Outstanding flyfishing for pike for Gerald in Boyle


Bodo Funke of Angling Services Ireland reports…

Fly expert Gerlad from Austria, who is a regular visitor to the Boyle area, enjoyed a super week’s pike fishing recently. Conditions weren’t always ideal but Gerald finished his week with a total of 5 pike over the meter best at 104cm.

One of many super fish for Gerlad

He also had numerous 80+ and 90+ fish. Gerald was fishing his own sophisticated shooting head systems utilising a range of different density lines which enabled him to adapt quickly and vary the presentation of his XXL flies. Gerald showed once more that the fly can be as successful as “conventional” methods and even outperfom other lures when conditions are tricky.

Another stunning Esox for the Austrian fly expert

Gerald is already looking forward to October when he will return to Boyle to target more hard fighting Irish pike.

More recently, a rare opportunity to cast a fly line myself opened up while fishing with friends over the weekend. Nice to break in the new rod with a well-fed Esox over the magic one meter mark.

A great way to christen the new rod for Bodo
