Vincent Appleby reports from Lough Currane where the weather has been windy…
5/2/20 The Currane Anglers were all quiet, be it fly or troll. Wind SE light and overcast. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 10. 1 c.
6/2/20 The Lough Currane anglers are still waiting to crack the ice as storm Ciara approaches this weekend, just for the record it’s a yellow warning according Met.ie Wind SE light to fresh and overcast all day. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 9.6 c.
7/2/20 The Currane Anglers were at a standstill as Lough Currane was on the wild side with a strong SW wind blowing down the lake and followed by heavy showers and still waiting for the first Lough Currane Salmon of 2020, all I can say is Thank God we Anglers have Patience! Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 9.6c.
8/2/20 Straight to the point, the Currane Anglers were left stranded on all Salmon and Sea Trout stations as storm Ciara takes control of today’s proceedings and for good reason, Met.ie changed it from a yellow warning to an orange warning. Wind SSW and overcast all day. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 9.4 mm. Maximum air temperature 10.9 c.
9/2/20 Storm Ciara takes control of Lough Currane and MET.ie have put a status orange wind warning for Donegal, Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Sligo, Clare and Kerry from tomorrow, 6am to 8pm just click for the facts. So, you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know that tomorrow is another day for the high stool. Wind W strong and overcast with heavy showers. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 21.7 mm. Maximum air temperature 11.3 c.
10/2/20 Storm Ciara still in control of the Currane Anglers and as you can see by these photos, just for the record the photos weren’t taken by me and going by the quality we have a new paparazzi on the books and going by today’s photos he hasn’t gone with the wind. That sums up today’s notes. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 18 mm. Maximum air temperature 12.8 c. Wind NW wild with a mixture of hail and snow showers.
11/2/20 Again Storm Ciara deals up another no go to the Currane Anglers, which isn’t surprising with a strong NW wind and followed by severe gusts at times with wintery showers. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 8.1 mm. Maximum air temperature 8.1 c.
12/2/20 As storm Ciara headed across the Irish Sea, one boat did head out today in a fresh wind from the West but sadly all was quiet on the SW front but to be fair to the lonesome Angler, Lough Currane has been turned over and over like a pancake in the last few days and it’s been reported that Storm Dennis will hit Ireland this weekend. Wind as already stated, overcast all day with heavy showers. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 3.3 mm. Maximum air temperature 7.1 c.
