           Currane's Ladies Anglers of the Month Amy and Molly 

27/6/21 Another Ladies day on Lough Currane as the young O’Dwyer Sisters and Currane Anglers were in good form again in the trolling department and today’s Star is Miss Amy O’Dwyer who caught a fine 3 ½ lbs, Grilse, while fishing with her Dad and her sister Molly and as you can see by the photo there is two Gillie’s in the making and that’s no harm because we older Game fishing Anglers should remember anglers like Amy and Molly are tomorrow’s anglers. Wind NE fresh, bright and sunny all day.

 Two Happy Anglers 

25/6/21 Today was Ladies Day on Lough Currane, Young Currane Angler Miss Molly O’Dwyer broke up from School at 12 pm as their summer holidays began in style by booking her Dad Michael Local Currane Angler for an afternoon’s fishing, come 2.30 pm Molly caught her first Salmon on the troll and the party began as you can see by the picture as Molly holds up her fine Salmon in celebration with her sister Amy. So, congratulations to Molly on her first Salmon and may it be the first of many and its double congratulations because Molly’s Salmon is fish of the month.  Wind light North and variable with reasonable cloud cover at times.

     Why, we Know Why

24/6/21 Straight to the department of come on you Currane anglers and all game anglers of Ireland, England, and all Salmon and Sea Trout Anglers from all over the World, when you fish and catch the poor Sea Trout smothered with Lice let the photo do the talking, as you can see by this photo sent to me, it tells of the sad position Currane is in.  Now we head for today’s catches, in total there were 5 Grilse caught on the troll and for one    promising fly angler while on the drift caught 6 Sea Trout and I believe the biggest was in the 3 lbs class? The Lice infested Sea Trout was about two lbs? Wind West light and overcast all day.

19/6/21 Lough Currane showed its anger today with a strong southerly wind blowing after yesterday’s sad news on the Salmon and Sea Trout lice department. Just for the record just one boat ventured out but by all accounts, nothing to report.  

Friday, June 18, 2021



18/6/21 Sadly all the catching of Salmon and Sea Trout news have been put to one side this day and for good reason. I was sent a picture of a Sea Trout caught on the Waterville fishery today, the Sea Trout was covered in 35 Sea Lice I believe and as they say the picture tells the sick story! Wind NNW light with reasonable cloud cover and Blood pressure High.

9/5/21 The Currane anglers were all quiet on the Currane waters this day and for good reason, they had their C&R Inny hats on because there was a nice flood coming down the Inny, I find it surprising that there was no mention of any C&R Wild Atlantic Salmon, it sounds like Rivergate, I will leave it to your experience and imagination. Wind SSW light and overcast and very humid. A video worth watchingwe might learn from this video

 6/6/21 There were 7 boats out and nothing to report for their efforts, but to be fair to the Currane anglers there were light winds from the NW then veered SW light and bright sunshine all day, so on that note we will head for the River Inny where the sun was shining on one angler, while on the spin caught and released a fine Grilse.

4/6/21 The Currane anglers were all quiet on all fronts this day as we head into the holiday weekend, so let’s hope the Currane anglers from every County comes down and show their skills in the art of fly fishing and trolling and it would be great to get a few C&R photos or videos and show your art in the Salmon and Sea Trout film department. Wind SSE fresh to strong at times and overcast and followed by downpours.

3/6/21 Currane anglers were all quiet but as I say that a few Currane anglers converted to the Inny C&R anglers, and it was not long before a fine 7lbs. Salmon was caught on the spin, plus there was one lost. Wind light to fresh SW and overcast all day with light rain.  Now to the Facebook salmon and sea trout saga, you can believe it or believe it not, I can have a Facebook trail plus I have to pay with money up front and that’s before the trail starts, plus I have to defend myself! Does that make cents or what, it certainly does to Facebook?
