25/5/17 You certainly can’t knock a good fly angler down and German angler Mr. Markus Kruse is a perfect example of that today and for good reason, he caught a cracker of a 11 lbs. Salmon on the fly while fishing with his Gillie and on that note I will finish this evenings notes in the words of Mr. Markus Kruse, and I quote, well its first class fly-fishing at this lovely place! I replied, can I put that up on the Blog and he said of course, that’s the reason why I’ll always read your Blog. Looking at what’s happening during the day. All I can say is thanks for that. Wind SE light with reasonable cloud cover at times and very warm. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 0.4 mm. Maximum air temperature 16.7c.

24/5/17 Breaking News on the Butler Pool this evening

Markus
Breaking news just in from the world famous Butler Pool and at www.watervillegolflinks.ie  renowned UK fly angler Mr. Sean Smith caught a fine 5 lbs. Salmon on the fly, while fly fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com    

24/5/17 Straight to the fly and Salmon and Sea Trout department, all the headlines go to German angler Mr. Markus Kruse and for good reason, while fly fishing with his Gillie, Markus caught and released a fine Sea Trout in the 4 lbs class for starters and finished his day off with a fine 5 lbs. Salmon. Now for the rest of the angling news there isn’t any for the simple reason they failed miserably in their duties, a few  lessons from the Gillie wouldn’t  do any harm. Wind SSW light and come evening strengthened to light to fresh with good cloud cover all day. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 0.3mm. Maximum air temperature 16.3c.

22/5/17 All the headlines go to renowned fly angler Mr. Michael Smith of the UK, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Nile O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com caught and released a fine 4lbs. Sea Trout on the drift and for the rest of the angling community their mobiles were as silent as the Lambs and their heads were bowed down as they headed for the Bar for their nightly inquest on their efforts this day and they could only come to one conclusion, that again we have failed miserably in all departments and I concur.

19/5/17 What can one say about the Lough Currane anglers this day, well its simple they all failed miserably in their duties in all departments and as one gillie said this evening, what do you expect from we fly anglers, miracles! I replied no Salmon actually! mind you, a wing and a prayer is no harm, so make sure your flie has a good wing and as you look to the heavens your prayers might be answered, but a word of warning be careful as you look up to the heavens you could miss a rise of a life time. Just for the record there were about 5 boats manipulating. Wind NW light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover plus a few showers, yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 4.6mm, maximum air temperature 13.0c.
