Kevin Lyons of Melview Lodge in Longford reports on the pike fishing locally…
French angler Gerard back in Melview again
French angler Gerard was on his second visit to Melview Fishing Lodge in Longford to stay with his us. It took a little time to get going due to weather conditions on a few of the days but things paid off for him in the end. Dead baiting was the best approach using a range of different bait fish. The best of the fish were caught in and around depths of two or three metres.
Gerard was able to get a few hours fishing each day despite the changing weather. However when the fishing was not available he decided to tour around different parts of Ireland to take in the sights, a good time had and we hope to see him in Ireland again soon.

914 – James with his first of the trip.
Pike anglers Carl, Paul and James from Northern Ireland were down again for one of their many Pike fishing trips at Melview Fishing Lodge in Longford. The lads are no strangers to the waters around the area as they visit often for both Pike and coarse fishing.
They braved the wind and rain on some of the days to produce a good number of Pike during their stay. It’s always a good crack when these guys come down and I’m looking forward to their next visit.
Thanks lads and hope to see you all again soon.
ALL FISH RELEASED UNHARMED.
