Kevin Lyons reports from Melview Fishing Lodge in Co. Longford where Dutch pike anglers Patrick and Ruben were on their first Pike fishing trip to Ireland. They decided to stay at Melview Fishing Lodge where I hosted them and was their guide for the trip.

It turned out to be a very good angling trip for Patrick and Rueben. They found both trolling large lures in the deeper water and jerk baiting in two to three meters of water more productive. During their stay they managed to catch some good Pike. I’m sure we will be seeing them back in Ireland soon. Well done guys and hope to see you again soon.
