Dry Spell Continues!

So my dry spell continues despite a serious attack at the Pike yesterday.

A wee lochan which has been on my radar for quite some time was finally accessed using the tubes. The lochan could not look any more Pikey – it was entirely reed and lilly pad lined. In fact getting into the loch was problematic however not as bad as I first thought. We had to ┬áseriously push our way through using the flippers but got their in the end..

The day was warmish with a couple of showers and just looked perfect for Pike. I used a selection of streamers and at one point even put on a popper to rip it over some of that nice calm water. the difference with this loch and a lot of places I fish for Pike is its depth – it is very deep going from about a foot to many meters very quickly. At one point I trawled a fly at a few meters deep right up the shoreline next to the weeds however got nothing.

We did catch a couple of Pike…

Alex’s pike was a few pounds and so was mine. Before starting we commented that we have still not had a big pike from the tube yet,we had some pretty high hopes from this place but alas it was not to be.

After a spot of dinner and some beer we headed to another loch and spooked some monsters.

I caught some micro pike and Alex had one try to smash his fly.

Trout evening sessions this week hopefully!
