 31/3/19 The Currane anglers had another tough day, especially the Currane fly anglers as they had to wait for the calm wind to change from the East, it wasn’t until the afternoon when it changed from East to the West, but sadly the Currane wild Atlantic Salmon wouldn’t Rise this Mothers Day and the same goes for Currane trollers. Weather as already stated. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 11.2 c.

28/3/19 Currane anglers were calm and collective this day, so calm in fact by the end of their day they were reflecting their lack of action and by late evening they were also reflecting why they didn’t do what Cork Angler, Mr. Jack Murphy and his Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com did and for good reason, thy caught a fine 9 lbs. Salmon while trolling on the evening shift. Weather calm and bright sunshine all day. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 12.1 c.

flat
Brod and Robert !
26/3/19 Either it’s too wild or as in today’s case too bright and too calm for the Currane fly anglers and that’s sums up today’s slack but bright manipulations. Now to all you doubting Thomas’s, we go back to 23rd for good reason because as I reported that Local Angler Mr Robert Elson of the of www.thecrescentwaterville.ie caught a fine 9 lbs Salmon, well the truth of the Salmon is in the photographic evidence, you doubting Thomas’s! So it’s all apologies to www.thecrescentwaterville.ie for the delay but beyond my control. Wind West light and bright sunshine all day. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature

23/3/19 The Currane fly anglers had a tough time of it today and for good reason, the wind was light and variable and to be fair to the Currane fly anglers, their not like Maradona, they haven’t got the hand of God and as I say that, Mr. Robert Elson of  www.thecrescentwaterville.ie would beg to differ and for good reason, while trolling with his good friend local Angler Mr. Brod O’Sullivan they caught a fine 9 lbs.

Dominic holds his 12 lbs. Salmon! 
Paul's 12 1/2 lbs. Salmon 
6/3/19 There’s two sides to every story and today was a perfect example as the Currane anglers put their skills to the test. We start on North side as the 48 Bells rang out for Local Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy as he set out for a spot of fly fishing and hoping he would catch the first Salmon on the fly on his 48th birthday, well his birthday wish was granted with a cracker of a 12 lbs. Salmon, so congratulations on the first Salmon caught on the fly in 2019 and Many Happy Returns from all the Currane Anglers and all the good people of Waterville. As Dominic left the Lake he said, so let the celebrations begin with a few pints in the Lobster Bar  and by all accounts the Beer is flowing faster than the Commeragh River. Now we head over to the South side, Currane Angler Mr. Paul Hyland of Caherdaniel, was in cracking form, and Paul tells his own story in his words. Took this great 12 ½ lbs. Salmon on the troll on the South side of the lake in a big wave. I had a mighty fight and  it took me an hour to get it in the boat. It's not easy when your on your own in those conditions and I will say there is no argument to that. Wind NNW fresh to strong with heavy showers all day. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 15.4 mm. Maximum air temperature 10. 3 c.
