Hilda, Queen of Derriana
21/4/14 Again my noble anglers failed in all departments this Easter Monday, Wind NE fresh to strong and overcast with rain late this afternoon. Now we will head upstream to Lough Derriana, I will let the King 0f Derriana tell his and her story in their own words and I quote, Hi Vincent here’s a picture of my wife Hilda’s first time fishing. On her second cast she caught these 2 nice brownies on her own choice of flies (Red Ass Green Peter and a Jungle Bunny) we had great fun on Derriana at Easter. Tight lines Vincent from cork. Mr. Derriana :-)

20/4/14 Lough Currane was blazing with bright sunshine, with a light north-easterly blowing down the lake, yes you have it, my Noble Anglers failed miserably in their duties in all departments, Talking of blazing sunshine as the sun set  the Lobster Bar lantern brightened up the Village of Waterville and good crack was had by all this Easter Sunday    
Mr. Tim Shea takes the limelight at the Lobster

 Mr. Mike Sheehy
19/4/14 This Easter Saturday you could say there was Salmon on the wing. In the Salmon department, Mr. Mike Sheehy, fishing with his Gillie Mr. Junior Scully, caught a fine 10 lbs Salmon on the troll. Now to the Noble Goose department, the picture tells it all, or you could say a wing and a prayer. Wind SE light with bright sunshine.

The one that got away
