Owen Currane angler of the year 2023

12/10/2023 There were 7 boats out manipulating their skills on this last day, sadly not a great finish to the end of the 2023 season and for good reason, for starters there was 31 mm rainfall yesterday, a total of 41 mm within 26 hours so you can understand why. Now back to today’s action, just the odd trout, but one boat did report 4 small seatrout for their efforts. Wind was slack ESE and variable and overcast all day, followed light rain at times. Now we head for the Currane Anglers of the year and that goes to Curran fly Angler is Mr. Owen Moriarty who caught his first Salmon on the fly, weighing in at 11 lbs. Junior Currane fly angler of the year is Master Dan Dwire for catching his first ever two Salmon on the fly. All I can say is congratulations to the winning Currane Anglers.

As I have being saying for over 20 years it’s that time of year again and yes you have it, first of all I would like to say a big thank you to you the readers of the Blog and especially Mr. Myles Kelly and all the team in the Inland Fishery Ireland for their great support as always, this 2023 season. Also, a big thank you to Mr. Paul Burke of the Trout and Salmon, who has the hard work of editing my reports every month, well Paul you still have the patience of a Saint. So, on that note I can’t wait for the 2024 Season, Happy Christmas to you all and stay safe and I’m looking forward to January 17th, 2024, and writing On The No Spin No Fly’s just Facts Zone.

11/10/2023 Another big flood today, the amount of rainfall I will give you the facts in tomorrow nights notes, staying with rainfall, there was 10mm of rainfall yesterday. Now we head out on to Lough Currane, a good few brown trout out caught on the drift and the odd decent sea trout caught also, one boat C&R 1 seatrout 1 junior and over 20 brownies around rabbit. Now to the backdate department, a lone Wild Trout angler, had some good fishing on the south side of the lake during the last week. Wind light ENE and variable.

10/10/2023 Straight to the backdate department and for good reason, because I failed miserably in my reporting on last weekend’s notes on the Wild Trout Currane fly anglers, I can tell you I got a good diplomatic thrashing for not checking my phone, I have to say I am guilty as charged, so let’s put the record straight, Wild Trout Currane angler Mr. Adam Healy, C&R 14 Brown Trout and one Sea Trout on Saturday and finished his 2023 Currane Season on Sunday for a quick half an hour and C&R two Brown Trout with his Daughter,  before pulling up the boat for the Winter. I hope this puts the record straight and again my apologies to Adam and his daughter. On a personal note, Adam’s catches just proves that the Currane Wild Trout fishing wasn’t as bad as I have been reporting? If you get my drift. Now back to today’s action and yes, I have checked my phone, and all is quiet phone wise. Wind SW light and variable followed by thick fog at times.

9/10/2023 Another bright and warm day for the Currane Wild Trout anglers as they cast their flies for that elusive Wild Currane Trout and going by my WhatsApple the wild Trout were very elusive? Wind South veered SW light.  

Sunday, October 8, 2023


 8/10/2023 The Wild Trout Currane anglers were all quiet on this bright and sunny day and followed by a light Southerly light and variable wind.      

Saturday, October 7, 2023



7/10/2023 The Wild Trout Currane anglers were all quiet today but personally in my opinion their flies and tries weren’t good enough, thankfully the same couldn’t be said for Ireland as they thrashed Scotland 36-14 in the 2023 rugby world cup this evening in the Stade de France in Paris, I will say one thing it certainly looks like they have a great cast, roll on Ireland. Wind SSE veered South light to fresh with good cloud cover.

6/10/2023 The big flood takes control after yesterday’s 36.9mm of rainfall, on that note we head for the wild Trout results, well I can say without any fear of contradiction that my WhatsApple was all quiet on all flies. Now we head to France for the Rugby World cup, lets hope Ireland take Scotland to the cleaners and Ireland haven’t bugs in their boots. Wind SSW veered S fresh to strong followed by gusts up to 50 km/h and followed by heavy cloud.

Thursday, October 5, 2023



5/10/2023 Lough Currane was on the wild side with strong SW gusts up to 63km/h followed heavy rain early morning and throughout most of the day, so you can imagine my WhatsApple was all quiet.

4/10/23 Well the Currane anglers days are closing in fast with 8 days to go, as you can see in the last couple of days my reports are as slack as their lines, today is no exception. Wind WSW light followed by good cloud cover.

Waterville the wild Atlantic Way

3/10/2023 The Wild Currane Trout Anglers flies and their lines were all slack this day, so you can understand why my WhatsApple was all quiet and if this is false news I will update you in tomorrow’s notes. Wind WNW veered West late this afternoon, followed by the odd heavy shower.

2/10/2023 Mr. Michael O’Sullivan of reports there were a few Trout caught on the drift and going back to yesterday’s manipulations there were a good few Trout caught on the drift and my apologies in the delay on reporting yesterday’s catches and yes guilty as charged. Wind light and variable WSW followed by reasonable cloud cover.
