Just tought id share this with ye 2 weeks ago I was out pike fishing on an irish lough ....lough ennel its called and it a real ball breaker of a water but back in the 80 s this lake was known for producing many 30 s and the 2 40 s . to get to here I had to travell 350 mile round trip but i had a good feeling about the place met up with a friend of mine from dublin at 6 am and set afloat for half ..
it was on the first drift of the day and over 8/9 foot of water I had my first fish of the day a 6lb jack pike quick realise and back at it 100 metres on bang a decent fish took my fly and was taking line fast it was an epic battle with several blistering runs and tail walks but finally got her to the boat a new pb for me and a real boost to the confidence as im not long fly fishing for pike anyways heres the photos

It's a corker alright! I've yet to have my first pike....I'm hoping this season will put that to rights!
