Richard. Ian, Sylvester! 
Today’s story of Memories past on Lough Currane, is by UK Angler Mr. Ian Scofield
On the April 2nd, 2011 I was with my friend Richard Haigh and fishing out of Raheen Cottage, our Ghillie was Sylvester Donnelly. We Caught a 10 lb Salmon on the troll, but the big story of our trip however was the big salmon, which was returned because of this, it could not be officially recorded. The anglers concerned were sensible honest people and I am sure their story was truthful. The expert who assessed the weight from measurements was Chris Mills who was qualified in Marine Biology, used to manage the Burrishoole fishery in Newport Co Mayo. He thought the fish would have been in excess of 35 pounds and made our Salmon sound small. Really enjoy your Blog. Best Wishes Ian Scofield.
