11/9/17 Waterville Boats and at again take all the Salmon and specimen Sea Trout headlines. We start with the Hampshire professionals and for good reason, Mr, Nigel Henshaw caught a fine Grilse on the fly and his fellow professional fly angler Mr. Peter Ruffle, finished their day off with another fine Grilse and just for the record their weights  were 4 and 5 lbs. respectively, Staying with Mr. Michael O’Sullivan of  Waterville Boats and at Belgium anglers caught a fine 6 lbs plus Sea Trout on the fly, I will give you all the facts on the Belgium fishing Trip in tomorrow’s notes. Just for the record they make this annual trip to Waterville every year as do the Hampshire professionals. Now for quote of the day from the C&R Angler and his quote is as follows, Fish don’t come in to Graze! Wind NW fresh to strong and gusty with heavy showers. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 6.2mm. Maximum air temperature 15.3c.

  1. Hi Vincent, thanks for your blog posts on another highly successful trip to Waterville. Between 3 of us for 4 days, we recorded 5 salmon with Nigel getting a hat trick of 3 salmon in 3 days, and between us over a dozen trout and numerous browns returned, all in the magnificent setting of Currane and with our Kerry hosts who always make the trip for us. The wild fishing was as challenging as ever, but when you put in the work you get rewarded. For us in Hampshire, wild game fishing for 140 euros a day with a ghillie is a miracle, we can pay £400 for a day of brown trout on the Test or Itchen, if Currane was in Hampshire I dread to think what it would cost!
    We look forward to returning for a couple more trips next year.
    Trevor, Nigel and Pete.
