Chef Martins
10/7/2024. Straight to the apologies department and for good reason, I failed miserably in my duties and as you can see by the picture, Currane angler, Chef Martins was one happy Currane angler yesterday, after catching his first Salmon/Grilse while fishing with his good friend and fellow chef and renowned Currane angler, Tam.

9/7/2024. Straight to today’s action, report by Justin.

 Hi Vince, At least 2 grilse caught on the troll, one angler celebrated his first ever Salmon on Currane after many attempts, a few trout caught on the troll and 1 on the fly. One angler reported catching a smolt on the Butler pool this morning but sadly it had returned early from the sea because it was covered in miniature sea lice, the trout was destroyed. Very upsetting to see, no wonder the Waterville anglers want the fish farms closed down, one question I was told that the Deenish fish farm was closed down 7 years ago due to over stocking, but I was told it’s still producing salmon pending appeal, surely it should be closed pending an appeal??? Something stinks here. Regards Justin.

Wind light NNE followed by reasonable cloud cover at times. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall trace, amount of sunshine 4hrs.9mins, maximum air temperature 17.2c.

7/7/2024. No reports on the Salmon and Sea Trout front, one must appreciate   that Lough Currane needs a good flood, if there were a few fish caught fair play to them. Now to yesterday’s backdate and for good reason, I got quite a few texts asking where did I get this report? yes I failed to mention that I poached it, as the Currane angler said, everything comes to those who wait as he netted his fish.

6/7/2024. My WhatsApple was very quiet this day but as I always say that doesn’t mean My Noble Salmon wasn’t caught and I have been proven correct I think and the proof of the pudding is in the eating of, so we will head for the backdate department and let the Stranger in the night have his Currane facts of the week.
