Angling guide Vincent Appleby reports from Lough Currane from his blog at

20/3/12 We Anglers were soon brought down to earth today after yesterdays excitement, yes you have got it, all quiet on the SW front. Wind S then veered SW fresh and overcast.

21/3/12 Not a lot to be said, Wind SW light and overcast with light rain at times.

22/3/12 There were a few boats out manipulating, but sadly my Noble Angler couldn’t stimulate my noble salmon into action. Wind SE fresh and overcast with light rain.

23/3/12 It was a wild day on Lough Currane with a strong SE blowing across the lake, and I can tell you it wasn’t long before the anglers rods were stimulating with my noble salmon, first in the striking zone was local ghillie Mr. Mike O’Dwyer, who caught a fine 7 lbs 10 ozs salmon on the troll on the south side, now we head to the North side, where Mr. Alastair Dunbar of UK caught a 7.5 lbs  salmon on the fly at the Ledge, fishing with his ghillie Mr. Vincent O’Sullivan and of

Alastair Dunbar from the UK with a nice salmon from Lough Currane.

24/3/12 All quiet on the SW front. Wind SE fresh to strong.

25/3/12 The same results as yesterday in all departments except wind SE light with bright hazy sunshine all day.

Updated 28 March: Blazing hot days with little to no wind, need I say more because my Noble Salmon has spoken or I should say he didn’t.

That is your ration for this week, from your Gillie/Guide and the Waterville fishery. No Spin No Fly’s just facts.
