Vincent Appleby reports from Lough Currane…

11/5/2022 All the Game fishing action comes from Vincent’s Harbour and renowned all-round angler and Guide on the Waterville Fishery the one and only Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of caught and released a fine 4 lbs. Seatrout while trolling today. Now to the Spring Salmon and the Brown Tag saga ended on a stalemate today to the best of my knowledge and if I’m wrong, I can say without any fear of contradiction those Brown tag anglers failed miserably in their duties. Now joking apart as from tomorrow Waterville Fishery is back to where it should be with all rods firing, so come on down and let battle commence. Wind NW light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover and followed by the odd shower.

12/5/2022 The Currane anglers were all quiet on all fronts this day in all departments. WSW light to fresh with good cloud cover followed by the odd shower.

13/5/2022 Renowned Currane fly angler Mr. Markus Kruse of Germany, while fishing with his Gillie, caught a fine 8lbs Salmon on the fly and for the rest of the Currane anglers they were all quiet on all fronts. Wind W light with good cloud cover.

14/5/2021 Straight to the action and great news to hear that the first Grilse was caught on the fly on the Southside of Lough Currane in Edere Bay by Local Gillie Mr. Bob Priestley, Bobs Grilse was in the 6 lbs. class and for the rest of Currane anglers they were all quiet on the SW front. Wind SW light and bright and sunny all day.

15/5/2022 The Currane anglers were all quiet this day in all departments. Wind SE light and variable, bright and sunny for most of the day.

16/5/2022 There was just the one boat out this day manipulating the Currane waters and what a cracker of a day for renowned all round Currane angler Mr. Andy Wishart from Northern Ireland and for good reason, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of caught 3 Salmon all in the 9 to 10 lb class, two were caught on the troll and one on the fly, sportingly released two Salmon and finished their day off with a fine 2 lbs Sea Trout. Andy’s quote of the day, I can say the Lonesome boatman and I didn’t have a lonesome day in the Salmon or the Sea Trout department today and there’s no argument to that. Wind SSW and variable with reasonable cloud cover.

17/5/2022 We start in the number of boats out on the waters of Lough Currane today, there were two and that’s a fact and the other fact is that Northern Ireland and Currane angler Mr. Andy Wishart caught a fine 10 lbs Salmon on the fly, with his Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of again one can say that Andy and Dominic weren’t lonesome in the Salmon fly department. Now to the apology department, yesterday Mr. Andy Wishart sent a fine picture of his fine 10 lbs. Salmon which I failed miserably in my duties because I failed to put it up with the report, I Checked text and WhatsApp but failed to check my email. Wind SSW and veered South late in the afternoon with good cloud cover.

18/5/2022 The Currane anglers headed out on to the rough waters of Lough Currane and come lunch time they called it a day and headed for calmer waters like the high stool. Wind SSE wild, followed by heavy showers.
