Just a note to say thank you very much

Just a note to say thank you very much for making out stay a very special week in the life of two anglers you not only put on us on the right pegs to ‘bag up’ with catches of 40-60kg but you made sure you had everything we needed, the accommodation at your house is next to none and ideal after a hard days fishing. Good food, a chat and a pint how good can life get, will see you again

First time at Melview Lodge and we were most impressed

First time at Melview Lodge and we were most impressed, Kev’s knowledge of local and surrounding areas is second to none, it’s the first time in many years fishing in Ireland when the host will put so much time and effort trying to help you make the magic ton. Boats, sandwiches, excellent rooms and a warm friendly atmosphere, it’s all here and we won’t be going anywhere else in the future, thanks Kev and Jane.
