I am back out on th
e Hampshire Avon today, doing a bit of pike fishing, as I have a day off work. It’s been a long time since I have been on the river, due to being obsessed with trying to catch the big common, with not much success!
Was cast by some reeds, with a mackerel dead bait and some Fox bait flags.
was cast on a nice clear sandy area, just off a overhanging tree, with a herring dead bait
By noon time, it was time for a brew and some lunch. Not 1 minute after I finished my brew and rod 2 by the tree had a couple of knocks! I quickly took the drop off bobbin off, held the line and it started to tighten up and I pulled into a nice river pike. After a good fight I had a nice 12lb 8oz river pike in the nets.
Till next time
