      Gary, I'll be back to the Waterville                             Fishery

12/10/20 Well today as we all know was the last day of the 2020 Salmon and Sea Trout season and sadly the Currane Drifters did not report of any action to talk of. So, on that note I do have a story of one very unhappy UK  and Currane angler Mr. Gary W Humphrey, who I might add was very disappointed that he could not come to Waterville this 2020 season, thanks to Covid 19, so Gary took his skills onto the Britain’s Rutland  reservoir and Guided by England international fly angler and no stranger to Ireland Mr. Craig Barr and I can tell you it wasn’t long before Gary caught a fine Fish, you can see more photos on www.flashattackflies.com  What can I say about this Season, well I put it in a Nutshell, not a lot because of Covid 19. Except to say a big thank you to you the followers of No Spin No Fly’s just Facts because without you good readers and supporters of the Waterville fishery there would be no blog and thank you for all your fishing story’s at the beginning of the lockdown. Now another big thank you goes to Mr. Myles Kelly and all the Inland fisheries team for their great support and last but not least on a personal note. I must give a big thank you to Mr. Paul Bourke of the Trout and Salmon Magazine. I think that’s about it for this 2020 Season and let’s hope 2021 will bring our tourists back to Ireland, especially the Waterville Fishery and I look forward to reporting to you on the No Spin No Fly’s just Facts, so stay safe and have a very happy Christmas and New Year.

                                  Currane in the deadly hour!

11/10/20 Going by the Currane spy glasses there were three boats out manipulating their flies on this calm and overcast day and going by their lack of texts I take it their reels were as quiet as my phone?

6/10/20

6/10/20 The Currane drifters had a strong West Northwest wind this day, that is if they headed out on the Currane Waters, going by their telecommunications it was either a no go, or no rises as the waves hit their boats? It was a different story for the Cork Killarney Lakes Anglers because they took their boats off the Lakes and headed across the County Bounds before the Covid 19 county lockdown comes into effect at midnight tonight. Wind as already stated. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 14.3 centigrade. 

Monday, October 5, 2020

1/10/20 All the Trout headlines go to the hired out boat department of Waterville Boats and at watervilleboats@gmail.com and for good reason, an Currane fly angler, fishing out of watervilleboats@gmail.com caught and released a cracker of a Brown Trout or it could be a Sea Trout ? For the rest of the Currane anglers all quiet.  Wind light with good cloud cover, followed by heavy showers at times. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 14.3 centigrade.

                                       A fine Wild Atlantic Salmon Salmon!


Phil in action 
 





 


30/9/10 Covid 19 as we all know dictated proceedings this 2020 Salmon and Sea Trout season, especially denying long time and new Currane fly anglers coming from all over the World to this world famous Salmon and Seatrout Fishery, well I have great news in the Salmon department, Currane fly angler Mr. Phil Staniforth of the UK and Ireland while fly fishing with his Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com  caught a cracker of a Salmon of 14 lbs. on a 6lbs leader and what a battle Phil had with this monster of a Salmon, it took 2 hours to safely manipulate this fine Salmon into the shoreline so he could be put back, so congratulations to Phil, a day I’m sure you will never forget and the same goes to your Gillie Dominic. Weather wind Southwest and the photos tell it all on this last day of the 2020 Salmon Season.     

Tuesday, September 29, 2020

29/9/20


                                Lough Currane today!

29/9/20 There were four boats out, two on the northside and two on the Southside and by all accounts their lines were slack, that’s  only speculation on my part, what isn’t speculation, Kerry is on a yellow rain warning, their forecasting 25 to 40mm of rainfall for the Southwest and as we know tomorrow is the last day of the 2020 Salmon Season, so all bets are on the Currane anglers converting back to the Inny catch and release fly anglers. All I can say is tight lines to all the Waterville Fishery Anglers. Wind South Southwest light to fresh and overcast, humidity 85%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 15.4 centigrade.

28/9/20

LOUGH CURRANE TODAY!                                    




 28/9/20 Going by the spy glasses just four boats out manipulating the Currane waters and going by the lack of texts its all quiet in all departments. As you can see by the photos it was hard going with little enough wind from the Northwest and bright sunshine all day, humidity 87%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 15.0 centigrade. 

Sunday, September 27, 2020

27/9/20

                               Calm day on Lough Currane!
 

27/9/20 There were at least 10 boats out manipulating this day, which was great to see, plus the majority were on the drift, by all accounts there was a nice mixture of Sea Trout and Brown Trout caught on the drift. In the Salmon drifting department one unlucky Currane fly Angler got into a fine Salmon but sadly My Noble Salmon was well educated saw that the anglers engine was down and headed straight for it and got an automatic  catch and release, the rest is history. Wind light and variable and overcast, humidity 93%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 13.9 centigrade.

24/9/20

Currane today!

24/9/20 The Currane anglers were stranded on the shoreline as the yellow wind warning took control as the Northwest gales hammered the lake and veered North with no respite, but not all was lost as the heavens opened last night and early this morning, which made good fishing for the River Inny. Today’s weather as already stated. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 14.4 centigrade.

Wind West light and bright, humidity at midday 57% rose to 58% by 5pm. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.2 centigrade.

19/9/20

 

19/9/20 The Currane drifters were all quiet this bright September’s day. What do you expect with bright sunshine all day and little clouds to talk of, followed by a light to calm Southwest wind, humidity 66%? That sums up today’s news. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 21.3 centigrade.

Friday, September 18, 2020

18/9/20

18/9/20 Wind East Northeast light bright sunshine all day, humidity 69%. Where the Currane drifters are concerned you could say it was a loss cause. So, on that depressing note, we go back in time to the Currane archives, on the 26/8/20 Mr. Jamie Conway, flyfishing for the first time on Lough Currane, caught a fine Salmon, while fishing with his gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com All I can say Jamie, may it be the first of many and my apologies for the delay. Wind as already stated, yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 23.3 centigrade.




                Jamie's First Salmon on the Fly on Lough Currane!

Wednesday, September 16, 2020

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.  

15/9/20

 

15/9/20 The Currane fly drifters were all quiet and the same goes for the trollers. Wind Southeast light to fresh followed by light misty rain, humidity 91%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 22.1 centigrade.

Sunday, September 13, 2020

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. 

Saturday, September 12, 2020

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.          

Friday, September 11, 2020

11/9/20

 11/9/20 The Currane fly anglers were in reasonably good form in the Trout Department this day, with a nice mixture of Sea Trout and Brown Trout caught on the drift. Wind West Southwest, humidity 88%. Yesterday’ weather, maximum air temperature 15.5 centigrade. 

Thursday, September 10, 2020

10/9/20

 10/9/20 I stand corrected and guilty as charged for failing miserably in my duties for not checking my texts properly yesterday, so my apologies, so let us put the record straight. 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. Wind West light with good cloud cover, humidity 69 %.  

Wednesday, September 9, 2020

9/9/20

 

9/9/20 All quiet on the Southwest front in all departments. Wind NNW light with reasonable cloud cover, humidity 81%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.1 centigrade.

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.

4/9/20

 4/9/20 Going by my phone it is all quiet on the Southwest front but going by the phones lately it wouldn’t surprise me I that I get the texts tomorrow or even next week? Wind West Southwest light and veered Northwest, with reasonable cloud cover, humidity 76%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.0 centigrade.  

Thursday, September 3, 2020

3/9/20

 

3/9/20 Well some Currane anglers had a bit of action today, in the Salmon department, there was at least   one Grilse caught on the troll and it was great to see a few nice Sea Trout caught on the drift. Wind West Southwest fresh with good cloud cover, humidity 77%. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 8.0mm. Maximum air temperature 17.7centigrade.     

Wednesday, September 2, 2020

2/9/20

 

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.    

Tuesday, September 1, 2020

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

30/8/20

 30/8/20 All quiet on all fronts this day. Wind West Northwest and veered Southwest in the afternoon, light with bright sunshine all day and come this evening there was a nice Mackerel sky, is there rain on the way and if there is the converted Inny anglers will be smiling? 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.          

Thursday, August 27, 2020

27/8/20

 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.         

Wednesday, August 26, 2020

26/8/20

 26/8/20 Lough Currane was filthy dirty this morning and for good reason, there was big a flood coming down the Commeragh this morning, just for the record it was reported to me that 82mm of rainfall fell yesterday and early this morning. Wind Southwest light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover, humidity 87%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.5 centigrade.          

Tuesday, August 25, 2020

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.          

Monday, August 24, 2020

24/8/20

 

24/8/20 Well the Inny anglers are anticipating a big flood, I can tell you the heavy rain has already started this evening; their forecasting 18 mm of rainfall, give or take for Waterville. On today’s action the Currane Anglers were all quiet on all fronts. Wind Southwest light to calm and veered East Southeast this evening and overcast all day, humidity 95%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.2 centigrade.     

Sunday, August 23, 2020

23/8/20

 

23/8/20 All quiet in all departments, you could say, the Inny and Currane anglers were as silent as the lambs. Wind West light to fresh and overcast all day, followed by the odd heavy shower, humidity 94%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 16.6 centigrade. Attention all Inny anglers keep your catch and release hats on because there is a big flood forecasted, starting late Monday, the main event on Tuesday.     

Saturday, August 22, 2020

22/8/20

 

22/8/20 The Currane Anglers still have their Inny catch and release hats on today, as there was a reasonably good flow. Going back to Lough Currane what boats were out were all quiet on all fronts. Wind WSW light to fresh with good cloud cover with rain at times. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 8.1mm. Maximum air temperature 17.8 centigrade.      

Friday, August 21, 2020

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.     

Thursday, August 20, 2020

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.

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.

15/8/20

                                                               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.
