Michael  O'Sullivan

All the head lines go to Mr. Michael O’Sullivan of Waterville boats and @ and for good reason while Michael was manipulating in the trolling department, his trolling rod went off like a rocket with a 20 lbs Salmon on the end of the line, and Michael was in for one hell of battle with my Noble Salmon and I can tell you it took Michael 1 hour to conquer the old Gentlemen, and I can tell you once the Paparazzi got their photos, Michael headed straight to the Lobster Bar and the rest is history. Wind NE light to calm and overcast.

As I am sure you all know it’s a month today since my Father sadly past away, and as my father used to say, life must go on, many a true word spoken in gesture, so lets get down today’s facts or I should say the lack of them, and in the words of young Mr. Terence Wharton, wind east and freezing and no good.

Mr.Mike Dwyer
Lough Currane came alive with the sound of the Shimano reel, singing its national anthem today on the south side of the lake, when renowned local Gillie Mr. Mike O’ Dwyer, caught a fine 7.5 lbs Salmon on the troll, and the crack didn’t end there, because Mike, headed straight for the Waterville Inn, to claim the Paddy Carey Memorial Cup from the Landlord, Mr. Damian Duff and his good wife Sally, for bringing in the first Salmon into the Waterville Inn, and I can tell you the pints were flowing like a spate river.
