June 30th, 2015 | by

A pair of French anglers on their first trip to Ireland did quite well considering the conditions and enjoyed their stay with Kevin and Jane at Melview Lodge in Longford…

French anglers Jimmy and Rene enjoyed a week’s Pike fishing with us at Melview Fishing Lodge. The fishing was quite good considering the bright, calm weather. I guided them on the first day to show them around the venue. We only had a few in the morning but it sprang to life in the afternoon producing some nice fish. I even managed to catch a few myself.

The next few days they managed the boat for themselves and caught some good fish, but again mainly in the afternoon when things cooled down.

The last day I guided them once again on a different venue and throughout the day we had fish and lost a good few more. In the late afternoon we fished some very deep parts of the Lough after spotting large shoals of bait fish, and this turned out to be the spot. We continued to troll the area again and again and every time we hooked up to a Pike, and at one stage both myself and Rene hooked up at the same time.

They took a day out from the fishing to sample some of the Irish hospitality and have a tour around, the guys enjoyed their trip very much and we hope to see them back again soon. Thanks guys you were great company.
