Eric catches first Salmon 0f 2023 on the Waterville fishery
 2/2/2023 Mr. Eric Jouen of Waterville Boats and watervilleboats@gmail.com takes all the Salmon Headlines and for good reason, yes you have it, Eric caught the First salmon of 2023 on Lough Currane and the first in Kerry and the second caught in Ireland 2023, his cracker of a Salmon weighed in at 7.5 lbs while trolling by the Bridge, you could say a bridge too far for the wild and lightening fresh Salmon as you can see by the photo of Eric, down by the lake. It wasn’t long before  Eric headed for The Waterville Inn to be presented with the Paddy Carey Memorial Cup by Joan Moriarty on behalf of The Landlord Mr. Damien Duff of The Waterville Inn. I can tell you the party didn’t finish after the presentation they headed down to the Lobster Bar and as you see all of Eric’s Family were waiting to congratulate Eric as you can see by the family photo. Wind SW fresh to strong and overcast.

19/1/2023 Into the third day of the 2023 season and all is quiet on all fronts as you can see by the photos this freezing day as the snow laid on the Kerry Mountains. Just for the record there were 5 boats out. Now we go back to the Bacon and Cabbage in the Lobster Bar Tuesday evening and as I said there was good crack but sadly I missed a cracker of a song about Lough Currane by Currane UK angler Mr. John Young, so take it way John the stage is yours.

17/1/2023 Great to be back reporting on the No Spin No Fly’s just Facts zone on this opening day of the 2023 Salmon and Sea Trout season, so let’s get down to today’s facts. For starters there were 9 boats that ventured out on this freezing cold day, as you can see by the photo there were a good few Currane anglers fishing out of Waterville Boats and at watervilleboats@gmail.com and come lunch time they headed in for a well-deserved whisky and finished off with a fine fry and a glass of wine, sadly there were no Salmon caught this opening day. Just for the record there were a few kelts caught. Well, Currane anglers may have had a cold start to the 2023 season but they made up for it in the Lobster Bar this evening when they had the traditional Lobster Bar Bacon and Cabbage and as you see by the photos a good time was had by all, so a big thank you to the Management and their staff for a great opening of the 2023 season.
