Visiting anglers to Foxford, Philippe Knech and friend David Reinhard from Switzerland, had a good day’s pike fishing with local guide Kenny Sloan. Catching a wild Irish  pike on fly was the agenda for the anglers.


After numerous pike caught, it was Philippe who had the pike of his lifetime at 1m long and just under 20lbs. It made the trip to Ireland worthwhile as this was his biggest on fly rod.

Philipp and friend hope to return next year to try again for another monster Irish pike.

Go fishing with Kenny…

Kenny Sloan has become synonymous with big pike in the Foxford area. Kenny can guide you on the big wild waters around him Conn and Cullen but he also has a lot of smaller waters at his disposal and even if the wind blows he always has some where to fish making your break as productive as possible.
