Angling guide Michael Flanagan reports on a recent pike fishing trip to Lough Ree…

Pierre Henneron is back in Westmeath with his good lady and some friends. We featured Pierre last year in Angling Focus and the group is staying once again at Killinure Chalets on the shores of Lough Ree near Glasson.

Pierre Henneron from Paris with a  pike over 20lbs from Lough Ree is our ‘Catch of the Week’ winner

Pierre loves his pike fishing and had some fantastic sport in recent days catching some cracking pike well into the double figures.

The pike were fighting fit, and I got some super shots of pike tail walking and pitching 3-4ft out of the water as they hit our lures.
