From Eureka Lodge, Caherdaniel, angling guide Vincent Appleby reports on the past week’s fishing trends on the LOUGH CURRANE system:

17/1/12 Now down to today’s facts, Lough Currane got off to a fine start with a fine salmon just under the 8 lb. class, caught on the troll by Mr. Dermot Devereux fishing with his ghillie Mr. Neil O’Shea and of and not satisfied with that they put their rods out again and contacted another, but sadly my noble gentlemen came off, and this evening Mr. Dermot Devereux and his Gillie headed for the Waterville Inn to receive The Paddy Carey Memorial Cup and a fine gold watch, and in the words of Shakespeare today’s catch was what you would call poetic justice, Nice one Paddy your Nephew did well. Wind S fresh and overcast with rain for most of the day.

18/1/12 All quiet on the SW front today except for a few kelts caught on the troll.

19/1/12 There were 4 boats manipulating on Lough Currane today be it fly or troll all failed miserably in their duties, on the kelt front just the the odd one or two caught.

20/1/12 just two boats out all they reported were a spent trout and one or two kelts caught. Wind west light to fresh and overcast in the afternoon.

21/1/12 There were a few boats out, but the only bit of action they reported was in the Kelt and spent Trout department. Wind WNW fresh and overcast and cold.

22/1/12 All quiet on the SW front except for odd kelt and spent trout being caught. That is your ration for this week, from your ghillie/guide and the Waterville fishery. No Spin No Fly’s just facts.
