Regular anglers Andy and Pete from the UK were here at Melview Fishing Lodge once again for their annual fishing trip, the first morning it was early breakfast and straight out fishing and the first day see lots of Roach, Hybrids and a couple of small Bream.

Then it was up and out before day light the rest of the week to fish on their prebaited swims, the very warm weather and seemed to slow the Bream fishing down and then it got to the point where they backed off completely due to a lot of Pike activity.

However they were blessed everyday with plenty of Tench, Roach, Hybrids and a few nice Bream so not all bad for the guys.

Host and Guide Kevin said, ‘These guys know when they have to change things around to adapt to the conditions which they done well to make their week a successful one. Well done lads and thanks for the laughs and company and look forward to seeing you next year‘.
