Angling Guide and guesthouse owner Kevin Lyons reports from Melview Lodge:

Vincent Hurtes from the city of Rodez in the south of France along with friend José Léopardi were over to produce a article for the magazine “La Pêche et les Poissons” on feeder fishing in Ireland, Vincent himself specialises in feeder fishing and his website is http://peche-feeder.com.

Vincent and Jose prebaited and fished and couple of swims with only one of them producing good Bream and roach for them, they fished at 40 yards using the feeder with mainly red maggot and their feeder bait darkened down to match the bottom. Kevin said the lads more than made up for the lack of response from the other venue by catching some cracking Bream and Roach and some bonus big Perch, well done guys see you in France in January.

Vincent and friend José Léopardi display part of their catch of Bream and Roach.
