Vincent Appleby reports from Waterville:

2/10/19 Just two boats manipulating their flies on the Currane Waters this day and my mobile was quiet on all fronts, but I can tell you the majority of the local Currane anglers were tying their boats down in anticipation of storm Lorenzo and expecting gusts up to 130 km. So as you can appreciate my net might be down tomorrow evening. Wind SE with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterday weather, maximum air temperature 14.9C.

3/10/19 Lough Currane was quiet on all fishing fronts this day and for good reason, as you all you know Storm Lorenzo has a big mouth and today Lorenzo ruled the Currane waves as the Currane Sea Trout Anglers showed their respect to Lorenzo and went down to the their local Watering hole. As you can imagine the mighty Guinness rules that department. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 14.5C.

4/10/19 Storm Lorenzo was like Elton John and his candle in the wind and one should be grateful for small mercies. On that note we head out from the North Shore and the bungalow. Currane Sea Trout Fly Angler from Co. Cork, Dr. Tim O’Connor, caught  3 Juniors, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of  Wind NW fresh with reasonable cloud cover.
