No Good No Fly's! 
23/4/17 There were six boats manipulating this day and I can say they failed miserably in their duties in all departments, but to be fair first thing this morning the lake was calm when the wind eventually did come it was light to calm from West with reasonable cloud cover at times. Come evening my Noble Anglers headed for the Bars and Swallowed their beer down fast and contemplated on their failures and as you can see by the picture, Swallows have a big talk too!

Axel ZurBrugge 
22/4/17 We start with the Sad news that Lough Currane has lost another great Angler, Mr. Jim Linehan of Kanturk RIP Co Cork and Ballinskelligs, sadly past away yesterday and on behalf of all the anglers of Waterville and the good people of Kerry we send our sincere sympathies to all his Family and friends. Jim Fished Lough Currane for many years and loved fishing out on the Sea especially Ballinskelligs Bay and not forgetting the Lakes of Killarney, all I can say is one thing, Jim you maybe gone but you certainly won’t be forgotten. Now today’s action and it all comes from the Bungalow, German angler, Mr. Axel ZurBrugge fishing out of the Butler arms   caught a fine 9 ½ lbs. Salmon on the troll, while fishing with his gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of and for the rest of the angling community they just watched with envy. Wind W light to calm this morning and light to fresh in the afternoon. Yesterdays weather . Maximum air temperature 15.7c.

21/4/17 The weather takes all the head lines again today which is not surprising with the sun blazing down on Lough Currane, as you can see by the photo. Anglers that were out manipulating with their flies and lures, can say they are exonerated from criticism for the lack of fish   without any fear of contradiction and as I always say a picture always tells the story. Just for the record there were 4 boats out and there was a light wind from the West. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 15.6c.

Lough Currane this morning

20/4/17 Lough Currane was like a mirror this morning with bright sunshine, it was good to see 10 boats heading out, but they had to wait for a bit of a breeze which eventually came in the afternoon from the West, come 5 pm this evening their Boats were as empty as when they left their port of call and as you can see the pictures tell the story and confirms my Noble Anglers are exonerated for failing in their duties in  procuring a Wild Atlantic Salmon or a Specimen Sea Trout. Wind as all ready stated. Yesterdays weather, maximum air temperature 13.3c

Anglers take note there is great satisfaction in C&R
18/4/17 Lough Currane was on the quiet side after the Easter Bank holiday weekend in all departments, but there was a bit of excitement around the Holly Island sometime today as a gillie and his client drifted in the Commeragh, boats watching from a distance new they were into a good fish? but as they got closer after about 20 minutes, they could see that the Gillie was on his mobile as his client waited patiently for him to finish his conversation and to carry on fishing. All I can say is some phone call some Gillie. As promised here is the photo of the Salmon being released by Mr. Matthew Solon on Sunday with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of Wind light to calm with good cloud cover. Yesterdays weather, amount of rainfall 0.1mm. Maximum air temperature 12.0c.

Michael and Matthew about Release their Salmon.
17/4/17 Straight to the hired out boat department of Mr. Michael Solon of Co Clare caught and released a fine 10 lbs. Salmon, caught on the fly, while fishing with his Son Mr. Matthew Solon. Now to the trolling department, Mr. Michael Mymes, fishing out of Waterville Boats and at with his Gillie Mr. Bob Priestley, caught a fine 9 lbs. Salmon and staying with Michael, I head for the clerical error department, yesterday I reported that Mr. Michael Mymes caught a Sea Trout on the fly this was incorrect, it was caught on the troll and I can tell you this, it was made quite clear to me by the Commandeering-in-Chief of Waterville Boats and at so my apologies for that. Wind NW light to fresh with good cloud cover. Yesterday’s weather, amount of rainfall 0.1mm. Maximum air temperature 13.4c.
