Enrico and Neil and their C&R
7/6/15 There was good action on the Waterville Fishery today, we start on Lough Currane at the NW West end. Mr. Shay Lynam of Dublin caught a fine Grilse on the troll, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Michael O’Dwyer. Now we head down Stream to the Bungalow where I might add there was some fine action in the catch and keep department and the C&R department was well represented. We start in the C&R fly department, Mr. Enrico Fantasia fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of caught and released a fine Grilse in the 5 lbs. class. And just for the record they also lost 2 fine Sea Trout. Staying at the Bungalow Neil’s Father, Mr. Donal O’Shea had catch of the day with 2 fine Grilse caught on the troll and lost another  and thankfully the paparazzi had their phone in working order as were the Inland fisheries Officers, as you can see in the photos. Now we cut across the South side of the Lake. Local Gillie Mr. Frank Donnelly of  caught a fine 7 lbs. Salmon / Grilse on the troll and in Franks hired out boat department, Mr. Larkin Buckley and Mr. Colin Mayben caught two Sea Trout both in the 2 ½ lbs. class, If I have got your names wrong Gentlemen please email me and I will put the record straight. Staying in hired out boat department Mr. John Flannery, caught a fine 2 ½ lbs Sea Trout on the drift. Now we head down the South shore to Coffee’s Bay. Mr. Liam Ellis and Mr. Ray Burns, caught and released 2 fine Sea Trout their best was 2 lbs. 8 oz caught by Ray. Also in good form fishing out of Coffee’s Bay was Cork Angler Mr. Michael Quilligan , with a fine 4 lbs, Sea Trout which he sportingly put back. and last but least,Hi Vincent,
Just got back over from the UK and launched my boat this afternoon at Coffey's so  thought I would give it a run out and spend a few hours drowning some flies. As luck would have it second drift I latched into and landed a super fresh hen SeaTrout. Boy it gave a fine scrap.  As it was just a short trip I did not have the damn camera but luckily  I did have my tape measure it went 52cm not sure what weight that equates to but I am pleased to confirm she went back safely to complete her cycle.
All the best John . Wind North light with reasonable cloud cover at times.
