This report from Kevin Lyons of Melview Fishing Lodge:

Tony and Paul, who we mentioned last week, had an enjoyable finish to their week despite some high winds that restricted them to fish more sheltered places on a few occasions. The duo, who normally prefer the casting method, were forced to use trolling and dead baiting methods which paid off for them.

They managed 59 Pike to 95cm during their stay and I’m sure this would have been a lot more if the three days of bad weather had not hampered their efforts. Nevertheless, they had a great time also taking in some of the local Irish hospitality and we look forward to seeing them again. Well done guys and hope to see you again soon.
