When it comes to angling, always follow your desires, so I went pike fishing again

Two angling outings ago I wrote that I’d definitely catch next time because I was going to fish with maggots.

Then, up nice and early this morning, I decided to have a quickie before the Wales game with the mini-jigging rod.

I’ll be back out in the afternoon with the float rod though, I thought to myself.

However, after spotting – and connecting with one briefly – some pike on the lake I was on, I decided to return there with the dead bait gear.

Regardless of blank-chance percentages, it’s what I fancied doing and, as far as angling is concerned, always follow your desires, in that context.
