Vincent Appleby has the news from the last week on Lough Currane where the salmon were providing regular enough sport until the last couple of days…

Eric Jouen of Waterville with his 7lb salmon

12/3/15 All the Head lines go to Mr. Eric Jouen of Waterville and at[email protected] who caught a fine 7 lbs. Salmon on the troll and added a good few Kelts to his collection this morning before his luck changed. I was talking to Dominic McGillicuddy in side Mace Supermarket in Waterville he asked, anything caught, I replied Eric caught one, what about you? He replied nothing, as you can see I’m buying fish fingers. All I can say it’s a sad day when a Gillie has to buy his own fish fingers to keep his moral up, Ha-Ha me harties Captain Dominic has spoken. Wind strong W then moderate this afternoon with good cloud cover.

13/3/15 They say Friday the 13th  is unlucky, well local angler Mr. Tam Hitmiangsong would beg to differ and for good reason he caught himself a fine 9 lbs. Salmon on the troll. Wind W light with bright sunshine all day.

14/3/15 Mr. Hughie Reed of Ballinskelligs takes all the Salmon head lines on Lough Currane today. Hughie caught a cracker of a Salmon weighing in at 11 ½ lbs. On a Rapala on the troll while going by the Bridge. There could be one more to report I will update you as soon as I have the facts. Wind SW light to calm and variable with bright sunshine.

15/3/15 The only bit of action was in the boat of Mr. Andrew Wishart of Northern Ireland, who caught a fine 8 lbs. Salmon on the Troll, while fishing with his gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of . Just for the record there were a few Kelts caught today. Wind SE fresh with good cloud cover.

In first place with a cracker of a Salmon was Co Wexford Angler, Mr. Michael McCormack ( fishing in the hired out boat department of caught a fine 10 lbs. Salmon on the troll, along the North Shore. Local Angler Mr. Brod O’Sullivan had a good fish on, but My Noble Salmon won the day and just for the record there were a few Kelts caught. Wind SE light and overcast.

17/3/15 St. Patrick takes the headlines with the Waterville parade and where the St. Patrick’s Anglers are concerned they failed to locate my Noble Salmon, need I say more and if there were any fish caught they failed to let their fingers do the talking. Little to no wind with bright sunshine.

18/3/15 All quiet in all departments including the weather, it was a nice spring day and quite warm. There was no wind this morning and a light westerly in the afternoon.
