No wind on Currane this week, but no salmon either
March 16th, 2017 | by Myles Kelly
Vincent Appleby reports on another salmonless week on Lough Currane…
8/3/17 There were just two boats manipulating this day and they caught noting for their efforts, though local Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com reported that he caught the odd Kelt. Where the other boat is concerned there was no comment on this Anglers performance, you can say this angler failed in all departments. Now for wind, there was light SW wind and overcast. Amount of rainfall yesterday was 6.1 mm.
9/3/17 There were 3 boats pontificating and manipulating their Rapalas or flies and what can one say on their performance as this is a Family site, I will be as polite as one can be, its simple, their professionalism is on a low even though the lake is high. Wind SE with good cloud cover. Amount of rainfall yesterday 1.1mm maximum air temperature 11.6 c
10/3/17 Again just 3 boats out trying to stalk the wild Atlantic salmon on Lough Currane today and I can say that the anglers were certainly out stalked, so the least said the soonest mended. Wind SW light to fresh and overcast with misty rain. Amount of rainfall yesterday 2.5 mm. Maximum air temperature 13.7 c.
11/3/17 The talk of the day was the weather and for good reason, it was a cracker of a day with bright sunshine with reasonable cloud cover at times and a nice breeze from the SW. There was a nice few boats out manipulating and stimulating the Currane waters, but all to no avail because my Noble anglers couldn’t stimulate their flies or their Rapalas to attract the Wild Atlantic Salmon. Wind as already stated, amount of rainfall yesterday 1.2 mm. maximum air temperature 11.3c.
12/3/17 Lough Currane was all quiet on the SW front. Just for the record there were 3 boats out and going by all accounts all anglers failed miserably in their duties in all departments so the least said the soonest mended. On a personal note it would be great to see a few more boats out there. Wind, there was the odd violent gust from the NW then veered SW light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover. Amount of rainfall yesterday 6.5 mm. Maximum air temperature 12.9 c
13/3/17 There was just two boats out and both failed miserably in their duties with rod and line and last but not least they failed to let their fingers do the talking at the end of their day, the only excuse they may have is that they were too embarrassed to admit their failures. Wind SW light and overcast.
14/3/17 Local Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com reported that there were 4 boats out and I will finish today’s notes on a quote from local Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com the same result as yesterday. Wind SW light with reasonable cloud cover. Amount of rainfall yesterday 0.5 mm. Maximum air temperature 12.7c
15/3/17 There were just a few boats out and I’m afraid it’s back to the fishing school of technology for the lot of them as they all failed miserably in their duties in all departments, so on that note we will head for the Gospel of fishing! firstly don’t bull shit! secondly don’t exaggerate your catches! And last but not least never get caught out on you’re 3 major fishing sins of the day! Wind SW light and overcast with rain at times. Amount of rainfall yesterday 1.1mm. Maximum air temperature 13.2 minimum 8.2c.
