Vincent Appleby reports from Lough Currane
18/3/20 Lough Currane anglers were as calm as the Currane waters and their humour was as light as the wind, but come docking time their language, well that’s another story. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 5.7 mm. Maximum air temperature 12.9 centigrade.
19/3/20 The Currane anglers were all quiet on all fronts. Just for the record there was six boats out manipulating which is great to see. Wind East light with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 8.0 centigrade.
20/3/20 All the Salmon headlines go to Currane anglers Mr. Joe O’Dwyer and his Gillie Mr. Sion Braine and in the words of Sion and I quote, in the boat by 7.30 am. Joe and Sion tag team it again with a fine 10lb Salmon, caught on the troll or the fly, you decide and for the rest of the Currane anglers it was all quiet on all fronts, as you can see by the picture it tells the story of the day. Wind East light, bright and sunny. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 9.1 centigrade.
21/3/20 I will make it short and sweet, the Currane anglers were all quiet in all departments. Wind ESE light and overcast with misty rain at times. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 8.8 centigrade.
22/3/20 There were a few boats manipulating this day but sadly my Noble Salmon were keeping their distance as laid down by the Government. So stay safe Anglers and non-anglers alike. Wind SE light bright and sunny. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 14.3 mm. Maximum air temperature 7.7 centigrade.
23/3/20 A new week, a new strike, yes you have it, local angler Mr. Anulal Hitmiang (Tam) while trolling this morning caught a fine 10 lb Salmon on the troll in a light SE wind and overcast. Yesterday’s weather amount of rainfall 0.9mm. Maximum air temperature 11.8 centigrade. Now we head for the Killarney Lakes and for good reason because it was reported to me that a cracker of a 21 lb Salmon was caught last Saturday on the Middle Lake. Just for the record that’s two Salmon caught in Kerry in the past ten days in the 20 lb plus class.
24/3/20 Currane Anglers were all quiet on the Western frontier. Wind SSE fresh and overcast with misty rain throughout the day. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 10.7 centigrade.
