|I initially thought a Rudd/Roach ...eh?|
I had also brought a Pike rod along so decided to set it up and cast it to an area in my periphery vision, so I could continue with the pole but have the pike float just a half glance away. There was a sunken weed bed to my right so I cast in front of this with a fresh caught Rudd live bait to roam around in front of the weed.
The Rudd and Roach continued to come on the pole, but soon the Pike float had started to stir too, it bobbed and moved off , I wound down and pulled into the fish. The first Jack Pike was landed and after a quick snap was taken it was returned.
|Jack two ..... Like peas in a pod|
The sprat was being ignored so I wound it in and packed up the Pike rod to concentrate on getting a few more baits before it was time to go home to get mower out and cut the lawn (whoo hoo, domestic chores ).
