Vincent Appleby reports from Lough Currane…
24/7/20 Well the Waterville Fishery may have reached 1,000,000 hits on the Worldwide Web yesterday; all I can say going by my mobile the Currane Anglers had no hits or strikes in the fishing department today. Wind light West Southwest followed by light misty rain throughout the day. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 16.9 centigrade.
25/7/20 There were a few boats out manipulating their flies and fair play to them there were a few baskets of Sea Trout caught. Wind West light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover, followed by the odd shower, humidity 86%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.4 centigrade.
26/7/20 All quiet on the Southwest Front in all departments. Wind SW light to fresh and overcast all day with rain in the afternoon, humidity 95%. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 17.1 centigrade.
27/7/20 Made a good flood last night so you do not have to be a rocket scientist to know that the Currane anglers put their River Inny hats on and as usual it’s all classified info on the Inny C&R department. Wind Northwest fresh with reasonable cloud cover. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 16.5 centigrade.
28/7/20 By all accounts the Currane anglers were all quiet on all fronts, to be fair I’m sure again they all had their Inny hats on, staying with the Inny the forecast is good because there is a good flood expected tomorrow with a good Inch plus forecasted and you can be sure the Inny Anglers will be silent but their reels will be bellowing through the Inny Valley? Wind NNW light and variable. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 16.8 centigrade.
29/7/20 The Weather takes control as the rain lashed down on the Waterville Fishery all day and just for the record there were four boats out on the lake, there were no reports of any rod benders and for the rest of the angling community I’m sure they were manipulating their angling skills on the River Inny. Wind Southeast fresh and veered Southwest this evening and is still raining at 23:20. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature of 16.6 centigrade.
