Armagh Angler Stephen McGarvey was the envy of every pike anlger in the country this weekend when he landed a 32lb 2oz beast of a fish.  Stephen reports:

“After hours and hours of piking over the years, 1000,s miles driven, stupid o clock starts! I had one epic pike trip that made it all worth wile, a new PB and just entered the 30lb club, with a monster at 32lb 2oz, the fight and seeing the size of the fish go into the net was just heart stopping! Still shocked”
