Artur ‘Pike Seeker’ sent us in the report below where he describes catching a cracking pike on the River Barrow:

I bought a lure from Jacek Gorny, a “Disco Pike Size XL” and went fishing with a friend. We drove up the section of the Barrow River in Co. Carlow. It is a beautiful stretch of river. There was no contact for the first half of the day. At around 12 o’clock I cast a long throw between the reeds and started slowly retrieving the bait. After a while, I felt a strong blow. I have strong fishing equipment so there were no problems with hauling out. Beautiful pike and my PB 113cm, 11kg.
