Vincent Appleby reports on the last few days (fishless) at Lough Currane…
21/1/16 Sadly the weather is taking all the headlines today, with a strong Southerly cutting across the lake with light misty rain all day. Just for the record one could have fished the South Side but I didn’t get any reports from any manipulators.
22/1/16 Lough Currane was on the wild side with a strong westerly blowing down the lake this morning and as you can imagine all boats were in dry dock for most of the day, the reason I say this, the wind did soften in the afternoon but with all that, there were no reports of number 2. So on that note we will head for the South Shore, where 3 fine spent Trout, which I might add looked in great condition, were caught, and yes all were put back.
23/1/16 Here is your weather report, wind SW strong with light misty rain all day. Just for the record there weren’t any boats fishing out of the North Side and if there were any boats fishing South side, they didn’t report any action.
24/1/16 This is getting monotonous ! The weather takes all the headlines again with all Salmon stations closed and for good reason, there was a strong SW wind blowing and I’m sorry to say the Met Éireann forecast isn’t much better for next week.
That is your ration from the opening days on Lough Currane, from your Gillie and the Waterville Fishery, no spin no fly’s just facts.
