Vincent Appleby reports from Lough Currane…
23/4/19 The Currane anglers had a feeling of optimism today over yesterday’s Fish Farm News, but sadly today their optimism didn’t bear any fruit in the Wild Atlantic Salmon and Sea Trout department!! Wind SE light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.6 c.
22/4/19 The Lough Currane Anglers you could say had a good day in the Farmed Fishing department so just click the link https://www.irishexaminer.com/breakingnews/ireland/kerry-fish-farm-licence-discontinued-after-probe-919283.html?fbclid=IwAR16_AgQ
So on that Note we will head for the Wild Atlantic Currane Salmon and Sea Trout and sadly it was all quiet on the SW front. Wind Southerly light to fresh with reasonable cloud at times. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 12.1 c.
21/4/19 The Currane Anglers couldn’t crack any Salmon this Easter Sunday be it on the fly or troll, you could say the Wild Atlantic Salmon and Sea Trout kept their Eggs intact. Wind, light Southerly. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 15.1 c.
20/4/19 All the action comes from the North Shore and the hired out boat department of [email protected]. Renowned Northern Ireland and Currane Angler Mr. Andrew Wishart takes all the Salmon headlines and tells in his own words so its over to Andrew.
‘Hi Vincent, Andy Wishart here, left saintfield County Down at 5 am this morning arrived in Waterville at 11. 30 am, out on lake 1 pm, caught a 10 pound salmon on the troll at 1. 15 pm and thanks to Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com (who I might add was having lunch at the holly and netted fish for me). Went to lobster to watch the rugby but unfortunately Munster couldn’t complete what would have been a perfect day’.
Wind light SSE and bright and sunny all day. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 18.9 c.
19/4/19 For starters it was a Good Friday for the wild Currane Salmon and Sea Trout and a hard day for the Currane Anglers as they tried their best in all departments to rise and lure those mighty Wild Game Fish but to no avail. Wind SSE light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 20.4 c.
18/4/19 Today wasn’t a good Thursday and for good reason, temperatures skyrocketed up to 22 c with clear skies with light to fresh winds from the ESE. All we can hope for is that tomorrow will be a Good Friday and as we all know it certainly is, but will it be in the Salmon and Sea Trout department? Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 15.6 c.
17/4/19 All the Salmon and Sea Trout headlines come from the North Shore, so straight to the action and to renowned Currane fly angler Mr. Phil Staniford, who was in flying form today, while fly fishing with his gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com caught a cracker of a 12 lbs. Salmon and Phil finished his day off with a fine C&R 3 lbs. Sea Trout, I’m open to correction but I believe that’s the first Sea Trout caught on the fly this season? For the rest of the Currane Anglers it was all quiet on all fronts. Wind SSE light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterday’s weather maximum air temperature 14.1c .
