Hans, Fred, Wolfi and Joseph from Germany enjoyed a week’s Pike fishing at Melview Fishing Lodge, with the exception of Joseph they are no strangers to Ireland. Fishing both hard and soft baits along with some dead baiting produced a good few Pike however a lot of smaller Pike seemed to be in the feeding mood, a couple of big Pike were hooked but managed to avoid capture.

This never bothered the guys as they were always in good humour and just looked forward to the next day’s fishing, for Joseph it was his first time to Ireland as a treat for his 60th birthday. Kevin said, the guys were always on a high and it was a pleasure to have them stay. See you next year guys and thanks for some great company.

All fish returned unharmed.
