3/10/18  Currane fly anglers were looking for wind first thing today so they could present their selection of flies, but as the day went on they couldn’t make it a point to entice a Sea Trout to their droppers, but after a hard season they are exonerated of any criticism. Wind W then veered SW light to calm at times and overcast. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 14. 3 c

4/10/18 The Currane anglers fly reels were as quiet on all fronts but as I say that, news just in, two Swedish fly anglers, while fishing with their gillie Neil  O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com caught two Sea Trout on the drift.

7/10/18 The Currane anglers had a rough day of it and for good reason, there was a strong SW wind blowing down the lake and I can tell you only the odd couple headed out and going by the phone there was little caught. Wind as already stated and overcast.  Yesterday’s weather,  maximum air temperature 12 . 3c .

8/10/18 Again the Currane Sea Trout fly anglers were let down by the weather and with a strong SW wind blowing down the Lake, that’s not surprising that their fly reels were in a silent mode on this wild day on Lough Currane and if there were any boats out there, again it would only the odd couple. Wind as already stated and overcast. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 15. 1 c.

9/10/18 The Currane Sea Trout fly anglers called it a day even before their casts were tied this morning and for good reason, there was a strong SW wind blowing down the lake and with Storm Callum approaches Ireland fast there is a good chance Currane anglers will have another forced bank holiday in the last few days of the 2018 Season. Wind as all ready stated and good cloud cover. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 15.2 c.

10/10/18 Waterville fishery was at a standstill and the upper Lakes and Lough Derriana were just as wild and in the words of Local Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com No good, Strong SE wind blowing and that sums today’s action, you could say it was all wind and staying with the wind,
