Mr. John Fielding 
2/9/15 Straight to the action in the Salmon department, UK angler Mr. John Fielding, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com caught a fine 12 lbs Salmon on the troll and finished their day off  with 3 fine Sea Trout ranging from Junior class up to 3 lbs. and just for the record all the Sea Trout were put back to fight the elements of the spawning streams. Now to the C&R fly department, Mr. David Burton of the UK, fishing with his Gillie Mr. Tom O’Shea of www.flyfishingatloughcurrane.com  caught 3 Sea Trout to his rod, ranging from Junior class up to 3 lbs. Now to the evening shift, this evening Mr. Liam Ellis and Mr. John Holsted, caught a fine 5 ½ lbs. Sea trout, which was sportingly put back to fight another day. Now to the apology department, on the 29/8/15 I went to the Higher lakes where there was some great fishing but when it came to the reporting or I should say the spelling of the anglers good names I failed miserably in my duties so lets put the record straight and I will let the plaintiffs put the record straight in their words. Hi, great report however both names mentioned were misspelled.
Matt Whiteley should be Matt Whitelaw
and Tony Gibbins should be Toby.

1/9/15 There wasn’t any white horses on Lough Currane today and for good reason it was like a Millpond, even though there was odd breeze  coming from the North and the only boat to register was Mr. John Fielding, who caught 1 Trout while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com In the words of one prominent Gillie, Its hard out there and there is no argument to that.

31/8/15 Straight to the Bungalow and the C&R Sea Trout fly department, Mr. Arnold Slater, while fishing with his Gillie Mr. Neil O’Shea of www.oshealoughcurrane.com caught 5 Sea Trout , ranging from Junior class up to 4 lbs. Now we cut right across the Lake to Coffee’s Bay, Local Angler Mr. Liam Ellis caught and released a fine Sea Trout on the drift, in the 3 lbs. class. Now to the department that you all like and yes you have it, I have been criticised for my bad quotations by  Ring of Kerry Rok Equestrian Centre and for good reason, I was politely told that when I say the Lake was like a Milk pond this is incorrect and the proper saying is, the lake was like a Mill Pond and I stand corrected. I will finish today’s notes by saying Tally HO  Wind calm this morning and fresh Northerly in the afternoon with reasonable cloud cover with the odd light shower.

30/8/15

30/8/15 Lough Currane was all quiet on the SW front in all departments and to be fair to my Noble Anglers there wasn’t  much wind and what wind was there was light and variable with plenty of sunshine. So we head for the backdate department and I was sent a picture of a fine catch of a Salmon and Sea Trout caught on Lough Currane in the past week.

Matt
A fine Sea Trout caught on the fly
29/8/15 We start on the upper Lakes and Lough Derriana and the C&R fly department,  in the last few days Mr. Toby Gibbins and party from Co Mayo have had fantastic fishing with 80 Juniors caught and a few nice Sea Trout in the 2 lbs class and not satisfied with that they came down to the Big Lake/Lough Currane and showed the rest of the angling community how it should be done in style, yes you have it, today they were fishing in the hired out boat department of www.oshealoughcurrane.com Mr. Matt Whitelaw of West port Co Mayo, caught a cracker of a specimen 6.56 lbs. Sea Trout out at the Sisters on a size 8 Alexandra fly, on a floating line and just for the record Matt would have released this fine fish but again sadly this fish was damaged in the gills. Staying with the Co Mayo anglers in the last few days they have had some good baskets of Sea Trout taken from Lough Currane from Junior class up to 2 lbs. For the rest of the Lough Currane anglers there wasn’t a murmur from their reels or their mobiles today but at least the paparazzi was in full swing on his Silver wing Honda. Wind SW light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover at times

28/8/15 The 2015 ‘Currane Championship’

28/8/15 Lough Currane was on the quiet side in all departments so we will go back to yesterdays fine catch and for good reason, Rory didn’t catch his Salmon on Lough Currane in actual fact he caught it on Copal Lake and in my opinion this makes Rory’s catch even better, because there isn’t many anglers if any that have caught their first ever Salmon on the fly on Copal and especially at the grand old age of 15. Wind W fresh with reasonable cloud cover. Message from www.loughcurrane.com
