Angling guide Mick Flanagan was out fishing with Gordon Davis who wanted to tick pike on the fly from his bucket list.

Box ticked! pike on fly

I field tested a few new F.H.M.S lures and they interested quite a few pike.  Gordon had nice pike on the fly and the lures tempted the big fish to attack.

Good looking pike

Late in the evening i got stuck into a plonker in the spills of rain. It was a really lovely pike – 23lbs 9oz and 110cm.
