Michael Flanagan from Midlands Angling reports from Lough Ree…   I mentioned last week my old pal Pierre Henneron from Paris is back in Westmeath for a few weeks. While he is here he is doing a few days pike fishing. Pierre loves Lough Ree, and over the years has caught some huge pike.

On this trip the Lake is very high, but similar to Ennell very clear as there was so much floodwater. The best pike caught last week on Lough Ree measured over the magical 100cm, and Pierre caught this cracker on a Paddle Tail Lure. A few days are penciled in this week, but with so much fresh water again, its going to be tough fishing.
