Ok, Saturday was pretty awesome as I caught that big Pike that I don’t have a picture of unfortunately – however Sunday was just as awesome as I caught 4 (landed 2) – if they were all put together and then doubled, the new pike would be still half the size of yesterdays.
Anyway, lots of excitement in a short period of time – I caught one at this platform – casting close into the side, I noticed a disturbance in the water just next to where my fly hit the water and on the second cast the pike slammed into it. I watched a Jack chasing my fly and when it finally hit it basically fluffed it.
The pike just looked at the fly so I started to twitch it slowly away and then it pounced again this time staying on. Fantastic fun – even though these are just wee jack pike, I don’t think the biggest one today even reached a pound and a half; they put up an enjoyable scrap on the fly rod – plenty of acrobatics!
