It was the first time for Dutch anglers Ronald and Bert, they decided to stay with us at Melview Fishing Lodge in Longford. On arrival it was straight off to visit some fishing venues that I thought would be good for them to fish. They decided to fish the first they were shown for a few hours and later that evening we prebaited the swim.

Some good Tench for first timers Bert and Ronald.

The next couple of days and prebaits produced some great catches of Bream and Tench for them, using various bait cocktails on the hook feeder fished at 30 yards. They took time to take two days out from the fishing to tour around the island, and commented that it was a beautiful country with great scenery and friendly people.
