Vincent Appleby reports from Lough Currane…
2/6/21 Just one lonesome Currane angler manipulating this day and nothing for his efforts on this opening day for the hotels and bed and breakfasts as they open their doors Now we head for the weather. Made a nice drop of rain and there was a reasonable flood on the Inny. Wind NNE light and veered NW light and overcast and humid.
3/6/21 Currane anglers were all quiet but as I say that a few Currane anglers converted to the Inny C&R anglers, and it was not long before a fine 7lbs. Salmon was caught on the spin, plus there was one lost. Wind light to fresh SW and overcast all day with light rain.
4/6/21 The Currane anglers were all quiet on all fronts this day as we head into the holiday weekend, so let’s hope the Currane anglers from every County comes down and show their skills in the art of flyfishing and trolling and it would be great to get a few C&R photos or videos and show your art in the Salmon and Sea Trout film department. Wind SSE fresh to strong at times and overcast and followed by downpours.
5/6/21 There were 11 boats out manipulating this day and by all accounts their lines were slack and going by my WhatsApp you can say the Currane Anglers were frustrated with today’s lack of action. Wind SW light and bright and sunny.
6/6/21 There were 7 boats out and nothing to report for their efforts, but to be fair to the Currane anglers there were light winds from the NW then veered SW light and bright sunshine all day, so on that note we will head for the River Inny where the sun was shining on one angler, while on the spin caught and released a fine Grilse.
8/6/21 Straight to the dirty rotten thieving light handed rotter who stole the oars from my boat, talking of knocking someone when their down! Just for the record they are of sentimental value need I say more. Now for today angling news and sadly there were only two boats out and nothing to report. Wind light and variable
9/5/21 The Currane anglers were all quiet on the Currane waters this day and for good reason, they had their C&R Inny hats on because there was a nice flood coming down the Inny, I find it surprising that there was no mention of any C&R Wild Atlantic Salmon, it sounds like Rivergate, I will leave it to your experience and imagination. Wind SSW light and overcast and very humid. A video worth watchingwe might learn from this video
