Hard fighting Mayo pike provide the sport !

Fisheries Information Manager Markus Müller reports on the Pike fishing in Mayo:

During the week, German TV journalist, Frank Meissner, visited North Mayo to try some flyfishing for pike. He was joined by German countrymen, Bernd and Sebastian Taller. The three anglers were successfully guided by local guide, Kenny Sloan, who took them out on a nearby pike water. Soon after the group had set out, Frank had his first Irish pike on fly followed by a good few more later in the day.

The group changed methods in the afternoon and managed to catch four more pike spinning and dead baiting from the shore. Unfortunately, they didn’t land a trophy pike of one metre plus, but had many fish up to 85cm and are very keen to visit Mayo again next year targeting a big one.

Excellent sport on the fly: hard fighting Mayo pike!
