Those were the days my Friends !
20/2/19 Big Flood or no flood the Currane anglers headed out in good anticipation of catching a Currane Wild Atlantic Salmon, be it on the troll or the almighty fly and I will put it as a quote from renowned local Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of out all day, no good, but there is an old saying everything comes to those who wait! Now we head for the Salmon and Sea Trout Licence and for good reason, I hear anglers complaining of the price, well today I came across my Fathers 1966 All districts Salmon and Sea Trout Licence which cost £4 and if you relate this to today’s prices you would be surprised and here are the calculations, £4 in 1966 at today’s value is  £73.90  and just for the record in 1966 the Irish pound was equal to the English pound!! Wind SW Fresh and overcast and wet in the afternoon. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 26. 3. Maximum air temperature 11. 3 c.
