Vincent Appleby reports from Lough Currane…

3/9/2021 We start by winding yesterday’s reels in on the World-famous Butler Pool and at and for good reason, Currane fly angler Mr. David Morrissey caught a fine 5 ½ lbs Salmon. Now we again head upstream to Lough Currane and today’s lack of action and in the words of one top Gillie and I quote No Fish No Wind No good and the picture tells today’s story.

4/9/2021 The Waterville Fishery was all quiet on all fronts this day. Wind SSE light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover.

5/9/2021 Just a few boats out manipulating the Currane waters on a very overcast day with a SSE wind light, by all accounts their lines were slack.

6/9/2021 Mini heat wave hits Currane anglers this day with blazing sunshine from midmorning, followed by a light SSE wind and variable and all communications were all silent, mind you there could be some breaking news with the evening shift so watch this space.

7/9/2021 Just one boat out on this hot day as the sun blazed down on the waters of Lough Currane, the only savour was there was a nice ESE light breeze. So, you do not have to be a rocket engineer to know today’s results plus the Vodafone lines were all slack and here endeth today’s Currane notes.

8/9/2021 There were four boats today and it was the Currane fly Trout anglers that were manipulating their skills and for their efforts they caught a few Juniors and bagged a few Brownies and that was their ration for the day. Wind East and veered Southeast light and variable and overcast with rain coming in tonight and the possibility of flash floods as you can see by the yellow warning for the Currane forecast


9/9/2021 The Waterville Fishery was all quiet on all fronts this day. Wind NW light and followed by showers.
