Selby angler realises his dream of catching a big Irish pike

October 30th, 2012 | by

Phil Alford  from Selby, UK  has being  coming to Ireland  for a number of years  in search of  a  big  Irish  pike.  Up until  last week he  had only  doubles and jacks  to show for  his perseverance.  Fishing with Brian Bohan last week saw his luck improve. Brian suggested a lake  in the area that would produce  a few good fish this time of the year. Having got a key to access the lake from Brian, Phil had a  slow start with some  jacks turning  up. By the end of the day he had a good number of pike  with one  around the  14 lb mark , a nice days fishing  by any one’s  standards.  Phil was quite pleased with the outcome. The next  day  was much  the same  with a few more doubles for good measure.

He went again on the third day but something had changed and he went a long time without a bite. Then  in the afternoon  the  buzzer  sounded and as the line tore off the reel  he struck  into  a big fish.  To his  delight  he landed a beautiful pike, much bigger than he had previously got, in fine condition.
