Ballinskelligs tonight 
30/5/2023 Straight to the Salmon/Grilse department and for good reason, Currane angler Sjaj Foley from Holland and Ireland all in one caught a fine 5 lbs. Grilse on the troll while fishing with his gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of  Wind light and variable from the East to the West followed by bright sunshine all day. Just for the record there were only three boats out today.

29/5/2023 Great news for the Currane anglers today because the first Salmon Grilse was caught on the troll by Currane angler Andy from Co. Clare while fishing with his Gillie and good friend Mr. Bob Priestley, so let’s hope it’s the first of many for all the Currane anglers. On the weather front another bright and sunny day followed by a light variable breeze from the East to the SW to the NW come evening.

 28/5/2023 The Currane anglers were all quiet going by my WhatsApp and as I say that my WhatsApp has some good news and I quote Dónal fishing out of the Buter Arms Hotel and at  caught a 12 lb salmon on troll, only out 10 mins when he got him. Just for the record Dónal was fishing with his Gillie out of Waterville Boats and at  considering the low water conditions Lough Currane proves low water or not, you always have a chance.  Wind ENE and veered WNW for a while and veered back again NE

Ballinskelligs Sunset last night  


27/5/2023 Just one boat out today and that’s not surprising considering the bright conditions and going by my WhatsApp it was all quiet, mind you if you’re a  Luton Town supporter your certainly celebrating your premiership promotion so congratulations to all the Luton Town supporters as the Saints go marching down. Wind light to calm WNW veered NNE.
