Wye: High Pressure
On the Wye searching for pike and joined by my brother, Paulos - I don’t normally feel any real pressure to catch fish - but he’d travelled 4,127 miles from Georgia to wet a line here - must find a pike!
I needn’t have worried, Paul was soon into a pike about 7lb on a ledgered smelt -phew! A few hours and a bit of searching later a mid-double found the net, 15lb 9oz, on a float fished bleak. (+1.2)
Pressure off the trip we both added a jack each before I landed a mid-double on a ledgered sprat - unfortunately a recapture of Paul’s fifteen (2 hours later). Cracking first day - more to follow I hope...
