Tim

25/4/2023 Straight to the Fly department, Dutch Currane angler Mr. Tim Van Der laan on his last day of his fishing trip to Lough Currane caught a fine 8 lbs. Salmon on the fly while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Terence Wharton Junior. Now we head for the trolling department and for good reason, Renowned trolling specialist UK Currane angler Mr. Martin Henderson certainly put his words of wisdom and advice to his guide while trolling today and fair play to his guide he manipulated Martin’s lures exactly how Martin advised him and low and behold their reel went off like a rocket and all hell broke lose, as Martin took the rod the battle was on and I can say Martin had a good battle while playing his fine Salmon and by all accounts it wasn’t long before his guide had the fine 11 lbs. Salmon in the net. Staying in the trolling department, UK Currane angler Mr. Mark Knowles, caught a fine 10 lbs. Salmon while trolling with his Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com Now we head for the weather, wind ESE veered SE veered again SSE light to fresh followed by good cloud cover.

Atlantic Sunset, we end up being fried and no it's not global warming  

23/4/2023 Bright and sunny throughout the day followed by a light breeze from the NNW so I take it the Currane reels were as quiet as my WhatsApp. Now we head for The Mad Fisherman and his video

22/4/23

 

22/4/23 Good few boats out today, but alas my Noble Salmon wasn’t precured this day, but to be fair it wasn’t an ideal fishing day for the Currane anglers with flat calm conditions for most of the day except for the odd light variable breezes and overcast with the odd bit of sun breaking through. Staying with the wind, it was literally all over the place, you take your pick.

Dave 

19/4/2023 There were seven boats manipulating their skills on this bright and sunny day and come 3pm the majority of the Currane anglers headed for home early, I believe because of the bright conditions?  What-a-mistaka-to-maka and here’s why, UK renowned Currane angler Mr. Dave Ecclestone caught a cracker of a 15 lbs. Salmon on the fly, around 5pm while fly fishing with his gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com  Wind ESE light and variable.

18/4/2023 The Currane anglers had their Sombrero’s on toady as the sun blazed down on the Currane anglers, you could say it wasn’t a great day for fishing, but I can say that Mr. Jack Madden would totally disagree and for good reason, while trolling with his good friend Dillon, caught a fine 8 lbs. Salmon. Wind SE light to fresh.

First, we start in the specimen Sea Trout department local gillie Mr. Bob Priestley caught and released a fine Sea Trout in the 9 lbs class, now we head for the Salmon C&R department, a Currane fly angler fishing with his good friend caught and released a fine Salmon. Now back to the present, Currane Angler fishing out of the Villa and at  https://thevillawaterville.com/   caught a cracker of an 11 lbs. Salmon on the troll in the hired out boat department of Waterville boats and at watervilleboats@gmail.com  Now as we all know today was Mr. Brod O’Sullivan RIP Months Mind Mass and I can say without any fear of contradiction that it was a lovely tribute to Brod, his Brother Paddy wrote a fantastic poem in Brod’s Memory and read by his Grand Niece Laura.


Brod RIP

Stroll by the lake and think of me, I’m not that far away, Know I’m where I need to be,  I’m just gone fishing for the day,  While by the water’s edge you go, Take time a simple prayer to say, And in your heart, I’ll let you know,  I’m just gone fishing for the day, The last time you and I were here,  A rainbow graced our lake-bound way,  A sign that I am always near,  I’m just gone fishing for the day.
