Mr. Dan Sugrue R.I.P.
26/4/15 Anglers again looked up to the Heavens today and for good reason, sadly I have to report that Waterville has lost another great Angler, Mr. Dan Sugrue R.I.P. Of Tralee and Waterville who sadly past away today and on behalf of all the Anglers and the good People of Kerry, I would like to send our Sincere  sympathies to all his Family and friends. On a personal note, Dan was a great all round Game Angler and as a youngster I had some great fishing days with Dan, on Lough Currane and the River Inny and I must tell you one good story about Dan when he was in his early twenty’s in the sixties, he went up to his Uncles Pool on the Inny and had six casts and six Salmon, He had two more casts and caught nothing, turned to his Uncle and said, this is no good, I am leaving and going up to the next Pool and sadly Dan you have left us and I sure you are casting your Flies on the upper Heavenly pools.

On today’s Angling News on Lough Currane there isn't
any, so the least said the better. Wind E fresh and bright sunshine all day.

25/4/15 My Noble Anglers failed miserably to manipulate or stimulate any action in their boats, be it fly or on the troll and in the words of Local Gillie Mr. Terence Wharton Jnr, no fish Man, just a dirty black East wind out there and overcast.

Neil, Axel. 
21/4/15 It was nice to see a bit of fire on Lough Currane today in the trolling department and all the Head lines go to German anger, Mr. Axel ZurBrugge, fishing out of who caught a fine 7 ½ lbs. Hatchery Salmon on the troll, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of and just for the record Axle’s  Salmon came in a good few weeks ago, is their a change coming, or is there a few more fresh Wild Atlantic Salmon entering the Lough Currane System ? Only time will tell, or put it this way something is on the change ? Wind S light to fresh with bright sunshine all day.

20/4/15 All fly and trolling reels quiet on the SW front, so the least said the soonest mended. Wind SW fresh with reasonable cloud cover. Because of the lack of excitement on the water front, we will head for the Great Fire of Caherdaniel and the great work that the Kerry Fire Service do in protecting the local community and the pictures tell the story, there is just one point I would like to make, you stupid idiots who start these fires, all you do is put the lives of the Fire Service at risk and all the houses and the good people who live in them, and thanks for nothing.
