11th June: What can you say about the Lough Currane pro Anglers and amateurs, its simple they are failing miserably in all arts of game fishing ie Wet fly, Dry fly and dapping the fly and trolling, last but not least the Black Birds Fancy, so as you can imagine their topic of conversation as they drink their pints this evening was on their failures of the day and if its not, it dam well it should be. Wind South and light with good cloud cover with misty rain throughout the day.

12th June: Here are the Salmon and Sea Trout results from the Waterville Fishery, Salmon and Sea Trout won, my Noble Anglers lost and failed miserably in their duties in all departments. Wind West light with good cloud cover.
