Not Red not Blue just big!

26/1/17 Update

Fishing  News update from Mr. Rob Elson of the Crescent Bed and Breakfast and of  Brod and myself had a good few hours out on the lake today, 3 kelts safely returned, the last one, well when it hit the bait we thought it was the right  feller taking a hell of a lot of line but not to be, we will try again soon.

26/1/18 Lough Currane was all quiet on the SW front in all departments and I must apologise for the lack of News, but as they say that’s fishing. On the weather front as we all know we have had a lot of rain and sadly that trend is going to continue this evening with putting Kerry on a Yellow warning and they are predicting  Rainfall accumulations of 25 to 40 mm, with the highest totals in the Mountains.

25/1/18 Again Lough Currane was on the wild side with a strong NW blowing with heavy showers as the anglers looked at the odds of catching the first Salmon of 2018, they all came to the  same conclusion that an anglers meeting in the back Bar was the order of the day and could criticise their actions because the weather is Kat. Weather as already stated. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 9.0mm. Maximum air temperature 10.7c.

Wind as already stated. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 7.0 mm. Maximum air temperature 12.3c.

Mr. E.G. Appleby RIP
22/1/18 I’m starting today’s No Spin No Fly’s Just Facts zone on a personal note,  today is the 5th anniversary of my Father’s parting and all I can say is Dad RIP you may be gone but your certainly not forgotten. There is many fantastic memories, but one comes to mind and one I will never forget and that was the day we caught two Salmon on the troll, both at the same time  and fair play to my Father he played both Salmon and to top it all we caught both in a mighty thunder storm with fork lighting and Thank God the fish were the only ones to be electrocuted. Now back to the present, Lough Currane was all quiet on the SW front with a fresh wind from the SW and overcast with light rain at times and staying with the weather, has issued yellow warning and here are the facts from Southwest winds are expected to reach mean speeds of between 55 and 65 km/hr, gusting to 110 km/hr at times on Tuesday night. Issued: Monday 22 January 2018 11:00

17/1/18 The Waterville Salmon Stations opened this day with four boats manipulating the shorelines and the great Salmon lines of Lough Currane, but alas my Noble anglers didn’t contact a Wild Atlantic Salmon this opening day, the only bit of action was in the Kelt department. Wind NW fresh with  heavy showers and overcast all day. On a personal note I would like to wish all Game anglers a great 2018 Salmon and Sea Trout Season and as Dave Alen would not say, may all your fish be with you.
