Lough Currane and River Inny updates from Vincent Appleby…
24/8/18 Air temperatures plummeted and Lough Currane fly anglers blood pressure rises, so you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that it was all quiet on the SW front. Wind NW fresh and overcast with the sun breaking through at times with the odd heavy shower. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 16.1C.
25/8/18 The Chaplin Festival had a full cast today, but sadly the same couldn’t be said for the Lough Currane anglers, as their lines were slack and as you can see the wild Atlantic Game Fish didn’t perform to their usual standard for the lack of rain. Talking of rain Waterville will get a down pour early tomorrow morning. Wind South fresh and bright and sunny but come evening there was good cloud cover. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 15.3C.
26/8/18 Lough Currane Anglers reels were as silent as the Charlie Chaplin movies and I can assure you the Lough Currane Anglers weren’t laughing. But it was a different story in Waterville where there was plenty of Charlie’s and good crack as you can see by the photo. Wind NW fresh and overcast and just for the record it did make a small amount of rain but not a lot going by my boat. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.0C.
27/8/18 Renowned Caherciveen Lough Currane angler, Mr. Steven Donnelly takes all the fishing headlines and for good reason while trolling with his good friend Mike, caught a 4.lbs. Salmon. For the rest of the Lough Currane Anglers it was all quiet on the SW front. Wind NW fresh with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterday’s weather amount of rainfall was 9.2 mm ? Maximum air temperature 16.9C.
28/8/18 Lough Currane Anglers were all quiet on the SW front in all departments. Wind SW fresh and overcast and light to heavy rain this evening and cleared by 9pm. Amount of rainfall 4 mm give or take. Staying with the Weather www.met.ie are say warmer weather’s on the way so click this link, seeing is believing. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 16C.
