What a fantastic pike! :Hat:
I only caught them to around 8lb from the backwater but had this 9lb salmon in 1990 wobbling a sprat.

It got a mention in the angling times (they got the weight wrong though).

Looks a lovely spot Mr B and some lovely photos. :Hat:

God never did make a more calm, quiet, innocent recreation than angling.

Well a lot of water has run over the weir since the last time I fished it.
Got a few tricks up my sleave for next seasion.
Last time I fished it there was a big Carp in the clear shallow water... I was hoping for a Barbel but on reflection a big one could have folded my rod up like a stick of liqurice!
Any recomendations for a good split cane Barbel rod?
