 21/5/2022 As we all know if you have been reading the Salmon and Sea Trout news in the last few day’s, Northern Ireland Currane angler Mr. Andy Wishart and his lonesome boatmen Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com caught in total 5 Salmon for their great efforts but they also got themselves a record, if I’m not mistaken because four of their Salmon were Hatchery Salmon, so congratulations to Andy and his Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com on their record and of course not forgetting the workers up at the hatchery. Now to today’s action and facts, for starters there were six boats out manipulating their flies and lures and it’s the Noble art of flyfishing that takes all of today’s Salmon headlines and for good reason, Cork Currane fly angler while flyfishing with his Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com caught a fine Salmon on the fly. Wind SW and veered SSW light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover.

 17/5/2022 We start in the number of boats out on the waters of Lough Currane today, there were two and that’s a fact and the other fact is that Northern Ireland and Currane angler Mr. Andy Wishart caught a fine 10 lbs Salmon on the fly, with his Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com again one can say that Andy and Dominic weren’t lonesome in the Salmon fly department. Now to the apology department, yesterday Mr. Andy Wishart sent a fine picture of his fine 10 lbs. Salmon which I failed miserably in my duties because I failed to put it up with the report, I Checked text and WhatsApp but failed to check my email. Wind SSW and veered South late in the afternoon with good cloud cover.

16/5/2022 There was just the one boat out this day manipulating the Currane waters and what a cracker of a day for renowned all round Currane angler Mr. Andy Wishart from Northern Ireland and for good reason, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com caught 3 Salmon all in the 9 to 10 lb class, two were caught on the troll and one on the fly, sportingly released two Salmon and finished their day off with a fine 2 lbs Sea Trout. Andy’s quote of the day, I can say the Lonesome boatman and I didn’t have a lonesome day in the Salmon or the Sea Trout department today and there’s no argument to that. Wind SSW and variable with reasonable cloud cover.

11/5/2022 All the Game fishing action comes from Vincent’s Harbour and renowned all-round angler and Guide on the Waterville Fishery the one and only Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com caught and released a fine 4 lbs. Seatrout while trolling today. Now to the Spring Salmon and the Brown Tag saga ended on a stalemate today to the best of my knowledge and if I’m wrong, I can say without any fear of contradiction those Brown tag anglers failed miserably in their duties. Now joking apart as from tomorrow Waterville Fishery is back to where it should be with all rods firing, so come on down and let battle commence. Wind NW light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover and followed by the odd shower.
