Fishing in and around the Longford area has been good and has produced some great catches of Tench and Roach along with a few good Bream and Hybrids, however the weather we have had over the past week has caused a lot of the Lakes, Loughs and Rivers to flood.
This has been making things a little difficult for anglers but they have been braving the weather and are still managing to catch some nice fish, the weather is not due to get any better over the next week so we will report on how the anglers at Melview Lodge have got on.
John Clarke and friend Ken Brealey from Rochdale were here for their annual fishing trip to Ireland and this time stayed with Kevin and Jane at Melview Lodge in Longford, Kevin said during their stay they were lucky with the weather and managed some great Tench and some good catches of Roach, Hybrids and a few Bream.
Mark Smith along with friends Jess and Steve from Norfolk were over for a fishing trip to Ireland and this year decided to try Longford as a new base, the fishing started well for them fishing prebaited swims and managing Tench, Roach, Hybrids and a few Bream. Kevin said we started to prebait a different Bream venue but it was slow to get started, they did manage to catch a few cracking Bream but then the weather set in and made things very difficult for them.
However the guys still braved the weather to see if they could get the fish on the feed again but with the water levels of the lake rising 4ft in 24hrs and the wind they knew things were not going to improve for them, well done guys.
