24/9/16 Again the weather was on the wild side on Lough Currane with a strong SW gale blowing down the lake, but this didn’t deter some anglers heading out and producing the goods in the C&R department, Mr. Martin Coveney, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com caught a cracker of a 10 lbs. Salmon on the troll and sportingly released his catch and for the rest of the participating anglers, the least said the better. Wind as already stated. Just for the record www.met.ie was spot on with their forecast, will give you the amount of rainfall in tomorrows notes.

22/9/16 All the action came from the South side and in the words of Mr. Frank Donnelly the Commander-in-chief of www.lakelandshouse.com and I quote, in your backdate department, County down boys left yesterday 3 days fishing, 2 hired boats, averaged more than 20 juniors, to each boat each day.
I myself fishing with 15 year old Mark Whelan caught his first salmon on the fly and two sea trout at one and half each. All I can say is congratulations to Mark and welcome to the big time. Now for the rest of the Lough Currane news, well there isn’t any, except the wind was strong this morning blowing down the Lake, in my opinion strong wind or not a lot of anglers were River Inny bound, all I can say is I hope their reels were louder that my iphone. Here endeth today’s News.
May it be the first of many

|Lough Currane in calmer waters|
20/9/16 There was only one Star angler today on Lough Currane and that was 15 year old Marc Whelan of Dublin, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com Caught his first ever Sea Trout / junior on the fly and it wasn’t long before he followed it up with a another fine Junior, so congratulations to Marc and may it be the first of many. Now we head across to the South Side and the hired out boat department of www.lakelandshouse.com Mr. Niall O’Hearcain and his good friend, caught 6 Juniors on the drift. Now for the rest of the angling news, well there isn’t any for the simple reason the rest of the participating anglers failed miserably in their duties in all departments, so on that note we go to quote of the day and that goes to local Gillie Mr. Terence Wharton Jnr, I ain’t out in that pond, I’m fishing for a Lobster, Cheers!! Wind SW light with good clod cover with the odd light shower this afternoon.

19/9/16 UK fly angler, Mr. Nigel Henshaw, while fishing with his Gillie, caught 1 Junior and finished their day with a fine 2 lbs. Brown Trout. For the rest of the angling community, they failed miserably in their duties in the procuring of a wild game fish, or were they trying to camouflage their misgivings for the lack of fish, so they could exaggerate their catches in the back bar. Wind NW light with good cloud cover.
