July 6th, 2017 | by

Vincent Appleby reports from Lough Currane…

30/6/17 All the Salmon and Sea Trout action come from the Bungalow on the North Shore, so straight to the Salmon and Sea Trout department. UK angler Martin Sutton, fishing out www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com caught a fine 4 lbs. grilse on the troll and finished his day off with a fine fly C&R 2 ½ lbs. Sea Trout, all while Fishing with his gillie Mr. Bob Priestley. We stay at the Bungalow and the hired out boat department of www.oshealoughcurrane.com where tralee Angler Mr. Tadhg O’Neil and guest caught two trout on the drift and for the rest of the Angling community there was no comment, I wonder why? Its simple they were ashamed of their inability in producing a wild Atlantic Salmon or a Premier Lough Currane Sea Trout, be it on the fly or troll. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 2.6mm. Maximum air temperature 14.6c.

1/7/17 All the Sea Trout headlines come from the North Shore and the Bungalow, Dublin angler Mr. Enrico Fantasia, caught and released a fine Sea Trout on the drift, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com. Staying at the Bungalow in Neil’s hired out boat Department, Kenmare angler Mr. Mike Hennessey, had a cracker of a day, with 3 Sea Trout ranging from Junior class up to 5 lbs – all released. Just for the record there were a good few boats out but as usual they failed miserably in their duties in all departments. Wind NW light to fresh with misty rain for the most of the day. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 0.4mm. Maximum air temperature 15.2. Amount of rainfall for the Month of June was 141.5 mm.

2/7/17 All the Sea Trout fly fishing headlines come from the Bungalow, Dublin angler Mr. Enrico Fantasia, caught and released another fine 2 ½ lbs. Sea Trout, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of  www.oshealoughcurrane.com and in Neil’s hired out boat department a guest caught two Juniors, which were sportingly put back.  Wind West light to fresh with good cloud cover. Yesterday’s weather; rainfall 2.0mm. Maximum air temperature 15.4c.

3/7/17 Local gillie Mr. Frank Donnelly of www.lakelandshouse.com was in good form in the Salmon department. While trolling on his own, he caught a fine 5 lbs Salmon.

Martin Kearney also fishing from www.lakelandshouse.com, had two sea trout of 2 ½ lbs on Saturday and Sunday. Wind SW light and overcast.

4/7/17 We start at Vincent’s harbour where UK and Waterville angler, Mr. Ken Towner, caught a cracker of a 5 lbs. Sea Trout on the drift. I can tell you Ken was delighted with his afternoon’s manipulations in the Sea Trout department. Two anglers fishing on their own were seen catching a Grilse and a fine Sea Trout on the fly. Retired UK  Judge David Burton has the last say in today’s Salmon department and his catch of the day was a fine 4 lbs. Salmon caught on the fly and you can say without any fear of contradiction his gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com is not Guilty in failing in his duties and the truth of the pudding is in the eating of. Wind SW light and overcast and very foggy this evening. Yesterday weather, amount of rainfall 3.4mm. Maximum air temperature 16.4c.

5/7/17 Judge David Burton and fishing with his Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com  laid the Law down in the Sea Trout department and for good reason, conditions on Lough Currane weren’t easy but the good Judge showed the rest of the Waterville anglers his skills in how to manipulate and stimulate his flies and by doing so caught two fine Sea Trout Both in the 1 ½ lbs class. Wind Light to calm West with good cloud cover. Yesterdays Weather, amount of rainfall 2.8mm. Maximum air temperature 16.1c.

That is your ration from the last week on Lough Currane, from your Gillie and the Waterville Fishery, no spin no fly’s just facts.
