No getting away from it…

Hmmm, obsession. Scott shows us how it is done by sending this photo of a rather nice looking Pike. It fell to a roach deadbait and muses that it would be a lot of fun if caught on a fly rod…

I bet you it would !

It reminds me of my own personal best caught on a rattling little gem – you can read about it by clicking here. I suppose my one regret is that I did not hold it up so you could see the full epic scale of it like Scott has done – although Scott is a lot less scared more proficient at handling Pike than I am.

I was thinking about the whole obsession thing again – I was sitting in the car on the way home from work today, sitting at the traffic lights actually and it was one of the few times that I was not thinking about fishing – I was thinking about my evening meal when suddenly my eyes focussed on the back of a  4 by 4 in front of me.

Yes – a picture of a pike with Esox lucius written underneath it. I think people must have thought I was a little odd as I wound down my window to take a picture of the car – but I think it is worth it as there is no way you guys would have believed me otherwise ! It was around 5 seconds after that that the weather forecast stated it was going to be gales and heavy rain for the weekend.

I am planning a trip on Saturday – there has got to be an omen in there somewhere…..but what of?
