A great recipe is to wrap a pike in soaking wet newspaper and cook in on an open fire.after 20 minutes remove it from the fire,unwrap the fish,chuck it in the bin and eat the newspaper ya crackpot.

Yes they are boney but they are definitely not as bad as many may think.i just couldn't kill a fish now,but when I was young I took the odd grayling and trout.
