Les Humphreys, Rodger Beal, Phil Rogers and Tony Clawson were over for their annual fishing trip to Ireland and once again stayed with Kevin and Jane Lyons of Melview Lodge. Four days out of the six they had to fish in high winds, heavy rain and raising water levels, Kevin said this had to be the worst conditions I have seen any of my guests fish in. However despite the bad weather they still managed to catch some good Bream, Hybrids, Roach and Perch during there stay. Prebaiting and fishing only two venues using feeder tactics paid off for them in the end.
Fishing in and around the Longford area has been steady, the bad weather of the past weeks has affected catch weights but the fish are still feeding well. At the time of writing the weather has improved and looks good for the rest of the week so we will wait and see if the catches improve, again feeder has proved the best method along with prebaiting the night before.
The Belgium lads are back for their third time this year to do some course and Pike fishing so tune in next week to see how they get on.
