Vincent Appleby reports from Lough Currane…
30/7/21 Just two boats out and they had nothing to report for their efforts this day. Wind NW light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover. Just for the record there were heavy showers this morning.
31/7/21 Well the last day of the month and the Currane anglers reels were allegedly all quiet this day, you could say their flies are landing on the dry ledges, normally where the Salmon and Sea Trout would be roaming around, in normal conditions the Currane Angler and his Gillie would be manipulating their flies for that rise but sadly the Currane anglers and the wild Salmon and Sea Trout are all on strike due to the lack of water. That sums up this Month, all I can say is no comment.
1/8/21 A new day and a new month and sadly there isn’t refreshing news as we all know the Currane Anglers waiting patiently for the Waterville Fishery to be refreshed and if there were fish caught this day it would not surprise me because there is rain on the horizon, how much that’s another story and you can see for yourself by going to Met Éireann, put in Waterville. Wind North light with reasonable cloud cover.
2/8/21 August Bank holiday Monday was all quiet in all departments. Wind was light to calm as you can see by the photo of Ballinskelligs Bay.
3/8/21 In the words of one Currane Angler, 6 boats out and I can tell you the water is very warm, it’s like being in a bath. That sums up today’s body odours, a heavy shower would be far better if you get my drift. Wind South and variable with reasonable cloud cover.
4/8/21 Lough Currane Anglers were all quiet in all departments going by mobile technology. Wind SSW light and variable with good cloud cover and very humid and thunder storm are forecasted plus the whole of Ireland is on a yellow thunder storm warning followed of flash floods, a possibility but if you go by the rainfall forecasted for Lough Currane it’s not looking good ?
