28/6/2022 Another flood hits the Waterville Fishery early this morning and in the words of the Lonesome Boatman and at and I quote, filthy and rising mad and dirty out as far as the Sister’s, as you can see by the video, that sums up today manipulations. So on that note we head for the Currane anglers view on his fishing trip to Waterville, so take it away Brian the stage is yours.

Mr. Brian O'Rourke's 
Salmon caught at the weekend 

Hi! I'm the latest "Renowned Currane angler" on Vincent Appleby's Post!! I'd just like to say, what a great weekend we had just now, despite the weather!! Frank n Anne Donnelly were our hosts at Lakelands; Frank took me fishing into Copal Bay, I'm afraid to no avail on Sunday, but The Shy Man was my star for the weekend - took me out twice, but Saturday was the highlight in that I caught my 1st salmon in 50 years on the fly!! In Commeragh Bay I rose one v early on, possibly the same one, then went on to catch a coupla nice sea trout!! Went back over the same water as earlier and, bang he was on!! The Shy Man rowed furiously out into the bay and we successfully landed the nice 6LBs grilse, 10 mins later!! A great day!! We were entertained gracefully in the Lobster Bar on two nights - the Lobster and crab dishes were 'par excellence!'!! The Guinness flowed as did the serenading efforts of one of our group (he shall be nameless)!!!

It was probably my best fishing trip in my 30 years travelling to Waterville, having been a dapper for most of those, my esteemed hosts and gillies have been persuading me to master the art of salmon fishing, so I have now come of age, I feel!! Hopefully there'll be plenty more!!

Thanx again to the Donnelly's, the Hughes's and of course to 'The Shy Man!' AND of course, to Waterville! We'll be back down in September, pg!! B.
