23/6/19 Straight to the hired out boat department of www.lakelandshouse.com Currane C&R fly anglers from Dublin, Mr. Eamon Power and Mr. Dara Touhy, while fly fishing caught a fine Grilse and finished their Trip off with a fine 2 ½ lbs. Sea Trout, but that’s not their end of fishing escapade because in their backdate department they have had some good action considering the Currane Waters are low and even the Bull rock feels naked. So here is their full basket, they caught 5 Sea Trout and their smallest was 2 ½ lbs and biggest Sea Trout was well over 8 lbs and you could say it was the one that got away because this specimen Sea Trout had the last laugh after a great battle and as your man netted this fine specimen Trophy Fish it had one look at the Dublin anglers and one swipe of his tail he looked to the Heavens and jumped out of the net to freedom. I can tell you there were two upset Anglers because they couldn’t take a photo of this Cracker of a Sea Trout and to add salt to the wound the specimen Sea Trout took off with their cast and his last words were, may your flies be with you and as you can see by the photos they caught some good fish. Staying in the backdate department and we cut across the Lake to the North Shore and Waterville Boats and at watervilleboats@gmail.com a regular Currane C&R Angler, be it Salmon or Sea Trout, yesterday caught a fine 4 ½ lbs. Grilse and a fine 1 ½ lbs. Sea Trout. Today’s wind SE fresh and overcast with light rain and heavy at times. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 18.c.
