I wish it was me but it isn't.

 

A member of the IAC has spent the day piking on a trout water and is reporting a 32-10, 25-12, 23-02 and three fish in the 7-10lb bracket. I'm no pike angler but that strikes me as a pretty good return.

Despite the somewhat serious expression, I really was very pleased with the fish. No, extremely pleased. No, ecstatic!

It's just that the fish was so bloody heavy & I was straining a little ;-)

A PB by slightly over 6lb - & over 30 years in the making!

Still on a bloody great high after a truly fantastic day ;-)
