21/9/2021

 21/9/2021 Straight to the Currane Drifters who were manipulating their skills and caught a few Juniors and Brown Trout this day. Now we head for the C&R River Inny and for good reason, the water levels maybe low but this didn’t deter one fly angler from catching and releasing one Salmon, fair play to the Inny Angler. Wind SE and veered SW light and overcast all day.

20/9/2021

 

20/9/2021 Normally one would start with the Waterville Fishery facts of the day but this evening I was looking at a fantastic photo of Sunset on Cloonknocklin by photographer, Mr. James Bannon, you could say that it is James’s catch of the day!

Now we head out on to Lough Currane to the Currane drifters and for all their efforts just a few Juniors and Brown Trout caught on the fly. Now we head for a back date in the C&R Inny department and for good reason, there was one well satisfied Cork angler who was celebrating all his Salmon releases over the weekend, and it was not the beer talking, it was the flying C during the day and the beer and partying came in the evening. Wind NNW light with reasonable cloud cover at times.

                     Video of the Commeragh yesterday!

18/9/2021 They say the early bird catches the worm, well in this case it was the early angler that caught a Salmon on the Commeragh early this morning. Now we head down stream to the big lake and the Currane Fly Drifters, there were six boats manipulating their skills and they caught a few Trout for their efforts and on that note we head across to the C&R River Inny and there were two caught. Wind SSW light and overcast.

An Angler enjoying a bit of fine spinning on the River Inny today!

17/9/2021 Made another good flood last night, so as you can imagine the Inny anglers were up reasonably early and making their way to their favourite spots. By all accounts there were a good few Catch and Release this day. Now we head out to Lough Currane, in the drifting department just a few Trout caught. Wind NNW light and variable with reasonable cloud cover.

                               Commeragh in Flood today!

                                          Inny This morning 

14/9/2021 Straight to today’s facts, firstly there was a good flood last night, so one doesn’t need be a rocket engineer to know the C&R Inny anglers were manipulating their skills this day and here is some of today’s C&R Inny action, there were four Salmon caught on the fly and one on the spin, Now we head for Lough Currane, there were 5 boat out and there was a mixture of Juniors and Brown Trout caught on the drift. Wind light to calm NNW with reasonable cloud cover in the morning as you can see by the picture but come early afternoon their was a fair bit of bright sunshine.

11/9/2021

 

11/9/2021 I think Currane anglers were concentrating more on the All Ireland Final than manipulating flies and lures this day as they watched the Red hands of Tyrone made sure the so called curse of Mayo continues as they went down by 2-14 to Mayo’s 0-15 if this was a Currane fishing result there would be a good few Currane Anglers smiling. Wind NW light with reasonable cloud cover. Good News on the Facebook saga I found out who’s responsible for getting the blog banned and as they say a picture tells the story. 

                             As Miley would say, Holy God

                                 The Wild Atlantic Way!

8/9/2021 There were four boats today and it was the Currane fly Trout anglers that were manipulating their skills and for their efforts they caught a few Juniors and bagged a few Brownies and that was their ration for the day. Wind East and veered Southeast light and variable and overcast with rain coming in tonight and the possibility of flash floods as you can see by the yellow warning for the Currane forecast

                  Sunset on the Wild Atlantic Way this evening 

7/9/2021 Just one boat out on this hot day as the sun blazed down on the waters of Lough Currane, the only savour was there was a nice ESE light breeze. So, you do not have to be a rocket engineer to know today’s results plus the Vodafone lines were all slack and here endeth today’s Currane notes.

6/9/2021

 

6/9/2021 Mini heat wave hits Currane anglers this day with blazing sunshine from midmorning, followed by a light SSE wind and variable and all communications were all silent, mind you there could be some breaking news with the evening shift so watch this space. On that note we head for the Currane anglers’ point of view, UK Currane angler Bill has his say on the Waterville Fishery, so take it away Bill and I quote.

The latest issue of Trout & Salmon reports that the fish farm in Loch Ewe was closed last November & surprise, surprise, healthy trout are returning to Loch Maree. The detrimental impact of aquaculture became evident in 1989. Yet, the Irish government permitted fish farming in the vicinity of Waterville and Ireland’s best and most famous seatrout fishery.  This was not in 1989, but in recent years (after 3 decades of accumulated evidence).  What did they think would happen?  A decision that was (almost) unbelievable in its stupidity and irresponsible to an extent that is frankly criminal. This gentlemen of the angling fraternity (and everyone else who is concerned about the environment) is what we are dealing with. One doesn’t need a degree in marine science to know what’s wrong with Lough Currane. The answer is so obvious that any child of average intelligence could spot the problem and have anticipated these events.

5/9/2021

                  Lough Currane and the Wild Atlantic Way today!
 

5/9/2021 Just a few boats out manipulating the Currane waters on a very overcast day with a SSE wind light, by all accounts their lines were slack?

Now we head for the Currane anglers’ point of view, UK Currane angler Barry has his say on the Waterville Fishery, so take it away Barry and I quote.

 

And yet another frantic day on the Mecca for Sea Trout in ROI. What was the excuse today, sun, wind, heat, cold, no cloud, too low cloud, low water, flood, too many boats, too few boats, netting by super trawlers, illegal netting at sea, or the 1000 other excuses we have heard over the 34 years of rapidly deteriorating fish stocks? Or could it just be the carbuncle of a fish farm place just up the coast in a beautiful little bay. We were informed that there was indeed no scientific evidence of the detrimental effect on wild fish stocks. Well 30 years later we can see the full evidence on a daily catch report from someone who, along with a few others, actually still care. A single boat out on the most prodigious Sea Trout venue in the whole of the Country. Shameful and despicable, and an environmental disaster. Have a nice day.

          Lough Currane today and the Picture dose tell the story! 


3/9/2021 We start by winding yesterday’s reels in on the World-famous Butler Pool and at www.watervillegolflinks.ie and for good reason, Currane fly angler Mr. David Morrissey caught a fine 5 ½ lbs Salmon. Now we again head upstream to Lough Currane and today’s lack of action and in the words of one top Gillie and I quote No Fish No Wind No good and the picture tells today’s story.
