24/9/16

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.

Red sky in the morning Shepherds warning
 An old wives tale, well think again
23/9/16 Lough Currane was on the wild side with a strong SW gale force wind blowing down the lake and very few boats ventured out from the North side, so on that note we head across the Valley to the River Inny and going by my secret service there was no rod benders reported and if this is not the case you can say without any fear of contradiction my secret service failed miserably in their reporting duties. Now to the weather alert from www.Met.ie There is a yellow alert  for rainfall Warning  for Galway, Mayo, Cork and Kerry, Over 25 mm likely in a 12 hour period, locally up to 40 mm in mountainous areas. Note that this is an update to the previous warning to include county Mayo in the risk area.

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.
Mark
May it be the first of many
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.

Lough Currane in calmer waters 
21/9/16 Local Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com reported that Lough Currane was on the wild side this morning, so very few anglers if any ventured out. But come lunch time the wind had dropped and the sky cleared, a few anglers put their flies across the Lough Currane wave, but to no avail, so on that note we will head across the Valley to the River Inny and one angler takes all the Salmon headlines and that is UK angler Mr. Michael Fish and for good reason he caught himself a fine 12 lbs. Salmon and for the rest of the angling community, lake or river Angler, you all failed in your duties and going by my secret  service the majority of Lake Anglers headed for the Inny this afternoon, because there was a nice drop of water coming down the Inny after the heavy rain this morning. Wind SSW wild then veered NW light come lunchtime.          

20/9/16

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.

You have a better chance with a floating line !
18/9/16 Lough Currane was on the quiet side as fly anglers changed their flies and their fly lines from floating to intermediate with no immediate effect and by the end of the day you can say without any fear of contradiction, with no effect at all and as I say that I have just received a Text from local Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com and I quote, Bob and Roman from Luxemburg caught 3 Trout on the fly with me. So on that note we go to the backdate department of the hired out boat department of www.Lakelandshouse.com yesterday, Mr. Steven Nation and Mr. P Murphy, caught 8 Juniors on the drift. Now for a bit of stand up comedy, today I received a photo of an Angler trying out new supposed life saving gear and going by the photo my advice is stay in the Fishing shed Lads. Wind North light with reasonable cloud cover and the odd shower.
