31/8/16

31/8/16 Lough Currane was mainly quiet, just the odd Junior being caught, so on that note we go back to yesterday and the C&R department. Mr. Paul Clark, fishing out of www.oshealoughcurrane.com and fishing with his Gillie, caught 5 Sea Trout in the Junior class and finished his day off with a cracker of a Sea Trout of 9 ½ lbs. I must apologise to Mr. Paul Clark and all the readers of this Blog for not putting this fine catch in yesterdays notes. Wind W light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover.

Wind W light to fresh and overcast with misty rain at times this morning.

28/8/16 There were no records broken on Lough Currane Salmon and Sea Trout department, or in the https://www.facebook.com/CharlieChaplinOfficial/?fref=ts  and you can say without any fear of contradiction they have made themselves look like right Charlie’s in all departments and its as simple as Black and White and not much could be said for the Green and Gold either, so the least said the soonest mended. Wind W light with bright sunshine all day.

26/8/16

26/8/16 All quiet on the SW front as the anglers looked to the heavens praying for a rod bender but their prayers weren’t answered, one can only come to the conclusion either they lack the skill in their choice of fly selection or drift or they weren’t praying hard enough and in my opinion they failed in both departments. Wind SW with reasonable cloud cover at times.

25/8/16

25/8/16  My Noble Anglers went out on Lough Currane this day with anticipation with their fly rods at the ready but by the end of their day they headed for the Bars, all they were looking for was Commiserations for their lack of their ability to produce a wild Atlantic Salmon or a Lough Currane specimen Sea Trout and all I can say is you’d want to pull your act together in all departments. Wind SW fresh with reasonable cloud cover with the odd shower.
