Kevin Lyons reports on good coarse fishing for his clients fishing out from Melview Lodge.

Kevin Fuller, Simon Goodyear and John Barker from Norwich were over on a short five day fishing break and decided to stay with Kevin and Jane of Melview Lodge Longford. Kevin said as soon as they arrived at the lodge they were ready to go out looking at a couple of venues to prebait, one of the venues was slow to produce so we switched our attentions to the other. This proved to be a good move, fishing it for a couple of days produced some cracking Tench and also Bream, Hybrids, Roach and Rudd. The prebaiting and early mornings seemed to do the trick, well done lads.

Kevin, Simon and John from Norwich with a great catch of tench and other fish at Melview Lodge.

Some lakes, Loughs and Rivers in and around the Longford area have been slow to produce while others have been producing some great catches of all species. The weather along with wind direction has been changing from day to day making some days catches better than others. Anglers from the UK still continue to have some great catches of Tench along with some Bream and Plenty of Hybrids and Roach, both feeder and float tactics seemed to work using red maggots and worm cocktails.  Next week we will see how other anglers staying at Melview Lodge have done so log on to see what’s been going on and what’s been caught.
