Ghillie/Guide Vincent Appleby reports on the salmon and sea trout fishing in the past week on the Lough Currane system from his blog at http://wwwsalmonandseatroutphotos.blogspot.com/
31/7/12 Made another flood today, on the sea trout front, Mr. Andrew Brown fishing with his ghillie Mr. Bob Priestley, caught a fine 3 lb. sea trout on the fly, and for the rest of we anglers, yes we failed miserably in our duties.
1/8/12 Made another reasonable flood this morning, so we will head out onto Lough Currane, sadly my noble anglers failed in their duties on the day shift, and on the evening shift still waiting for the odd report, so now we head across the Valley too the River Inny and there was a fine 9 lb. salmon caught by Mr. Michael Roden, as always Michael was fishing with his ghillie Mr. Junior Scully or I should say the King of the River Inny
2/8/12 Mr. Dave Ecclestone of the UK fishing with his ghillie Mr. Vincent O’Sullivan and of www.vincentsfishing.com caught a fine salmon on the fly and finished their day off with 2 fine sea trout in the 2 lb. class, and Dave was telling me that it was wild out there, with a strong WSW wind blowing and he gave Vincent his ghillie full credit for holding the boat in those wild conditions, so he could catch my noble salmon, all I can say praise indeed. Wind as already stated and overcast with heavy showers.
3/8/12 Straight to the action in the salmon department a guest fishing with ghillie Mr. Frank Donnelly and of www.lakelandshouse.com caught a fine 5.6 lb. grilse on the troll, in the sea trout department, Mr. Bill Rushby fishing with his ghillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy and of www.fishingwithdom.com caught a fine 3 lb. sea trout on the fly and not satisfied with Lough Currane, they headed for the River Inny, and Bill caught 2 grilse. Overcast with heavy rain throughout the day.
4/8/12 All the headlines go to 9 Year old Master Pieter Aalberrse of Holland, who caught his first ever Salmon on the troll, with his ghillie Mr. Tom O’Shea and @ [email protected] so congratulations to Pieter and may it be the first of many, now too the sea trout department
