Ghillie Vincent Appleby reports on the salmon and sea trout fishing in the past week on Lough Currane from his blog at http://wwwsalmonandseatroutphotos.blogspot.com/
16/4/15 A low Lough Currane was in bright sunshine all day with a cloud hardly insight, as we anglers know experience tells us there isn’t much chance of procuring my Noble Gentlemen the Salmon, well Lady’s and Gentlemen think again because renowned Dutch Anglers, Mr. Tim Van Der Laan and Mr. Ger Jager of Amsterdam, rewrote the rules with 2 fine Salmon caught on the troll, Tim caught a fine 12 ½ lb. salmon while fishing with his ghillie Mr. Terence Wharton and Tim’s good friend Ger, caught a fine 11 lb. salmon on the troll, while fishing with his ghillie Mr. Terence Wharton Snr. Wind W and light.
17/4/15 Lough Currane was on the quiet side in all departments, meaning to say all Anglers failed miserably in their duties. On the weather front there was reasonable cloud cover with a light westerly blowing down the lake.
18/4/15 My Noble Salmon were in a taking mood this morning, both North and South. We will start on the North side at the Bungalow, Mr. Alan Sheil fishing out of www.butlerarms.com Caught a fine 8 lbs. Salmon on the troll, as his Father, Mr. Leslie Sheil and Alan’s Son Cameron watched with envy and pride as their ghillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com dispatched their Noble Salmon. Now we head over to the South side, the Dutch Flag was flying high again because Mr. Tim Van Der Laan caught another cracker of a Salmon on the troll in the 12 lbs. class. While Fishing with his ghillie Mr. Terence Wharton Snr. Now to the apology department, on Tim’s last fish that he caught, I stated that he was fishing with Terence Junior which was incorrect, Tim was Fishing with Mr. Terence Wharton Snr, sorry for this discrepancy. Wind ESE light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover at times.
19/4/15 Weather is to blame ? for the little or no action in all departments, well that is the anglers opinion, if the Wild Atlantic Salmon could speak he might say, if you anglers presented your Lures in a more enticing manner you might see a bit of action and I have spoken by the authority of my fingers. Bright sunshine with a light S wind then veered W.
Axel ZurBrugge with his ghillie Neil O’Shea and a nice salmon
22/4/15 Mr. Axel ZurBrugge of Germany and fishing out ofwww.butlerarms.com caught a fine 9 lb. salmon on the troll, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea ofwww.oshealoughcurrane.com and for the rest of the angling community they failed miserably in their duties in all departments. Wind SE light to fresh with bright sunshine all day.
