8/10/15 Just like to say Yesterday I failed to mention the most important two of young James’s Family and that is his two young Daughters, all I can say is sorry for that, but you can say one thing my friends, your Dad James may be gone but not forgotten.

Now as promised all the facts of the last two days. 7/10/15 Mr. Sean Brick of Tralee, while fishing on Lough Derriana with his Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of caught and released a fine Sea Trout of 3 lbs. Now we head down stream to Lough Currane on the 7/10/15 UK angler Mr. Sea Smith, caught two trout, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of 8/10/15 UK angler Mr. Sean Smith, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of again caught two Trout to his rod and just for the record Sean had a good battle with a Lough Currane Game fish in the past few days and his Gillie reckoned that Sean’s fish was in double figures, but the fish won the day. Wind South light with reasonable cloud cover.

7/10/15 I missed yesterdays notes because of the sad news that Mr. James O’Sullivan of Waterville, past away suddenly. James is the Son of local Gillie Mr  & Mrs. Vincent O’Sullivan and not forgetting his Brother Vincent and Sisters, Sonia, Gemma and Marita and all their family and on behalf of all the good people of Waterville and Caherdaniel and the whole of Co Kerry I send our deepest sympathies to all the O’Sullivan Family. Well James you may have left this beautiful fishery but I will always remember seeing you fish off Darby’s Island trying to catch that Salmon. I will put all the fishing facts in tomorrow notes.
