Kevin Lyons from Melview Fishing Lodge reports on the recent fishing for a group of Dutch clients:

Johan with his first Pike of the trip.

Dutch anglers Thomas, Nick, and Johan were here once again after a long layoff from travelling to Ireland due to the Covid travel restrictions. During their previous visits, they have had some great Pike fishing, this time with the weather conditions changing, they had some days better than the others. However, they managed 62 Pike for the five days which was not too bad considering the weather. Casting both soft and hard lures produced some nice fish to the boat for them. They are already looking to return in early October for another trip; thanks for a great week, guys and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Nick had a good fight with this one
