After all the surgery and weeks spent flat on his back doing bugger all, it's heartwarming to see Steve back in active service where he belongs - with his little finger up a rainbow's arse! Twisted Evil

Top man! Very Happy

Good to see you guys are still out and catching - almost enough to make me get my rods out of storage for one last trip - but not quite Very Happy

I heard a good story about a trout angler at Walley a week or so back - arriving to find 12 pikers set up along the bank, he asked if he could slip in, and promptly landed a 22lb pike on a black buzzer, while the dead baiters had nothing.

Saw the same story Laughing

Apparently, the Pikers lent him a big enough net - applauded him when he landed it on 8 LB line - and took a Photo for his album.



Well done that man Cool ..... Tony

The more I learn about pike, the less I know about them. Who would think that they would prefer a small Buzzer to a nice juicy half mackeral in November? Shock

Good try but not good enough. Twisted Evil I fully expect to see your name down for the Conclave, Dave. I think you enjoyed yourself last time you fished although maybe not! Laughing

Alan, I'm convinced that the pike don't intentionally take such small items. I think they are after the trout that is after the buzzer and get more (or less) than they bargained for when the trout makes a sharp diversion at the last moment. Very Happy

That could well happen Rich, although I have no doubt they do take take natural flies and larvae deliberately too. For example, a couple of years ago when Tony Lakefisher and I were fly fishing for pike on Chew we witnessed a pike taking hatching buzzers off the surface. At first we wondered what on earth was going on when a snout broke the surface and then rose several inches out of the water before dropping back below the surface again. We fell about laughing when we realised what it was! Laughing

Has anyone else witnessed this? Smile

What i find surprising is that ive hooked a fair few pike to diawl bachs but never has a pike taken a interest to a trout that ive been playing,unlike my coarse fishing dayse when they would scare the living daylights out of me when a pike would nab your fish just before slipping it into your landing net.
All being well i shall be having a dangle in the morning at the tanks.

cheers mike
