Kevin Lyons reports from Melview Fishing Lodge:

French anglers Dominique, Gerard, Alain and Pascal ended their two weeks at Melview Fishing Lodge on a high. Mixing it up by using hard lures, soft plastics and dead baits, they managed some really great fishing considering the changing weather conditions during their fortnight long stay.

No two days were the same, with two of the more difficult days throwing up a couple of blanks for a two of them. However they more than made up for the hard days by catching some great fish from 97cm to 103 cm.

Just like like in years gone past, we always find time to celebrate Alain’s birthday with a few drinks, a meal and a good night on the town – and what a great night it was!

Thanks guys and look forward to seeing you again next year.

All Fish Released Unharmed.
