Those were the days.
4/3/15 There were just two boats manipulating on this day and the only bit of action was in Bob Priestley’s boat, who sadly lost a Salmon on the troll in the 8 lbs class. Just for the record I got these facts from Mr. John Foley of Beenbane, Waterville, who I might add, is a good Angler himself as well as a Honey producer and his reputation speaks for itself in the Honey Department. Wind  W and moderate with reasonable cloud cover.

3/3/15 The statistics are the same as yesterday. On the lazy articles front, I had an email asking why the hell don’t I get off my own backside and get out there yourself, fair comment but I have a perfect excuse my boat is in dry dock for repair, need I say more. Weather the same as yesterday.

2/3/15 My Noble Anglers are getting lazy, no boats were out from the North side, I can’t speak for the South Side but going by the wind, there was a gusty NW blowing, so I doubt if there were any boats out fishing down the South Side? if they were, they failed to let their fingers do the talking. All I can say to all you anglers, how do you expect to keep the great reputation of the great Waterville Fishery if your warming your backsides by the fire in these cold conditions. Wind as already stated with a good few winery showers, which I might add makes for good fishing, you lazy articles.

The wild Atlantic Ocean

1/3/15 March got off to a blustery start with the wind from the West and there were a good few wintery and very cold showers. When it came to letting the fingers do the talking, on the days action or lack of it, one Gillie replied, up the Irish. Yes you have it, they were more interested in the sport of the Six Nations Rugby than in the sport and art of catching My Noble Gentlemen the Salmon and as Her Majesty once said, we are not amused.

28/2/15 Just one boat ventured out from Waterville Boats and at first thing this morning and within a hour My Noble Angler had to batten down the hatches, head into land because all hell let lose with a wild SW blowing down the lake as you can see by the picture they tell the story of the day.

27/2/15 Again the weather takes the headlines with a strong SW wind. There was only one Boat reported out from the North Side, fishing out of Waterville Boats and at and no reports of any rod benders. Wind as already stated and overcast with heavy showers.

Happy Birthday Glenda 
26/2/15 Lough Currane was on the quiet side in all departments, be it fish or angler. To be honest it would be nice to see a few more boats out there because you can be dam sure they won’t take a Black Russian, they prefer a Hairy Mary. Wind NW and gusty with a mixture of rain and hailstones. On the Breaking News front, I would like to wish Glenda Powell World Champion Fly Fisher a very Happy Birthday for tomorrow and that’s all from and the Salmon and Sea Trout Readers and all the good People of Ireland.
