Early start on the River today and an early bit of action at first light but on this occasion the Pike managed to free herself from my hooks and left me deflated. It looked a nice mid-double. The morning went by without further action and i began to think it was going to be one of those days but No! my bung bounced once more and after a ferocious battle i landed another magical fish over the magical 20lb barrier. Only by 4oz but what a stunning fish. Just wish the job-hunting was as lucky as my Piking has been this season.
