Tell me about it, feeling old that is. What a cracking Pike, looks huge
A beautiful pike, sadly I wasn’t there to see it in the flesh. But holding the Roberts pike record for 25 years is long enough - I’ve got to try and beat it!!!
That's the joy of old photo's, they bring it all back and underline how far you have gone. 25 years ago I was relatively young and fit.... boy, do I feel old. Cracking fish though.
Twenty five years ago I was 19 - I wouldn’t recognise the old geezer on this blog. But I think I’d be glad he was still fishing...
Looks like the Roach bay. Brings back good memories
Paulos just messaged me to tell you not to give the peg away - now everyone will be trying to catch it!! :-)
It will be 40lb+ by now
I was fishing a little pond a few years ago (won’t mention the name as you’re not allowed to fish there) an old guy came over and told me there was a monster pike in there. Sparked my interest “yeah, it was 18 pounds and that was over 40 years ago, god knows how big it is by now”.
Cracking fish! Had a few trips to the wye lately, tough going though generally with a few fish out to low doubles only. I was hoping to fish a lot over xmas though looks like the latest rain will put a stop to that!
I’d settle for a few low doubles, in fact I’d settle for just one low double at the moment - so nice one. Seen the river is rising like mad, but if falls back quickly so fingers crossed. Good luck and keep me informed - cheers.
