Coarse Anglers do Well at Melview Fishing Lodge Despite The Changing Weather Conditions.


Kevin Lyons reports on the week’s fishing at Melview Lodge:

Thomas from Dublin was back at Melview Fishing Lodge for his second visit and a spot of coarse fishing, and with no time to waste, it was straight out fishing. That evening the venue was prebaited at 35 yards, the following day produced some nice Hybrids, Roach and big Perch. Despite the ups and downs of the weather, Thomas decided to carry on prebaiting in the evenings on the same venue to see what it would produce. After losing some good Bream and Hybrids and the interruption of Pike coming to feed things went a little quiet. However a great few days of fishing had by Thomas, and he is looking forward to some winter Pike fishing with Kevin at Melview Fishing Lodge.

Tony, Graham and Bobby from the UK were over in Ireland for their annual fishing trip and this time decided to stay at Melview Fishing Lodge. On arrival, it was bags in the rooms and off to look at a couple of venues to fish. After a short session, it was in with the prebait and see what the next morning would produce for them. I was a little surprised how slow things started for them as they put in the time and work. The guys are very experienced when it comes to fishing in Ireland, so know things like this can happen. However, things did pick up a little for them over through the week and produced some nice Tench, Hybrids, Roach and small Bream. The guys don’t normally use keep nets but they did manage to get a couple of pictures for us, thanks for a fun week guys as I had lots of laughs and you were great company and hope to see you back in Ireland next year.
