Colum Walsh from our Limerick office reports that John Lynch contacted IFI last week to find out more about getting a scales certified for specimen pike angling. Over the the weekend he got a chance to put his newly certified scales to the test…

“Just to let you know I got sorted in the end with the scales and luckily enough had a chance to use it at the weekend. 18.2lbs Pike caught in Limerick city stretch of the Shannnon. This particular spot held breeding females every year when I was younger but has not produced a fish of this size in some years now so good to see a revival!”

Good to hear the bigger pike are back at that spot again and better luck next time in your quest for a specimen.
