Shaun Hegarty reports that there were very few anglers out at Curragh Springs this past week with the strong winds and heavy rain making conditions both difficult and very unpleasant. Despite the bad weather, the water continues to remain crystal clear with fish spotted in all areas of the lake. Saturday and Sunday were the best days here at Curragh Springs, when folk managed to catch a few fish, taken on the usual small lures along with a few on Buzzers. Favourite patterns this week included Dancer, Damsel, Cat’s Whisker, Nomad and Black Fritz. Our youngest ever angler fished here on Sunday, Charlie Kay who delights in helping his father Paul land Curragh Springs Rainbows. Charlie is only 2 1/2 years old but not one bit afraid to hold the rod when Dad paul hooks into a fish.

Shaun also wishes to let people know that it is well understood at Curragh Springs that both fishing and particularly, times, are a bit hard at the moment. Fuel prices especially are gone through the roof Shaun says, “so if it helps a little we at the fishery will subsidize your travel costs Monday-Friday only. We normally charge Euro 30 per person for a full days fishing, 3 or more persons per car will now get a full days fishing catch & release for Euro 20 per person during the month of February. Our central location and close proximity to the M9 and M7 should make the Euro 30 travel a long way. So go on and give us a call ,we would be delighted to welcome you here at Curragh Springs Fishery”.
