Vincent Appleby reports from Lough Currane…

28/4/21 The Currane anglers were all quiet on all fronts on this calm day. As you can see by the photo of the Bull Rock, Lough Currane is really low. So you can appreciate why the Currane Anglers are at an all-time low and that’s no Bull. Wind NNE light with reasonable.

29/4/24 There were 3 hand me down Brown tag exclusive boats out manipulating their lures this day and sadly no Brown tags were used. Wind NNW light mainly bright and sunny with the odd light shower.

30/4/21 Lough Currane may be low, but the good news is that Local Gillie Mr. Vincent O’Sullivan and his Son in law Tam were on a high and for good reason, while trolling caught a cracker of a Salmon in the 10 lbs class and I can say Tam and Vincent were the talk of the Salmon community, so congratulations Vincent and Tam and fair play to you Vincent you haven’t lost the art in catching my Noble Salmon in virtually hopeless conditions.

1/5/21 Four Boats out, their order of merit is as follows, one Brown outright winner and 3 hand me down Brown tag anglers and all I can say is their Brown tags weren’t used this day. Wind SSW light with reasonable cloud cover followed by the odd shower.

Calm before the storm

2/5/21 Only three boats out on this Bank Holiday weekend, sadly nothing to report this day and on the eve of a yellow wind and rain warning for Kerry and it will be interesting to see if we get the big flood we need, so click here you might be disappointed because the rain fall isn’t that great, they are forecasting 12.6 mm?  just for the record there were 3 Brown Hand me down Tag boats manipulation. Wind NNW and veered SSW light and sunny all day as you can see by the calm before the storm picture.

3/5/21 All the Brown Tag and Barbless Salmon stations were closed as a strong SW wind took control and veered WNW strong with violent gusts.
