Kevin Lyons of Melview Lodge in Longford reports on the recent pike catches in the area…

Bill Murphy from Dublin with just one of his nice Pike of the day.

Bill Murphy from Dublin who is a regular to Melview Fishing Lodge, braved the cold winds for a day’s Pike fishing in the Longford area.  I was also itching to get out on the water after a fair time of due to one thing or another. The weather was very cold and there were also high winds at times, but in the end it was worth it. We fished three different spots but Bill had the best fish of the day of 18lb taken on dead bait, thanks for a good day Bill.

All fish returned unharmed.
