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…
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 www.fishingwithdom.com . Just for the record there were a few Kelts caught today. Wind SE fresh with good cloud cover.
16/3/15 There was a good bit of action on Lough Currane today and here are the facts of the day. In first place with a cracker of a Salmon was Co Wexford Angler, Mr. Michael McCormack ( bassanglingireland.ie) fishing in the hired out boat department of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com 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.
That is your ration from the last week on Lough Currane, from your Gillie and the Waterville Fishery, no spin no fly’s just facts.
