September 30th, 2015 | by

Ghillie Vincent Appleby reports on the salmon and sea trout fishing in the past week on Lough Currane:

23/09/15 There is only one boat that takes the headline and that is the boat of Mr. Michael Smith and his Son Sean of the UK, while fishing with their Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com I start in their Salmon department, Sean caught a fine 8 lbs. Salmon as his proud Father looked on, but not to be out classed it wasn’t long before Michael himself was in battle with a fine Sea Trout and as his Gillie netted Michael’s fine 6 ½  lbs. Specimen Sea Trout he said that’s one for the record books, well Michael quickly informed Neil that his Sea Trout was going back, Anglers take note. Just for the record Michael and Sean finished their day with a Junior. And for the rest of the angling community there was no comment. Wind West fresh with reasonable cloud cover. Now as promised the names of the anglers that caught 5 Salmon out of Waterville Boats and at  watervilleboats@gmail.com Mr. Trevor Dewberry, Mr. Nigel Henshaw, and last but not least Peter Ruffle all from Hampshire in the UK and their catches are as follows, 3 Salmon on the fly and two on the troll, ranging from 4 lbs. to just under the 6 lbs. class.

24/09/15 Straight to the catch and release department, fishing out of the Bungalow Mr. Peter Liddel was in cracking form in the fly department  with two Salmon ranging from 7 lbs. up to 8 lbs and finished his day off with 2 Trout, all while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com Staying in the fly department, Mr. Tommy Duggan and his Grandson Tom Nugent of Kilkenny, were also in cracking form with two Salmon, Tommy caught a fine 8 lbs, Salmon and his Grandson finished the day off with a cracker of a Salmon in the 12 lbs. class with any luck will have pictures tommrow.

27/09/15 UK fly angler Mr. Sean Smith caught a fine Sea Trout, I can’t give the exact weight because I deleted  his Gillie’s text but if my memory  serves me right it was in around the 4 lbs. class and if I am wrong I’m sure his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com will give me a diplomatic kicking, else where, UK Angler Mr. Ken Towner, reported that the fishing conditions were better than yesterday but still hard going but at least Ken did have a good battle with a Sea Trout but sadly the Sea Trout won the day and that was his ration for the day and for the rest of the angling community, it was all quiet on the SW front. Wind SE fresh.

28/09/15 Lough Currane was on the wild side with a strong SE wind blowing down the lake and in the words of local Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com just got one Trout and it was hard work out there so on that note we will head for the upper lakes and in the words of local Gillie Mr. John Murphy, on Cloonaghlin today
Lovely conditions. Some brown trout but no sea trout, disappointing. Just for the record the photo was taken by John himself.

29/09/15 Straight to the C&R Sea Trout department, Mr. Paul Amos, caught a fine 3 lbs Sea trout on the drift, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Junior Scully, also in good form with the fly were UK anglers, Mr. Michael Smith and his Son Mr. Sean Smith caught 5 Juniors, while fishing with their gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com and last but not least Pat and Ann Curran while fishing with their gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com  caught 1 Junior which was sportingly released to fight the 2015 spawning grounds and for the rest of the angling community they ether failed to catch or they certainly failed to let their fingers do the talking at the end of their days manipulation. Wind South fresh with reasonable cloud cover.

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