Kevin Lyons reports from Melview Fishing Lodge in Co. Longford where French anglers Pascal, Alain, Dominique and Gerard were once again over for their annual Pike fishing trip to Ireland. They are no strangers to the waters around the area as they have been here a number of times now and know it well. The anglers arrived in high spirits and were looking forward to fishing.
The weather was starting to change that week in comparison to the previous two weeks. There was some rain and wind which increased the already high water levels even further. However this did not bother the anglers one bit as they were looking forward to their fishing trip.
They used both lures and dead bait although the dead baits seemed more productive. They were staying for a week and enjoyed themselves very much as it was also one of the angler’s birthdays, Alain. They celebrated Alain’s birthday with a great night out and they enjoyed plenty of Irish food and hospitality.
Thank guys for another great week, and I look forward to seeing you next year.
ALL FISH WERE RETURNED UNHARMED.
