An unnamed angler while fishing with his Gillie caught two Sea Trout in the 2 to 3 lbs. class on the fly.. Wind NE fresh with reasonable cloud cover.
17/6/16 There was some good fishing on Lough Currane today so straight to the action. We start at the Top of the Lake. An Italian Angler fishing with his Gillie Mr. Terence Wharton, caught 2 Grilse on the Troll both in the 4 lbs. Class and finished their day off with a Sea Trout. Now we head down the North shore and into the bungalow where Northern Ireland Angler, Mr. Stuart Millen, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com caught a fine 4lbs. Grilse on the fly. Now to the hired out boat department of Waterville Boats and at [email protected], Northern Ireland Angler, Mr. Gavin Wishart, while fishing with his Uncle, Mr. Andrew Wishart, caught a 4 lbs.

19/6/16 In the www.lakelandshouse.com hired out Boat department where Mr. Phil Hawker caught a fine 4 lbs. Grilse and Mr. Alan Donoghue of Dublin, caught 1 Sea Trout/Junior and just for the record both were caught on the fly. I will put the rest of today’s action or the lack of it in the words of renowned Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com, “No need for the paparazzi today, blown off the Lake at Lunch time, gale force SW wind with heavy rain”. Just for the record it has made a flood, how big will be interesting to see. The reason I say this is because I’m sure the land will take a fair bit of it as its very dry. There was 33.1 mm of rain.
20/6/16 Straight to the artists of the Sea Trout department. UK Angler Mr. Lindsay Richards of Chester, while fly fishing with his Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com caught two fine Sea Trout both in the 2 lbs. class. An angler fishing on the River Inny caught a Salmon in the 9 lbs. class on the fly. Wind NW light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover with light misty rain this afternoon at times.
21/6/16 Straight to the fly department, Mr. Peter Liddell, Fishing out of www.butlerarms.com and fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com caught 2 fine Grilse ranging from 3 lbs. up to 4 lbs. Just for the record the 3 lbs. Grilse was returned to tell the story of his battle to freedom. Wind SW light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover and staying with the weather even though it made 33.mm of rain, the dry land took the most of it and Lough Currane only rose by a few inches
