Angling correspondent Michael Flanagan tells us:

Alfredo Maatz dropped over from Aachen in Germany for a few days fishing. It was a kind of a reckie trip to see what the fishing was like in the Midlands of Ireland. Alfredo got a cracking deal from Ryanair, and had return flights for 40 Euro. The pressure was on as he hopes to catch a pike of 100 cm, which would weight in and around 20lbs.  Not your average day fish, but we hit the jackpot as you can see in the photograph.  The super pike latched onto a small Bulldog trolled in 15-20 ft of water.
