Pike angler on the Barrow gets an unseasonal surprise

December 15th, 2011 | by

Carlow Coarse Angling Club Junior member Lewis Parr from Graiguecullen managed to net himself a huge suprise whilst fishing for a Pike locally to Carlow town. Lewis a regular on the river Barrow decided to go Pike fishing with his friend Robbie Lacey after finishing school early one day last week. The lads had purchased some Roach to use as bait in search of one of resident Pike in an area known locally as Mikey Websters. After around twenty minutes the rod signaled a bite which could only be a big fish and Lewis immediatley let the tension loose on the reel to allow the fish a fighting chance. Imagine the suprise on the lads faces when a huge brown Trout rose to the surface jumping and kicking in what can only be described as like a scene from Flipper. Lewis eventually managed to net the fish and after a few pics released the fish safe and well back into the river Barrow.
