Dutch Anglers enjoy their first visit to Ireland and Melview Fishing Lodge.


Peter and Hans from Holland were over here for their first-ever pike fishing trip in Ireland and stayed with host Kevin at Melview Fishing Lodge in Longford; it was just a short 4-day fishing trip to test out the waters and the fishing. The guys were just looking for some relaxing fishing and to experience what Ireland is about.

All smiles for Peter.

Kevin said the guys were never without a smile on their faces and, in their 4 days, managed 68 Pike to 87cm. Thank you guys it was a pleasure having you stay and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future to see if we can get that 100cm + for you, look forward to seeing you again.

A happy Hans
