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 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 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 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.

3/8/2022 All the Salmon headlines come from the C&R River Inny with 7 Salmon reported caught. Just for the record the total amount of rainfall that the Waterville Fishery got over the August Bank Holiday was a grand total of 26.1 mm. Wind light WNW followed good cloud cover.

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 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.
