30/7/19 The Lough Currane Anglers rods and reels were all quiet in all departments, which isn’t surprising with the wind in the NE and that flood we got will be soon gone down into the Wild Atlantic and not the Currane Anglers way, if you get my drift!

27/7/19 The Currane Anglers were all quiet on all fronts and to be fair it takes a few days for the Big Lake to settle down after a big flood.

22/7/19

22/7/19 Again Lough Currane was on the wild side but fair play to the Currane Anglers they ventured out on the low waters of Currane even though the waves were high but as the day progressed it was the Currane Anglers blood pressure that was high for the lack of action and that sums up today’s manipulations. Wind SW fresh to strong and overcast and humid. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 18.7 c.

15/7/19

15/7/19 You can say without any fear of contradiction that Currane Anglers enthusiasm is at an all time low and for good reason, the Currane water level is on the low side, so a good drop of rain would boost the water levels as well as the Currane Anglers enthusiasm. Now to the Apology department and for good reason, it was brought to my attention and I was advised by renowned Currane fly Angler Mr. Gary Humphrey of the UK, that I should check my notes before going to press, I asked Gary why, because you failed miserably in your duties in spelling one’s Christian name and sir name, so I checked my notes and sadly I’m guilty as charged, so sorry for that Gary, so Specsavers here we come.
