20b 14oz Ramor Pike
A 20lb 14oz pike caught on a Stuart Wylie hot orange, barbless pike fly

A very cold and frosty morning on Lough Ramor with temperatures only reaching 2C by 10.30am. I did however venture out on the lake, “well togged out with plenty of winter layers” and fly fished away for Ramor’s illusive ”Winter Pike”. The 20lb 14oz predator pictured above was caught on a Stuart Wylie hot orange pike barbless fly. I also had some missed opportunities and a several follows from some larger fish . This fine Ramor pike was returned safely to fight another day, just before the wind and rain came which hampered an excellent days fly fishing.  This Fish wins the Catch of the Week for this the third week in December.
