enjoying a good meal
30/1/16 All quiet on the SW front, just the one or two boats out and no reports of any action. Wind NW with showers. So on that note we head for the Waterville Inn and the end of the Shooting Season party and what a party we had, a fantastic meal, one has to give a big thank you to the Landlord of the Waterville Inn Mr. Damian Duff and his good wife Sally and their staff for a great Night and the Night was finished off with some great Music and Dancing.

29/1/16 Boats did venture out today after Storm Gertrude went across the water, as Lough Currane settled down, my Noble anglers headed out and put their angling skills to the test, but sadly they failed in all departments. Wind SW fresh with showers.

28/1/16 Straight to the quote of the day, Local Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of  reports another South-westerly storm, no fishing, Salmon on the wild Atlantic Way are quite safe at the moment. That sums up the weather and the fishing.

27/1/16 There were no reports of any action on Ireland’s premier  Salmon and Sea Trout Lake Lough Currane and after the amount of rainfall in last 24 hours that’s not surprising with Valentia Observatory recording 37.0 mm of rainfall. Now to all you anglers who love the wild Atlantic salmon you should click this link because you will be interested and shocked ? Back to today’s weather, wind NW fresh with showers throughout the day.

26/1/16  All Salmon stations were closed on Lough Currane this morning, due to storm force winds from the SW, come afternoon it was calm. There were no reports of any action on the afternoon shift. Staying with the weather the Valentia Observatory has recorded 238.1mm of rainfall so for the month.

25/1/16  No reports of any rod benders and going by the Lough Currane secret service there weren’t any boats out there, all I can say is you lazy articles. Wind West fresh with plenty of sunshine and staying on the weather front its wild tonight and going by the forecast the chances are that there will be no fishing tomorrow.

24/1/16 This is getting monotonous ! The weather takes all the headlines again with all Salmon stations closed and for good reason, there was a strong SW wind blowing and I’m sorry to say Met √Čireann forecast isn’t much better for next week.

C&R Trout 
22/1/16 Lough Currane was on the wild side with a strong westerly blowing down the lake this morning and as you can imagine all boats were in dry dock for most of the day, the reason I say this, the wind did soften in the afternoon but with all that, there were no reports of number 2. So on that note we will head for the South Shore, I was sent a photo of a fine spent Trout which I might add looks in great condition and yes it was put back, the angler in question caught two more in the same class.

21/1/16 Sadly the weather is taking all the head lines today, with a strong Southerly cutting across the lake with  light misty rain all day. Just for the record one could have fished the South Side but I didn’t get any reports from any manipulators.

20/1/16 Again Lough Currane was at a standstill   and for good reason, there was a strong SE wind blowing across the Lake, so at least my Noble anglers had a good excuse to head for the high stool and reminisce, if only I had caught the first in 2016. Wind as already stated with light rain for most of the afternoon.

19/1/16 Lough Currane was flat calm and overcast. There were just a few boats out working the North Shore and the only bit of action was in the Kelt department and a total of two kelts were caught by Mr. Sion Brain of and for the rest of the Star Wars, Manipulating their Galactic lures, they failed miserably in their duties.

Neil and Damian 
Rod, Donal, Neil, Damion
This evening Mr. Neil O’Shea with his good wife Patsy and all the O’Shea family headed for the Jolly Swagman, Waterville and Mr. Neil O’Shea was presented with the Paddy Carey Memorial Cup by the Landlord of the Jolly Swagman Mr. Damian Duff and fair play to Local Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea because he has made History today by catching the first Salmon on the Waterville Fishery and the first  Salmon to be caught in the whole of Ireland in 2016 which his record for the Waterville fishery which can’t be broken, it can only be repeated.                      

All the family and friends get in on the act
18/1/16 Breaking News, the First Salmon caught on the troll and the first caught in the whole of Ireland in 2016 was caught by renowned Local Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of his Salmon weighed in at 10 lbs. and as one local man said that’s great news for the Waterville Fishery and what makes it more special, it’s the first in Ireland. Weather conditions overcast and calm.

gone but not forgotten 
17 January 2016 Its great to be back on the No Spin No Fly’s just Facts Zone and the 2016 Rising of the Salmon and a Very Happy New Year to you all and tight lines, as Ireland celebrates the 1916 Easter Rising, we anglers hopefully will be celebrating 2016 rising of the Salmon, but sadly today was a wash out with rain all day, with a strong SE wind blowing and all Salmon stations were at a standstill. All I can say is James Connelly the Irish Rebel  wouldn’t have been amused with the Lough Currane performance, but at least he would have heard a few shots being fired at the odd woodcock and Snipe so on that note we head down stream to the World famous Butler Pool and at  and Local Gillie Mr. Michael O’Dwyer and his client, they did have one rod bender but alas they lost the Battle. That is all the action of the day as my Noble Anglers headed for the Lobster Bar for the traditional Bacon and cabbage and a good dinner was had by all.
