Sunset this  morning 

22/4/2022 Good fishing conditions this day with a nice wind again from the SE, sadly there were no takers in the fly department but the same could not be said in the trolling department there was a great C&R of a Salmon in the 10 lbs class by a Currane client and his Gillie.

21/4/2022 Nice to see a few boats out this day but sadly their lines stayed slack and believe it or not, it made a nice flood early this morning and there was a fine current in the Mouth of Commeragh followed by a nice light to fresh SE wind with good cloud cover, even though the conditions were in favour of the angler, the Wild Atlantic Salmon stayed deep. Now back to yesterday, I failed to report that there was a fine C&R 3 lbs Sea Trout caught by Currane Angler Mr. Timm Van DER Lean of Holland, just for the record Timm caught his fine Sea Trout on the troll while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Terence Wharton Snr. My apologies again to Timm and his Gillie Terence for miserably failing in my duties in reporting their fine Sea Trout. Now we head for the RTE archives and it’s a mighty cracker of the old days and we can all learn from these words of wisdom. So click

Hi Vincent why so few boats out on Waterville lake , where are the 64 brown tags that were given out , I’d love to know who got these tags as I didn’t get one and I would love to come down and fish Waterville but I didn’t get any tag , I think this is very unfair on me and other regulars who come to Waterville regularly but won’t because of this pathetic tagging system IfI have put in place ,what was wrong with the 3 blue tag system, at least that worked well and was much fairer, Waterville was always full of anglers for Easter but IfI or whoever introduced this brown tagging have ruined the place , disgraceful.
