21/6/2024. As we all know today is the longest day of the year and going by my WhatsApple it certainly was for the Currane anglers as their reels and lines were all quiet in all departments. On today’s weather, there was some heavy rain this morning, how much rainfall I will give you the facts in tomorrow’s notes. Wind fresh WSW veered NW in the afternoon. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 0.3mm, amount of sunshine 0hrs.3mins, maximum air temperature 15.6c.

20/6/2024. The Currane anglers had another hard day’s of manipulations in the Salmon and Sea Trout department this day, sadly, if it had been a hard day’s night, they might have caught a record, personally I prefer carbon fibre to vinyl, if you get my drift, so on that note we will go into the backdate department, the stage and video is yours Brian. Hi Vincent!! I was down last week to no avail fishing-wise as Lough Currane was like a millpond for most of my time there 11th through 13th! However, I went for a memorable spin with The Shy Man on the 11th! While we were trolling on that aforementioned millpond, we came across a White-Tailed Eagle pursuing a merganser and possibly her ducklings!! The attached video was filmed at about 10am as the eagle buzzed the merganser until our approach! As the parent merganser left, the eagle continued to try to flush the youngsters from the shoreline - to no avail!! We moved away altogether rather than interfere! The eagle stayed put, so there must have been potential prey there for it! Kind regards, Brian O'Rorke - we'll be back!!  

Wind SW light to fresh, followed by bright sunshine all day. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 0.9mm, amount of sunshine 13hrs.8mins, maximum air temperature 15.4c.

17/6/2024. The Currane anglers frustration is understandable, four boats headed out on to a low lake and by the end of their day, it was the same old story, nothing to report. They say their frustrated, they should be in my shoes but thankfully I’m full of it, so carry on fishing and I’ll carry on reporting. Wind NNE light to fresh and sunny throughout the day. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 0.0mm, amount of sunshine 13hrs.5mins., maximum air temperature 15.8c. 

16/6/2024. The Currane anglers certainly had their suntan lotion on this day, as the sun blazed down on the Currane waters, even though there was a nice light to fresh wind from the WNW and variable, their reels and lines stayed silent and slack, going by my WhatsApple. Now we head for poetic Currane anglers view on drink while fishing, the stage is yours. Beer is the secret to catching fish. In order to think like a fish, you have to drink like a fish, Cheers.
