25/01/2016: No reports of any rod benders and going by the Lough Currane secret service there weren’t any boats out there, all I can say is you lazy articles. Wind West fresh with plenty of sunshine and staying on the weather front its wild tonight and going by the forecast the chances are that there will be no fishing tomorrow.

26/01/2016: All Salmon stations were closed on Lough Currane this morning, due to storm force winds from the SW, come afternoon it was calm. There were no reports of any action on the afternoon shift. Staying with the weather the Valentia Observatory has recorded 238.1mm of rainfall so for the month.
