day fly fishing but we had the wrong flies on all day, very rough southeast.

  5.5mm. Maximum air temperature 14.0 c.

20/2/19

Those were the days my Friends !
20/2/19 Big Flood or no flood the Currane anglers headed out in good anticipation of catching a Currane Wild Atlantic Salmon, be it on the troll or the almighty fly and I will put it as a quote from renowned local Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com out all day, no good, but there is an old saying everything comes to those who wait! Now we head for the Salmon and Sea Trout Licence and for good reason, I hear anglers complaining of the price, well today I came across my Fathers 1966 All districts Salmon and Sea Trout Licence which cost £4 and if you relate this to today’s prices you would be surprised and here are the calculations, £4 in 1966 at today’s value is  £73.90  and just for the record in 1966 the Irish pound was equal to the English pound!! Wind SW Fresh and overcast and wet in the afternoon. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 26. 3. Maximum air temperature 11. 3 c.

19/2/19

19/2/19 No anglers to be seen this day as the wild winds from the SW take control of Lough Currane and to top it all the rain lashed down and it wasn’t long before there was a big flood coming down the Commeragh. On a personal note, even though conditions have been Kat in the past few days I can tell you once the Lake settles down after today’s big flood, fly anglers should make sure their fly lines are in order or if you are old-fashioned, well greased so that you can take that first Salmon on the fly. Yesterdays weather amount of rainfall 2.7 mm. Maximum air temperature 10.3 c.

18/2/19

18/2/19 Well for starters the Currane anglers did get out manipulating their flies and lures and putting their skill to the test this day, but with all their efforts and my words of wisdom weren’t brought out in practice, but in defence of myself and Currane anglers Lough Currane had a good wind hammering in the past week. All I can say is Thank God we anglers have good genuine excuses. Wind SW fresh good cloud cover with showers. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 6.2 mm. Maximum air temperature 11.1

17.2/19

17/2/19 I’ve been told many times over the years that my notes are full of wind, well this week is no exception and again today the Currane anglers were put into checkmate as a strong and gusty wind hammers the North Shore and all the Currane anglers could do was stand there in frustration and reminisce on days gone past and that sums up this weeks action but sadly only a fraction of fishing was done. Wind strong SW and overcast with heavy showers. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 13.0 mm, Maximum air temperature 11.1 c.

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!
14/2/19 The Currane anglers were at a standstill as all Salmon stations were closed, thanks to a strong SSE wind as it took control over the Currane waters.

Wind as already stated, yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 11.3 c.

13/2/19 You’ve heard of the lonesome Cowboy, well today local Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy and of www.fishingwithdom.com was complaining he felt like the lonesome Currane Angler fishing out on his own on the Currane prairie in a wild SW wind, as the Currane waves crashed into his bow, Dominic’s reels were silent except for a few interruptions of the odd Kelt taking, or to be more precise 3 strikes! Wind as already stated and overcast. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 5.9. mm. Maximum air temperature 11.8 c.

11/2/19

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.

6/2/19

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. 

Tuesday, February 5, 2019

5/2/19

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 www.fishingwithdom.com 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

Sunday, February 3, 2019

3/2/19

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.

2/2/19

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.

1/2/19 At last the Lough Currane code is broken and yes you have it, Local Angler Mr. Michael O’Dwyer caught a cracker of 10 lbs. Salmon on the troll and in his own words in a text message, got him! So congratulations to Mike in breaking the Currane code and on that note Mike said lets head for the Waterville Inn and collect the Paddy Carey Memorial Cup and I can tell you the Landlord of the Waterville Inn Mr. Damian Duff was ready and waiting to present the Cup to Mike and the party is in full swing by now!! 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.
