Foxford is the centre for pike fishing in County Mayo and continues to provide great sport for coarse fishing anglers visiting Ireland.
Markus Müller reports
Christin Breuker from Germany, who was flyfishing for pike in the Foxford and Pontoon area, on Loughs Conn, Cullin, and Levally, enjoyed lots of success.
It was Christin’s first time flyfishing for pike in Ireland and she broke her personal best twice with two cracking pike just under the magic one metre mark (95cm and 97cm).
However, Christin landed a total of 13 pike with many between 70cm and 85cm, all on fly. Christin was using an intermediate line with roach imitations working best. She was guided by pike expert Kenny Sloan who has specialised in flyfishing for pike.
