Bodo Funke of Angling Services Ireland reports…

German anglers, Rüdiger Orth together with his sons Jonas and Lukas, enjoyed some great pike action during their annual visit to Ireland. The three keen lure anglers visit the Boyle area for over 10 years and have managed a number of PBs during that time. This time it was Jonas’ turn with a fantastic pike measuring 110cm!

However, Rüdiger and Lukas also experienced some cracking pike fishing during their trip. The group’s best result was a memorable 10 fish day with many pike around the 1m mark.
