Vincent Appleby reports from the shores of Lough Currane:
9/7/20 All quiet on Lough Currane today after yesterday’s big flood, but to be fair to the Big Lake it would be on the dirty side and experience tells us the Currane Anglers put their River Inny C&R Hats on and headed for the C&R Inny, I will leave the rest to your imagination. Wind NNW light with reasonable cloud cover at times. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 15.7 centigrade.
10/7/20 Here is today’s Salmon and Sea Trout news on the Waterville Fishery, all quiet on the Southwest front, or you could say that I’m like Manuel of Fawlty Salmon and Sea Trout, I know Nothing. Wind NNW light and sunny. Yesterday’s weather, maximum air temperature 16.6 centigrade.
11/7/20 Today on the No Spin No Fly’s Just Facts zone, are in Memory of Jack Charlton RIP. Big Jack as he was known was without any fear of contradiction a great Irish Football manager and legend as well as being a World Cup Winner in the 1966 World Cup. Jack’s second love was fishing, so on behalf of the Currane Anglers of the Waterville Fishery and all the good people of Ireland, we send our Sincere Sympathies to all his family and friends.
