It’s nice to talk angling but you can’t beat being out there at the water’s edge, which was pike fishing this afternoon as far as I was concerned

Now that the still waters are completely free of ice, I got back on track with pool pike.

Although it was just a three hours afternoon session, I had plenty of activity.

As is invariably the case, I presented a small fish under a float.

There is definitely something pleasing about pursuing pike in this way.

Today was busy and I caught several fish, so a very positive afternoon.

That’s the biggest one in the lead image.
