Vincent Appleby reports from Waterville:

2/8/19 We’re into the August Bank Holiday weekend and the Currane Anglers fishing script is getting as difficult as a rising wild Atlantic Salmon or Sea Trout and that sums up today’s Currane Angling News. Wind SE light to fresh with good cloud cover. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 18.8C.

3/8/19 All the action comes from the World Famous Butler Pool and at www.watervillegolflinks.ie  Argentina take all the Salmon headlines on the Waterville Salmon Fishery today and for good reason. Young Currane fly Angler, Laurita Peralia caught and released his first ever Irish 5lbs. Salmon and may it be the first of many and congratulations. I went downstream and all the Currane Anglers reactions were negative so we will stay up stream and stay positive! Wind SE light to moderate with good cloud cover followed by the odd shower. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 19.4C.

4/8/19 All Salmon headlines are in the trolling department. Dr. Tim Gleason, caught a fine 6 ½ lbs. Salmon/Grilse while trolling with his Gillie and for the rest of the Currane Anglers it was all quiet on all fronts. Wind SW light and very heavy showers and the Mountains Streams were bursting. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 19.0C

5/8/19 There was a nice flood on the Inny yesterday, so you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know where the majority of the Currane Anglers were today ? Or should I say the C&R Inny Anglers who I might add were as quiet as the Currane anglers if you get my drift. And on that note we will head for “those were the days” on the River Inny and if you can’t remember what a good Inny Salmon looks like here’s a picture of My Mother in the Butler Arms Hotel holding a fine 12 lbs. salmon that she caught on the Inny in 1965. Wind strong SW with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterday’s weather amount of rainfall 18.8 mm. Maximum air temperature 17.7C.

6/8/19 The Currane Anglers were all quiet on all fronts or is it they have caught the River Inny C&R syndrome, so will they stay all quiet on all fronts. Wind SW fresh and overcast. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 18.3C.

Sunset

7/8/19 Lough Currane Anglers were all quiet on all fronts and maybe for  good reason, there was still a nice drop of C&R water coming down the Inny, so on that note I will let you all use your own fishing experiences and knowledge where you should be fishing, I would be fishing my Barbless Fly, if you get my drift! Wind West light and sunny and warm. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 18.1C.
