Currane Angler 5 year old Conor!
 16/9/18 There was some great action and a bit of history from the South side today. So we will begin in the hired out boat department of Killarney Angler Mr. DJ Riordan, While fly-fishing on the drift, caught 15 Sea Trout, ranging from Juniors up to 1 ¾ lbs. Staying with hired out boat department, anglers also reported nice catches of Juniors caught on the fly and were well satisfied with their days manipulations. Local Gillie Mr. Frank Donnelly of reported that one boat was out there all day, signalled on his way home that he also caught a few Sea trout. Now Catch of the day goes to 5 year old Conor who celebrated his 5th  Birthday today and got his first fishing rod and I can tell you it didn’t take Conor long to ask his Grandad Mr. Frank Donnelly of would he take him fishing so he could catch a fish with his brand new fishing rod, well Grandad obliged and by jove Conor christened his new rod in style by catching his first ever Junior and may it be the first of many and by the looks of it a Gillie in the making. On a personal note on behalf of all the Currane anglers well done Conor and a very Happy Birthday to you. Now we head for the North side and the Bungalow, Mr. John Smith of  Birr, Co. Offaly, caught  2 Sea Trout up 2 ½ lbs. While fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of and for the rest of the Currane anglers it was all quiet on the SW front. Wind SW calm to light with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 16.7 c.
