Vincent Appleby reports from Lough Currane
21/2/20 Lough Currane Anglers headed straight for the high stool for a large whisky in the jar, as SW gales hammer Lough Currane. Those are the facts of the day and all I can say to you all you readers are, you can’t blame the Currane anglers and you certainly can’t blame the Salmon. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 7.1 mm. Maximum air temperature 10.3c.
22/2/20 Lough Currane was still on the rough side, but this didn’t deter the Currane Anglers from heading out, all I can say is they battled the elements but they didn’t conquer the wild Atlantic Salmon. Wind WSW fresh to strong and overcast, followed by heavy showers. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 11.3mm. Maximum air temperature 11.4c.
23/2/20 There were a few boats out, four to be exact and sadly the Currane Anglers were all quiet on all fronts. Wind SW light and overcast followed by light rain at times. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 11.3 mm. Maximum air temperature 12 c.
24/2/20 There were four boats manipulating this day and sadly the Currane anglers’ reels were all too quiet for their liking on all fronts, that sums up today’s action. In scoring terms, you could say Currane anglers 0 the Currane Wild Atlantic Salmon won. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 6.9 mm. Maximum air temperature 12.2c.
25/2/20 Lough Currane anglers were at a standstill with a strong WNW wind blowing followed by violent gusts with the heavy wintery showers, plus a mixture of hale, sleet and snow this morning and much of the same in the afternoon but not so violent. That sums up today’s lack of action in the Wild Atlantic Salmon and Sea Trout department. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 11.0 mm. Maximum air temperature 11.7 c.
