Vincent Appleby reports from Lough Currane…

6/5/22 There were four boats out manipulating their skills this day and sadly their lines stayed slack. On the weather front, there was reasonable rainfall this morning but didn’t last long come afternoon it was bright and sunny. Wind light to fresh WSW and veered WNW in the afternoon.

7/5/2022 The Currane Anglers were all quiet on all fronts this day.  Wind Southeast and veered SSW light with reasonable cloud cover at times.

8/5/2022 All Salmon headlines come from the North shore and Vincent’s harbour. So straight to the action, Currane Brown Tag Man, while fishing in the trolling department with his Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of caught a cracker of an 11lbs salmon and as other anglers looked on they saw the Brown Tag Man’s Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy net his fine 11lbs Salmon. You could say they were Browned off. Wind South and veered SSW light to fresh with good cloud cover.

9/5/2022 They Say you can’t keep a top-class angler’s fly reel from singing the Currane anthem and today was a perfect example of that and you don’t have to be a rocket scientist to whom I’m writing about and yes you have it, the renowned flyman, Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of while fly fishing with his Brown Tag client caught a fine 9 lbs. Salmon and finished their day off  with a fine 3 lbs. Sea Trout which is great news to end on today’s notes. Wind SW fresh to strong followed by heavy rain at times.

10/5/2022 The Lough Currane anglers were all quiet on all fronts this day, but there is some good news tomorrow as I’m sure you all know it’s the last day of the Brown tag saga. So to all you fortunate anglers that won a Brown tag and haven’t ventured out, tomorrow is your last chance at the old Currane saloon. Wind SW fresh to strong at times followed by the odd heavy shower and overcast all day.
