30/9/19

30/9/19 Well the last day of the 2019 Salmon Season was a wash out and I mean a washout with torrential rain up until 2 pm plus a strong wind from the SW the Currane Anglers were redundant until the clearance came just after 2 pm and sadly come this evening my mobile was as redundant as the Currane Anglers. Where the Waterville River systems were concerned no reports of any action. Now we go to backdate department and the hired out boat department of www.lakelandshouse.com on the 28th of September, Currane Fly Angler Mr. Colin Bateman, caught a cracker of a 11 ½ lbs. Salmon on the drift. On that note we head into October and 12 days of Sea Trout reporting and I would appreciate it if you the Currane Fly Anglers of Ireland and the World if you could take some photos if possible and either text me on 0872074882 or email me at salmonandseatrout@gmail.com Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 15. 9 c.

Lough Currane this afternoon! 
29/9/19 The Waterville Fishery was all quiet on all fronts, be it Pool or Inny and my phone was as quiet as the Currane Anglers, as for the weather there was a light NNW with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 26.0 mm. Maximum air temperature 14.5 c. As we all know tomorrow is the last day of the Salmon Season so tight lines to all the Salmon anglers of Ireland.

 Caught on the fly! 
28/9/19 The Waterville Fishery was all quiet on all fishing stations, just for the record there were Anglers on the Butler Pool but no reports of any action and the same goes for the River Inny and of course the great Lough Currane. Now for some late News on a cracker of a specimen Sea Trout caught on Lough Currane on 24th.  It was brought to my notice by a  regular Currane fly Angler yesterday on the net, so its over to Roy and I quote, Local Gillie, Bob Priestley with his catch of a lifetime on Lough Currane last Tuesday. The sea-trout weighed 10 lb 3
oz.  Congrats, what a great way to end the season! I’ll second that. Wind SE fresh and overcast and late this afternoon and just for the record there is a yellow warning for Munster until 7 am tomorrow. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 12.0 mm. Maximum air temperature 15. 7 c.

26/9/19

26/9/19 The Currane Fly Anglers were left stranded on all shore lines as the weather took control with a strong SW blowing followed by rain at times, so as you can imagine they turned their backs on the lake and headed for the Inny to try to beat Khem and John’s   fine 10 Salmon haul yesterday and as of yet it still stands today going by the phone. Just for the record I failed to report that Khem and John’s biggest  Salmon yesterday was in the 10 lbs class and I can tell you their Gillie of www.lakelandshouse.com wasn’t amused ! Wind SW strong and overcast. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall, 6.6 mm. Maximum air temperature 16.5 c.

Khem 
John
25/9/19 Currane Anglers today were all quiet on all fronts but the same couldn’t be said for www.lakelandshouse.com hired out boat department, Mr. David Delap was well satisfied with today’s Trout fishing and rose plenty trout all day, they may have taken short but at least there was some great action. Now for catch of the day on the River Inny. Currane / Inny Fly UK fly Angler, Mr Khem Joory and Currane / Inny Fly Angler, Mr John Johnson, caught 10 Salmon on the river Inny today and as you can see by the photos of their C&R Salmon they were delighted with their fly fishing and on a personal note its great see Khem back on the Waterville fishery manipulating his flies and I can say without any fear of contradiction in the fly department he’s as good with his right hand as he is with his left. Just for the record their Gillie Mr. Frank Donnelly of www.lakelandshouse.com reported to me that in his hired out boat department, Currane / Inny Fly Angler, Mr John Johnson has caught 33 Sea Trout and same goes for the Brown on the drift, you could say approximately 66 Trout on the drift.

23/9/19

23/9/19 Again the Currane Fly Anglers headed out on to a wild Lough Currane, but this didn’t deter the Bungalow Salmon and Sea Trout station from heading out before the Waters dictated the anglers proceedings, they are as follows, In the words of Local Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea and I quote only two hours, my clients Currane Fly Anglers Bob and Romy  from Luxembourg fishing out www.lakelandshouse.com caught 1 Junior and called it a day. Staying at the Bungalow, UK Currane fly Anglers fishing with their Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com caught 3 Trout and considering there was a flood yesterday and today and strong winds today from the SE then Veered SW in the afternoon they did well and for the rest of the Currane Fly Anglers, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know they headed for the Inny. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 16.5 c.
