Jack's Pike #16

This one reminds me of fishing with my Dad when I was a kid, I was the one saying five more minutes...

Tuesday 18 January 2011


Well I'm waiting to go pike fishing - I haven't caught a pike all season - and we are getting close to the end of January. I managed 2 twenties last season and 2 the season before that, and was hoping to continue the trend. The problem has been the weather, snow, frozen, rain, flood... I have been keeping an eye on the river levels and the weather reports and fingers crossed I'll be hitting the Wye very soon.

I have re-discovered my love of chub fishing and I'm spending the odd afternoon on the Wandle after my old favorite. I've just bought some whitebait and I will probably spend a few hours down there later this week. And probably a lot more time in the summer.

And this is my new wallpaper by Savage Gear which I think is pretty sweet, you can download it from the Savage Gear website here.

Chub Blog?

First fish of the year. 3lb 15oz

I escaped to the Wandte for an hours chub fishing this afternoon, resulting in two fish 3lb 15 oz & 4lb 4oz. Both fell for ledgered luncheon meat - I nearly missed the second fish while I was looking at the photo of the first one!

Thought I was getting better at these self takes. 4lb 4oz
