Kevin Lyons reports on a party of Dutch party of anglers who fished on waters near Melview Lodge in Longford
Joop from Holland who stayed with Kevin and Jane at Melview Lodge last year decided to bring with him friends Guus and Philip, they managed some good fish.
Kevin said considering the weather conditions on some of the days and high water levels the lads done well putting together some nice catches of Bream, Hybrids, Roach and Tench. I even had the pleasure of fishing with them one of the days and put together a nice catch of around 30lb of mainly Roach and Hybrids, a great holiday enjoyed by all so see you next year lads.
The Loughs, Rivers and Lakes in and around Longford are still high for this time of year. However some good fish are being caught with weights being around 30 to 40lb, at the time of writing the weather has shown some improvement so we will see how the lads get on when we report on them next week.
