Salmon and Sea Trout report from the waterville Fishery
<p>16/3/09 There was a nice southerly wind blowing across the lake, plus there was good cloud cover, air temperature 11.3c, but alas we Anglers drew a blank but it was a different story at Waterville's St Finian's Parish Church which was celebrating 150 years, and the reason I mention this is because Mr Michael O'Sullivan represented we Anglers by presenting a fly rod at the altar to the Bishop of Kerry the very Rev Bill Murphy. 17/3/09 It may have been St Patrick's day but I can tell you that we anglers had nothing to celebrate in the Salmon department. Bright sunshine all day, wind SE fresh to strong. Max air temperature 16.8c. 18/3/09 the same today as yesterday, in all departments. Air temperature 18.9c. 19/3/09 Another bright sunny day and very little action and what would you expect with real bright conditions all I can say is thank God we anglers always have a good excuse. Wind SE light to fresh, max air temperature 17.7c.20/3/09 Well it may have been bright and sunny and a strong SE wind blowing and very little chance of a Salmon but you try and tell that to Mr Walter Rushe of Switzerland who caught a lightening fresh 10lbs Salmon on the troll on the North side with his Gillie Mr Frank Donnelly of WWW.Lakelandshouse.com and I would like to quote Frank, I don't know what you Gillies are complaining about, its just my third day out on the Lake and my client catches a fine Salmon, all I can say is, you must have the wrong lures. Wind SE fresh to strong this morning and light to calm this afternoon, max air temperature 16.6c. 21/3/09 Well there may well have been action yesterday, but my Noble Salmon left all the action to the Irish rugby team who were playing at the millennium stadium in Cardiff and won the Grand slam for the first time since 1948 so congratulations to them, and I can tell you there were quite a few liquid libations consumed so it wouldn't surprise me if there is a lack of boats on Lough Currane tomorrow? Wind NNE light to fresh with reasonable cloud cover, max air temperature 11.5c. 22/3/09 Our Manger Mr john Murphy and of www.Loughcurrane.com reported to me that there were two salmon caught on the troll, one by Mr Terence Wharton Jnr and his weighed in at 10lbs and a Cork angler fishing by himself. Bright sunshine through out the day, Wind NW then veered NNW late this afternoon and by 5.45pm the Lake was flat calm, air temperature 11.5c. That's all the news from your Gillie and the Waterville Fishery. No Spin No Fly's just Facts.
