16/9/20

 

16/9/20 The Currane drifters had a hard day of it and for good reason, there was little wind to talk off, plus it was very humid at 91% followed by bright sunshine at times. So, one can say without any fear of contradiction, the Currane fly anglers are completely exonerated this day, need I say more! Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 20.1 centigrade.

13/9/20

 13/9/20 The Currane Drifters were in a quandary this wild day and for good reason, there was a strong Southwest wind blowing, as you can imagine it makes it more difficult to manipulate your flies, especially when your boat drifts towards those submerged rocks as you get that crunchy feeling, I will leave the rest to your imagination. In the Salmon department all quiet on the Southwest front. On the World-Famous Butler Pool there were two fly anglers’ manipulating their flies, no reports as of yet. Wind as already stated, reasonable cloud cover and humidity at 82%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.3 centigrade.

12/9/20

12/9/20 Again the Currane fly drifters were in good form in the Sea Trout and Brown Trout department. On the World-famous Butler pool there were 3 Anglers manipulating their Salmon flies, but as of yet my mobile is slack, so I take it the anglers in question had slacklines? Wind Southwest light with good cloud cover, humidity 83%.Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 15.5 centigrade.

Well for starters, the Currane fly anglers caught a few nice Sea Trout on the drift. In the Salmon department there was a fine Salmon caught on the troll. On today’s notes all quiet on the Western front in all departments? Do not be surprised if I update today’s notes in tomorrow’s notes and I will be disappointed if I do not have to update.

8/9/20

                            Anthony McGillicuddy RIP
 

8/9/20 I start with the sad news that the Currane Anglers and the good  people of Waterville have lost a great Taxi Driver Mr. Anthony McGillicuddy RIP, who I might add, took many a Currane Angler to their favourite restaurant after their day’s fishing and brought them back to their B+B or hotels and homes after their night out, I can say without any fear of contradiction he will surely be missed. So, on behalf of the Currane anglers and the good people of Waterville and Kerry and the good people afar, our sincere sympathies to his good Wife Cora and all the Family and friends. Well Anthony you may be gone but you certainly will not be forgotten as you make your way on the Heavenly highway to Heaven. RIP

 

The Currane anglers were in good form with a nice few Sea Trout caught on the drift today. Now we head for the world famous Butler Pool and at www.watervillegolflinks.ie  It was reported to me that there was one Salmon caught on the fly. Now we head for the upper Lakes, just for the record there has some fine action in the Trout department, plus a few rod benders in the Salmon department. On the River Inny department there was a nice flood coming down at lunch time, so you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know the majority of the Currane Anglers had their catch and release Inny hats on this day, how many caught, that is the question? Wind Southwest light and overcast, humidity 98%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.1 centigrade.

2/9/20 Lough Currane maybe on the dirty side but in the last few days there have been a nice few Juniors caught on the drift, in the Salmon department we head for the World famous Butler Pool and at www.watervillegolflinks.ie  and for good reason, on Sunday 30th there were two Salmon caught on the fly, the following day, there were 3 caught, also on the fly, which I might add is great to see. On today’s action, all quiet on all fronts? That includes the Inny. Wind West light and overcast all day with misty rain through the day and just for the record there was a small flood on the Inny and when I say small, I mean small, going by what I saw at midday. Wind as already stated, humidity 97%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.3 centigrade.

1/9/20

 

1/9/20 May be old news but very interesting on the last big flood and why it is taking so long for Lough Currane to clean up, for starters there were big landslides and Copal Lake is still dirty because of this, so low and behold one of the reasons why the Big Lake is still dirty and not forgetting the Big Floods from the Upper Lakes going into the Commeragh, so it  may take a few more days ?  Going by the forecast there is more rain tomorrow, how much that is the question. On today’s manipulations all quiet on all fronts and just for the record there were four boats out on this calm day, wind South Southwest light with reasonable cloud cover, humidity 86%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.1 centigrade.

Monday, August 31, 2020

31/8/20

 

31/8/20 There were four boats manipulating this day and I can say without any fear of contradiction there was no chequebook or pen for their efforts, but having said that, one bit of interesting news, it was brought to my attention that Lough Currane is still filthy after the big flood seven days ago! Wind fresh South and variable, humidity 96%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 16.2 centigrade. 

Sunday, August 30, 2020

Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 16.0 centigrade.  

Saturday, August 29, 2020

29/8/20

 

29/8/20 Lough Currane was on the quiet side in all departments, with a light to fresh wind from the Northeast, humidity 72%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.1 centigrade.           

Friday, August 28, 2020

28/8/20

 28/8/20 Not many boats out this day and for good reason, the Big Lake hasn’t settled down after the big flood, once it does with any luck we should have some good fishing in September especially on the drift, but time will tell and if I’m wrong please don’t quote me!  Wind Northeast light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover, humidity 75%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.7 centigrade.

 27/8/20 In the words of local Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com and I quote, Westerly wind blowing down the Lake, Lough Currane is still dirty after the previous day’s rain, well that sums up today’s manipulations, humidity 88%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.8 centigrade.

25/8/20

 

25/8/20 Before we go to today’s big flood, just for the record in the past few days, the Currane anglers have caught a few Salmon and a good number of Sea Trout on the drift. Now back to today’s flood, well Valentia observatory recorded 52 mm of rain fall last night, as you can see by the video of the Inny there was a fine flood coming down. You do not need to be a rocket scientist to know where the Currane anglers were manipulating their skills, to be fair Lough Currane was a No go for most of the day because storm Francis was still blowing his trumpet. Wind West Northwest fresh to strong and overcast followed by showers, humidity 89%. Yesterday’s weather, rainfall as already stated maximum air temperature 17.3 centigrade.

21/8/20

 

21/8/20 Lough Currane was on the wild side this morning with a strong South Westly wind blowing, come afternoon slightly moderated, but to be honest,  wild or not, the majority of Currane anglers would have had their Inny catch and release hats on. Today’s weather, humidity 89% with good cloud cover followed by a few heavy showers. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 12.3 mm. maximum air temperature 18.5 centigrade.

20/8/20

 

20/8/20 Storm Ellen certainly left its mark in last night’s rain department with Valentia recording 34.4 mm of rainfall and that does not include today’s rainfall. As you can imagine the Waterville anglers had a great choice of Rivers, starting with the C&R River Inny, Commeragh River and of course not forgetting the World-Famous Butler Pool. Where the upper Lakes and Lough Currane are concerned, a strong Southwest wind dictated today’s procedures for most of the day. Today’s humidity 90%. Yesterday’s maximum air temperature 21.2 centigrade.  

Wednesday, August 19, 2020

19/8/20

 

19/8/20 Lough Currane was all quiet on all fronts. Wind light and variable and very humid at 90%. To be fair to the Currane anglers, they would be more interested in securing their boats down in anticipation of Ellen. One can say without any fear of contradiction everyone is waiting for Storm Ellen and hoping for the best that we all will get away with it lightly, especially our good neighbours Co. Cork who are on a Red alert, so all I can say is to the Island of Ireland keep safe and batten down the hatches. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 20.4 centigrade.     

Tuesday, August 18, 2020

                        The calm before Ellen takes control ?

16/8/20 The Lough Currane Anglers were all quiet as you can imagine as they put their catch and release Inny hats on and headed for the Inny for a few rod benders, except for one angler made the wrong turn and headed out into Ballinskelligs Bay, as you can see by the picture. Now back to yesterday’s flood in Kerry The River RoughtyIn Kenmare was in full blast as you can see when you click the link, thanks to Mr. Jerry O’Sullivan of Radio Kerry.

                                                               Inny Bridge this morning 

15/8/20 Well in yesterday’s notes I said the Inny catch and release anglers did not get their flood, well they did not have to wait long because last night and early this morning the heavens opened and thunder and lightning struck the Inny and went into a raging flood, I can tell you come this lunchtime the Inny catch release Anglers were in full swing or put it this way they dam well ought to be because going by the Inny detective agency, this is the best season for a good many years, I can say without any fear of contradiction the Porkies have been caught and released without charge. Now we head for Lough Currane, all quiet on all fronts, you do not have to be a mathematician to work out the angler’s common denominator! Wind West Southwest light to calm and overcast and very humid at 96%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 20.9 centigrade.                 

 


Friday, August 14, 2020

You do not need to be a Rocket scientist to know that their efforts were in vain. Wind Southwest light and overcast all day. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 20.0 centigrade.

The only good news is there is thunderstorms and heavy rain forecasted for tomorrow? so that should put the Inny Anglers Smiling, plus it would be nice to see a Catch and Release Inny Video. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 20.8 centigrade.      

Tuesday, August 11, 2020

29/7/20

The Weather takes control as the rain lashed down on the Waterville Fishery all day and just for the record there were four boats out on the lake, there were no reports of any rod benders and   for the rest of the angling community I’m sure they were manipulating their angling skills on the River Inny.

Today’s weather, Wind Northeast light with bright sunshine all day, humidity 82%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 16.8 centigrade.

Now for today’s action all quiet on the Western front, you have my permission to contradict today’s notes. Wind Southwest light to fresh with good cloud cover.

Dr Tim RIP

15/6/20 Sadly today Lough Currane lost another great fly Angler to the Heavenly Waters, Cork and Waterville Currane Angler Dr Tim O’Connor RIP sadly passed away yesterday. On behalf of our Chairman and all the members of the Angling association and all the good people of Waterville, Kerry and Cork our Sincere Sympathies to all his Family and friends


Dr Tim RIP
To those good people who did not know Tim, well here is some of his angling history and relationship with the Waterville Fishery. Tim’s Family can go back the best part of 100 years, I can say, Tim himself fished 70 of those 100 years give or take. Thankfully to technology i.e. Digital cameras and the paparazzi we have a good few photos of Tim’s great days on Lough Currane, I can just hear Tim say to his Gillie and good friend Tom O’Shea, you can ring the paparazzi. Well Tim you may be gone but you will never be forgotten as a dedicated Doctor and angler. May He Rest In Peace.

7/6/20 We start on the same theme as yesterday in all departments except for the wind was not as strong but the same old direction. So we will go back in time in memories past in the Specimen Sea Trout department, a clean sweep in 1995 all I can say is, I hope when the new Government is formed eventually they will get down to work on protecting the Wild Salmon and Sea Trout out at sea, especially the Salmon that are in lock down, please remember Minister’s it’s the good Irish People’s Salmon and Sea Trout Irish Heritage that is being liquidated. Just for the record what I have wrote is my own personal opinion. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 3.6 mm. Maximum air temperature 11.1 centigrade.   
In Memory of Odie  Lucey RIP .
Great original Landlord of the Lobster Waterville
