Sylvian and friends Michelle, Etianne, Herve and Christian were over for their annual Pike fishing holiday and staying with Kevin and Jane at Melview Lodge for their second time. Kevin said the guys had a total of 116 fish most of a good size to 103cm for Michelle and 105cm for Etianne along with lots in the 90s, the guys used various methods but hard lures seemed to work this time around.

During their stay they experienced a mixture of sun, rain and some very high winds that hampered them in certain places. Well done guys hope to see you again next year.

All fish returned back unharmed.
