Kevin Lyons of Melview Lodge in Longford reports on the coarse fishing in the Longford area…

Graham with a few of his Bream.

Graham and Diane from the UK  were over for a week’s coarse fishing and used Melview Fishing Lodge as their base. Faced with the hot and bright conditions Graham decided that early starts could be the best option. We prebaited a couple of venues which produced some nice bream, hybrids and and a lot of roach. It was decided that keep nets would not be used due to the bright hot conditions and low oxygen levels in the water however we did manage to get a early morning picture of a few of the Bream before the temperatures started to rise.
