28/6/16 It’s the early Shift that catches the Lough Currane fishing news. A guest caught a fine Salmon while fly fishing with his Gillie Mr. Dominic McGillicuddy of www.fishingwithdom.com and for the rest of the angling fraternity they failed miserably in their duties to activate a wild Atlantic Salmon or a Wild Atlantic Sea Trout and if they did they failed to report their catches. Wind WNW fresh and overcast this morning with reasonable cloud cover in the afternoon.
