Bodo Funke of  Angling Services Ireland reports on the pike and perch fishing in the Boyle area…

A PB for Steve

17 November: We had a new PB for Steve again today. It was a nice fish for what was probably the end of a great guiding season. Thanks to everyone who visited here this year and fished with us! I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!

David’s first Irish pike

David Horsey wrote to tell us that he caught his first ever Irish Pike a couple of weeks ago with Bodo. While it was not the largest at 14 lb (89cm) it was still a momentous catch for David, who had also caught two 5lb tench during his angling holiday.  David was over the moon with his achievements and tells us, “Ireland is the place for me! …I will be back.”
