30/11/13 The One Pike.

I spent a very pleasant day today in the company of my piking buddy Dave W on our most favourite stretch of river, and fishing for our most favourite winter freshwater adversary.
Dave's done extremely well of late here with three nice doubles in the last couple of trips so, It was with high hopes that we fished, particularly as the river was in near perfect condition.
The problem was, nobody had told the pike this and the only take of the day was a very long, thin distinctively marked seven pounder that took a shine to my sardine and turned out to be a recapture from Dave's previous trip from a swim about a couple of hundred yards upstream.
Once again we are reminded of the small number of pike in this water.
