3/10/2022 Just one boat out on the drift and as my phone was all quiet in all departments this day, I will take it that the Currane drifters lines were slack. Now for quote of the Day and it comes from Italy, a lot may have read it on Facebook, but it is such a cracker of a comment on yesterday’s report and I quote, Fishing is like LIFE. You need Passion, Patience, Love for What you are Doing, you Need to Forgive and Let go,, And REEL in All The Beautiful things that come to YOU. !!

30/9/2022 Well as we all know today was the last day of the 2022 Salmon season and we finished in style in the Villa Maria for the traditional Bacon and Cabbage, I will get back to the Villa Maria after the Salmon and Sea Trout facts of the day. We start on the C&R River Inny there were 3 Salmon reported. Now we head for the Butler Pool, UK Anglers Michael and James McSweeney while fishing on the World-famous Butler Pool and at www.watervillegolflinks.ie  caught two Salmon on the fly and accompanied by their Gillie Mr. Michael O’Sullivan of Waterville boats and at watervilleboats@gmail.com Now we go upstream to Lough Currane, Currane angler, Mike from Cork, caught two Grilse and 5 Sea Trout on the fly, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy and at www.fishingwithdom.com  As you can see by the Photo Michael is a C&R Angler. Wind SW veered WNW fresh to strong at times and overcast until the afternoon. Just for the record there was a bit of rain again this morning. Now back to the Villa Maria, well I can say without any fear of contradiction the Bacon and Cabbage was absolutely first class and we finished off with a delicious Apple crumble. So on behalf of the Currane Anglers a big thank you to Fiona, Dan and all their staff for a great night in the Villa Maria and at www.thevillawaterville.com

28/9/2022 I start with an apology to Currane anglers Mr. Brian O’Rourke and Mr J. McCormick and their Gillie and for good reason, I failed to check my messages last weekend so I will put the record straight, In their own words so take it away Brian, Hi there!! We - being Wicklow men Brian O’Rourke and Mr J. McCormick - arrived Friday evening and fished for an hour on Lough Currane, to no avail - medium ENE wind, poor conditions - made up for it mind, with a couple burgers in The Lobster Bar!! On Saturday morning, we were taken out onto Lough Currane by The Shy Man for the day, to no avail except for a few brownies, conditions ENE medium wind, good light!

On Sunday, we went to a small private lake in the upper Currane system, with the Shy Man again as our ghillie, caught a small salmon and 3 sea trout around 2LBs each and a multitude of small-ish brownies, conditions W and WNW light to medium, good light!

This morning we went back to that lake unaccompanied and had a few good rises and small brownies; conditions on that lake NNW winds strong to mild, but very bright!! We had fished out of Lakelands guesthouse, so thanx to Anne Donnelly of www.lakelandshouse.com and The Shy Man for a great weekend!! That's it Vincent!! I might be back down again at the end of next week with different company!! Brian.

Now back to the present there were a few Sea Trout caught on the drift. One boat fishing out of Waterville Boats with their gillie at watervilleboats@gmail.com caught 3 trout of which the best was 2 lbs. No report on the C&R River Inny my Noble C&R anglers were keeping quiet maybe with delight or embarrassment, I will leave that to your imagination. Wind NNW light to fresh and overcast followed by the odd shower in the morning.

22/ 9/2022 The Hampshire Hogs and Waterville Boats and at watervilleboats@gmail.com  weren’t amused with my report yesterday and for good reason because I failed miserably in my duties, you could say it’s a job for Specksavers, So lets put the record straight, I failed to report that Hampshire Hog Mr. Trevor Dewberry, caught 4 Sea Trout caught on the fly, plus I got my facts wrong on Hampshire Hog Mr. Nigel Henshaw and fellow Hampshire Hog Mr. Peter Ruffle on their Grilse they were both caught on the troll, so all I can say is my apologies to the Hampshire Hogs and their Gillie’s of Waterville Boats and at watervilleboats@gmail.com  Now back to the present and today’s Manipulations, we start on Lough Currane and the Hampshire Hogs and in their words. just couple of trout sadly! Expected a good day after the rain last night but it wasn’t to be. One more day tomorrow. Staying with the Hampshire Hogs, you could say they hit rock bottom, I believe Hampshire Hog Mr. Peter Ruffle was backing his Gillie to hit the Saint Ledger as you can see Peter came up Trump’s as you can see by the picture, now from the Saint Ledger to the River Inny where there was a nice flood coming down river and there were 5 caught and released plus there was one Cork angler manipulating but no reports as of yet. Wind North and variable and a lot of bright sunshine.

Lough Currane

Curran's you will be missed
31/8/2022 The Currane Anglers were all quiet on all fronts today and in my opinion this is very appropriate especially to the Currane anglers because today Curran’s Mace Supermarket opened their doors today for the last time and sadly they’ll be no rush in the future to Curran’s Supermarket and tackle shop to get the first Salmon licence or investing in a new Rapala, so on behalf of the Currane anglers and the good people of Waterville, Dromid,  Caherdaniel, Ballinskelligs, and all the surrounding areas, we wish all the Curran Family and their staff all the best for the future. I can say you will be missed.

Cloud cover!

 14/8/2022 As the clouds hit Kerry the temperature was still high as you can see by the photo. As of yet the Waterville fishery is still waiting for a drop of rain, their forecasting thunder and lightning followed by flash floods? Personally, there is more chance of a flash than a flood? Wind Light and variable from the NE to the West.

A calm Kenmare Bay

13/8/2022 As the Kerry air temperature soars you can imagine the Salmon and Sea Trout going to deeper depths, as the Currane anglers put on deeper sunscreen. I believe the temperature in Waterville today was 28 c. In my garden the picture tells the story, sadly I didn’t get a telegram from Her Majesty, I can tell you my temperature rose. Wind light NW and variable followed by bright sunshine all day.        

Not quite 100 F I can't say the same for the Fishing !

Sea Fishing the order of the day!


12/8/2022 It's all sunshine as the Currane anglers lines stay slack as they wait in anticipation of a flood, so on that note we head out into Ballinskelligs Bay with Mr. Robert Elson of http://thecrescentwaterville.ie/   by all accounts Robert’s Family caught a few nice Pollock and Mackerel and not forgetting their fine cooked Crab and Lobster, as you can see by the photo of Ballinskelligs bay this morning it’s perfect weather for Sea fishing as we Game anglers carry on suntanning.  Wind NE veered NW and variable.

The Picture tells the the story

8/8/2022 More than a 100 years of Hotel Management At The Butler Arms Hotel, Waterville officially comes to an end today and it’s a very sad day in my opinion, especially when the Curtin comes down on more than 100 years of providing a great service by the Huggard Family to tourists from all over the world, from the President of Ireland to Charlie Chaplin and the not so famous. So, on behalf of the Currane Anglers, all the good people of Waterville and from all over the Globe we wish Mrs. Mary Huggard and her family all the best for the future.

Now today’s Manipulations all quiet on all fronts need I say more. Wind NNW light and variable followed by bright sunshine all day.

6/8/2022

 

6/8/2022 The Currane and Inny anglers were all quiet in all departments this day? Just for the record there was one C&R Inny angler manipulating his skills and was up there for a good while, fair play to him, on that note did he or didn’t he is the question? Wind East veered W and veered again into WNW light followed by bright sunshine.

             The Butler Pool playing a Salmon, the season of 1965
 

5/8/2022 All quiet on the Inny, mind you I say that with a stutter, so on that note we head down to the World-Famous Butler Pool and at www.watervillegolflinks.ie where there was a nice bit of action with two Salmon caught on the fly. Wind NNW light, followed by the odd shower this morning followed by reasonable cloud cover.

4/8/2022

 

4/8/2022 We start on the Commeragh where there was one Cork angler manipulating his Skills, sadly I can’t confirm whether he caught one but all I do know he walked off the Commeragh and headed for the C&R River Inny, so I take it his lines were slack on the Commeragh? Talking of the Inny I can confirm that there was 5 Salmon caught by other Inny C&R anglers. On Lough Currane it was all quiet on all fronts. Wind light North and veered NNW in the afternoon with reasonable cloud cover.

2/8/2022

 

2/8/2022 There was a good flood coming down the Inny and the Commeragh and you can be sure there were a few catches and releases and on that optimistic note we head for the Currane Anglers negative view.

Hi Vincent

I have Coming to Waterville for 30 yrs. plus. Usually, I fish Inny after a flood and buy a day ticket. Just tried to get day permit but shop requested 100 euro to join club also.

This is crazy, is it true.

1/8/2022

 

1/8/2022 We start on Lough Currane there was two boats out and their lines were slack all day, so on that note we head upstream to the Commeragh where one Cork angler was manipulating his skills and I believe he may have caught at least one but as of yet this hasn’t been confirmed. Now we cut across the Valley to the River Inny where there was 3 Salmon caught on the fly and released. Wind SW fresh and overcast all day followed heavy downpours.

31/7/2022 Well the flood did a first-class job in the conversion of the Currane anglers to the C&R Inny Anglers and they weren’t sorry with 9 Salmon reported caught and released. The amount of rain fall was 15.1 mm. Wind NNW west light bright and sunny all day and very warm, staying with the weather Kerry is on a yellow rain warning for Bank Holliday Monday.

30/7/20/22 All was quiet on the Lake this day? as the clouds thickened and as the rain began, we were all hoping for a flood, well the Currane anglers Prayers were answered in a small way with a small flood, so as you can imagine My Noble Currane Anglers will be converted to the C&R Inny manipulators tomorrow. Wind WSW and variable light to fresh and overcast all day, followed by a nice drop of rainfall.
