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.

 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

                        The calm before Ellen takes control ?


18/8/20 Currane Anglers were all quiet on all fronts as we wait for Storm Ellen to hit Kerry, you could say the calm before the storm, as you can see by the photo.

16/8/20

 

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. Wind WSW light with bright sunshine in the morning, it became more overcast in the afternoon, yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 32.6 mm. Maximum air temperature 18.6 centigrade.

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.

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.

5/8/20 Flood was spot on. There were a couple fly Anglers fishing The Butlers Pool this morning but as of yet no reports from the world famous Butler Pool and of www.watervillegolflinks.ie the same goes for the Inny and Commeragh Rivers and the same goes for the Currane Anglers and as I have said many times the majority of the Currane anglers had their Inny pro C&R hats on.

Breaking News On the World Famous Butler Pool and at www.watervillegolflinks.ie in past two day's 3 Salmon caught


4/8/20 All quiet on the Southwest front, the same could not be said on the weather front and for good reason, Kerry is on a yellow rain warning, just for the record, Waterville is forecasted to get 13.5 mm of rainfall but if you take the rainfall in high mountains into consideration it could be a lot more? Wind South Southwest light and overcast followed by rain coming in this evening. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.5 centigrade.

3/8/20

3/8/20 Well this August Bank Holiday Monday did see a few boats out manipulating their flies and lures and by all accounts their efforts did not precure anything substantial, ahh but as I say that there is a rumour that there was at least one caught? Wind Southwest light with reasonable cloud cover at times, humidity 79%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.0 centigrade. Now this Bank Holliday we should remember because of Covid 19 there are a lot overseas Currane Anglers who cannot come to their favourite fishery, so here is a video by UK Currane Fly Angler Mr. Gary Humphry on his last trip to Kerry in 2019.
