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.
