19/3/2023 Renowned UK Currane fly angler Mr. Gary Humphrey had his prayers answered, he went out on this wild day with his Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of and just for the record Mr. Gary Humphrey was Mr. Brod O’Sullivan’s client and you can say Brod guided Gary and Dominic to a fantastic day on Lough Currane and here is their facts of the day, while trolling down the Southside of Grassy Island they caught a fine 12lbs. Salmon and had a great battle by all accounts, the action didn’t stop there because they headed for the fly department and yes you have it, within a few minutes the fly rod was bent double and again their C&R 10 lbs. Salmon gave Gary a great battle as Dominic netted his fine Salmon, Gary said thank you Dominic for a great day’s fishing, Dominic replied don’t thank me thank Brod R.I.P. Wind SW fresh to strong.

18/3/2023 All the action comes from the fly department, Currane renowned fly angler Mr. Declan McEneaney while flyfishing with his guide Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of caught the first 10 lbs. Salmon on the fly this Season, so congratulations to Declan and his Guide Dominic. I asked Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy what fly did Declan catch it on and he told me that it was on a Brod O’Sullivan special, or you can say this first Salmon caught in 2023 is in memory of my good friend Mr. Brod O’Sullivan R.I.P

For the rest of the Currane anglers it was all quiet. Wind NE light fresh, followed by reasonable cloud cover. Just for the record there were 8 boats out and by all accounts there a few Kelts caught on the troll.
