Angling guide Kevin Lyons of Melview Lodge has had guests from a number of different countries staying with him recently:

Father and Son Remi and Julien from France here for their first Pike Fishing trip to Ireland.

Remi and son Julien from France were over in Ireland for their first time and decided to stay at Melview Fishing Lodge in Longford. During their three days of fishing they managed some nice pike using a mixture of soft and hard lures along with a little dead baiting. It was a great time had by all and we hope to see them both back in Ireland soon, thank you again guy’s.

Emmanuel from Italy still catching on the fly during his down time.

Emmanuel from France was back out fishing on the fly and managed a few nice Pike once again, he has another two weeks remaining of his work experience here so we will see if he manages to net any more pike on the fly.

More Pike on the fly for Emmanuel.

Jim and Phil from the UK were over for their first ever pike fishing to Ireland and decided to stay at Melview Fishing Lodge with host Kevin. Being very keen to get started they were given a guided tour by Kevin and then it was off on their own. Fishing with both soft and hard lures and also spinner baits they managed some nice pike over the course of their week, we had some great laughs and it was a pleasure to have you stay guys. Thank you for everything and hope to see you guys again soon.
