Vincent Appleby reports from Lough Currane…
17/6/20 Here is your meteorological report for Lough Currane. Wind Northeast light with reasonable cloud cover at times, humidity 79% and for the rest of the Currane Anglers news, all quiet on the Southwest Front. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 15.5 centigrade.
18/6/20 Good news on the Weather front? The Waterville Weeping vase is expecting 21.8 mm of rainfall over the weekend? All I can say is its better than nothing. On today’s manipulations all quiet on all fronts. Wind North with reasonable cloud cover at times. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 14.8 centigrade.
19/6/20 Well the Grilse secret is out, I can say without any fear of contradiction the Currane Grilse Anglers have failed miserably in their duties in reporting their catches, because in the week or two there have been a few Grilse caught on the troll and all I can say is fair play to a North Kerryman for letting the Grilse out of the Net, sadly it wasn’t on our Net first. Now for today’s action all quiet on the Western front, you have my permission to contradict today’s notes. Wind Southwest light to fresh with good cloud cover. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 15.1 centigrade. Just for the record Kerry is on a Yellow weather warning plus there is strong wind forecasted.
20/6/20 The Currane anglers celebrated with a sparkling water as the Southerly gale’s and rain lashed down on the Waterville Fishery, I do not want to sound pessimistic, but it will be interesting to see how much rain fell before their sparkling water go’s flat, I hope it stayed sparkling. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 15.7 centigrade.
21/6/20 Well at last we got a flood, as you can see it wasn’t that big going by the pictures, but it will be interesting to see how much the Lake rises in the next two days, plus there is more rain forecasted this coming week. On the Salmon count today the Currane Anglers were all quiet this Father’s Day and today’s notes are in memory of past Currane Dad’s. Wind Southwest fresh with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 15.7 centigrade.
22/6/20 All quiet on the Southwest Front in all departments this day on Lough Currane as light rain fell for the best part of the day in a fresh wind SSW. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 16.0 centigrade.
23/6/20 All the Salmon Headline News comes from the World Famous Butler’s Pool and at www.watervillegolflinks.ie Professional Golfer, Mr. Liam Higgins, caught a fine Salmon Grilse on the fly. So straight to quote of the day, that’s tonight’s dinner sorted, All I can say is enjoy! Wind South Southwest light and overcast with light rain for most of the day. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 15.4 centigrade.
24/6/20 Made a good drop of rain last night which was no harm. Wind was light and variable from the Northeast to the Northwest. The Salmon were staying deep and putting the Currane Anglers in deep deep Salmon depression. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 14.9 centigrade.
