French visitors enjoy superb pike sport in Longford.

French anglers Vincent, Maxime, Alain, Nicolas, Jeremy and Thibault were over in Ireland for their pike fishing holiday and decided to stay with their host Kevin at Melview Fishing Lodge in Longford.

The first couple of days produced Pike to 97cm and the second day was pretty much the same.

Maxime off to a great start

The guys fished a couple of different venues and as the week went on the fish started to hit the 100cm+.

Vincent with a nice 108cm fish

Casting both hard and soft lures they all managed to catch some great pike and at the same time losing a few very big ones.

Kevin said, “Not only did the fishing go to plan for the guys, they managed to take full advantage of the good old Irish hospitality and you can read between the lines on that one! Thank you guys for a great week and great company with lots of laughs along the way, hope to see you again soon.”
