Dutch anglers enjoy a good week’s pike angling at Melview Fishing Lodge

Kevin Lyons of Melview Fishing Lodge reports…

Regular pike anglers Thomas, Joop, Nick and first timer Benji from Holland were over once again for their annual week’s pike fishing holiday.

Kevin said, these guys have been a number of times now and know the waters well. With them it’s not only about the fishing but having fun while here in Ireland. The guys managed 131 Pike to 97 cm with some bigger pike lost at the boat.

Joop lost a big fish when the trace he was using gave way only to be caught again the following day by two anglers from Italy staying with Kevin and the trace and hooks were removed which was great and was returned happily to the water again. They used all different methods of fishing including some float fished dead baits. Well done guys and thanks for the company and good laughs we had and hope to see you again soon!#
