Vincent Appleby reports on the week’s fishing in Waterville:

 

18/9/19 Well my sun it was like this all day, as my great Grandfather would say, a picture tells a story and as for the wind there was barely enough wind to blow a candle out and if one want’s to be specific, light and variable with clear blue skies. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 17. 9 c.

17/9/19 Overcast this morning but come midday clear blue sky’s with light to calm and variable wind was the order of the day, but this didn’t deter Wicklow Currane fly Anglers, Mr. Peter Hughes and his good friend Currane fly Angler Mr. Vincent McConnell, from manipulating their flies and catching four Juniors for their efforts and considering all the elements were against them and their www.lakelandshouse.com Guide, they did well!
