Gert Wiesenegger is all smiles with his second of the day

Angling Reports - 20 March 2016

Gert Wiesenegger from Austria decided on a Pike fishing holiday to Ireland and stayed with us at Melview Lodge in Longford. Gert, who has been to Ireland a couple times before, remarked that on both previous occasions the weather had not been too good but that this time things were really looking up.

The visit has started very well for him with the weather being perfect up to now. It is only early stages in his visit at the moment but the first day saw him catch some cracking fish to 18lb.  I had the pleasure of guiding him and we could see there were plenty of fish about but we only managed to catch two pike in the morning session. The afternoon session was a different story as we caught another ten fish one of which was a beautiful trout of just under 12lb which is my personal best.Well, we will see what the rest of the week has install for Gert.   I’m out fishing with him once again tomorrow so watch this space.   All fish released safely back to the water.
